  • Sports Leaders


Parkside values the role of leadership and encourages it in both curricular and extra curricula activities. 

In year 9 students have the opportunity of following a Level 1 Sports Leaders course during PE lessons.  Level 1 leaders are expected to offer at least 1 hour of leadership either within school or at local primary schools.  In year 10 we offer the Level 2 sports leaders and in post 16 enrichment we offer Level 3 Sports Leaders.  These qualifications are more in depth and require more commitment and expertise from students as far as Leadership and time commitments.  We have very good links with local primary schools where ports leaders have the opportunity to develop their skills.

Benefits for a student
