A thriving leadership programme is headed up by the very successful Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Sports Leader programmes and the establishment of “Team QE”; an in house initiative to provide Young Ambassadors and Peer Mentors to work across all areas of school life and within the wider community.
Queen Elizabeth’s School prides itself on the volume and quality of outreach work that occurs; colleagues and students regularly work within our feeder First and Middle Schools supporting and creating a range of opportunities using sport as a vehicle to learn both for the leaders and the pupils in the partner schools.
We also are pleased to have developed an excellent base of opportunities via our affiliation to the Youth Sport Trust; some of the programmes that we have been actively involved in are as follows:
As a Sports College we work closely with the Exercise Physiologists VOTWO, they are based within the Athlete Education Centre and provide support for students academically and for those working on a performance programme within their own sports. Close liaison occurs between the National Governing Bodies and their fitness protocols as well as supporting students studying a range of subjects at GCSE or Advanced level with their coursework and their preparation for their final examinations.
As a Sports College we are constantly striving to improve our provision of opportunities for all members of the school and wider community.
