Sports Leaders

Students in the Sixth Form have the opportunity to gain the Sports Leader Level 2 Award in Year 12 and then graduate onto Level 3 Award of Higher Sports Leaders (which also carries 30 UCAS points) in Year 13.
 
As part of the awards, voluntary hours in the community helping young people and the disabled are accumulated. Both local schools and the local council are involved in this scheme. Students are able to develop many important softer skills, such as communication, organisation, planning, flexibility, co-operation and leadership.
 
Kings Priory School has developed strong links with various agencies, who all appreciate the dedication and maturity of our students.
 

Extra Curricular

The extra-curricular programme of sport is a feature of the school. We encourage all pupils to get involved in lunchtime and after school activities.
 
Badminton is a prime example of this with hundreds of pupils participating in the clubs run to encourage an interest in the sport. Whether you want to play recreationally or compete for the school there are opportunities to do so.
 
We have several current pupils who started playing in lunchtime clubs, who have progressed to represent the school in the North Tyneside championships and then onto regional finals this year.
