Impact Statement

The Head of Biology went to a local school to work with and advise Year 12 Medics for their UCAS applications, providing practical and expert advice. The feedback received from staff and students was very positive and will have undoubtedly supported the students with their applications.

Our sixth form students are involved in 13 state primary schools on Thursday afternoons. Duties are many and varied, but typically involve helping with reading, mathematics, sport and computing. This 'community action' each week involves 282 hours of school teacher time per year.

The PE department hosted 6 local schools and examiners for GCSE and A level PE moderation, using our sports facilities (swimming pool, astroturf pitches, grass pitches, netball courts and sports hall) over 2 days.

We hosted two football festivals U11 and U9 for local schools and in October a local rugby club brought their u10 team to play on our pitches.

We ran meetings for Computer HoDs in York on behalf of the Pathfinder Teaching Alliance.

We hosted the Student Study Abroad Roadshow in March to which local secondary schools were invited to attend.

We attended a science evening at a local primary school to encourage interest in science add to the children's 'science capital'.
