Big Lottery Funded Active8 Programme
Following on from the very successful programme last year nine sessions of various recreational taster activities were offered to our Year 10 girls during lunch and after school in June. These sessions were funded by the Big Lottery Fund. The sessions included body conditioning, fitness yoga, spinning, pilates, aerobics, circuit/step workshop, body combat, yoga, kick-boxing, body balance, salsa, street dance and hip-hop workshops. The aim of this programme was to try to encourage the girls to participate in their chosen activity out of school, so encouraging them to lead an active/healthy lifestyle. The programme ended with a day trip to Bath University. Here all the Y10 girls who attended from the various schools in the Mid-Wilts Sport Partnership were mixed together and participated in various workshops run by Team Bath throughout the day.
Sport Unlimited – Cheerleading
Taster sessions in Cheerleading were offered to our Year 10 girls.
Sport Unlimited – Dodge ball
Our sixth form have enjoyed playing dodge ball in the H-block gym. To develop this further money from the sport unlimited fund was ear marked to provide them with ten coaching sessions in the sport. The intention of this project is for our current Year 12 students to be trained in Dodge ball so enabling them to establish an intra-school dodge ball competition for our Year 7/8/9 students next academic year.
