Young Leader Award
Our Year 8 pupils have started their Sports Leaders UK ‘Young Leader Award’ programme. This is a certified course which pupils can use to demonstrate their leadership skills and is an exciting opportunity which will see them act as ambassadors for St Hugh’s.
The Young Leader Award does not consider a learner’s sporting ability but instead helps them develop leadership skills which they can use to lead others in sports activities. Young Leaders who complete the Award must be able to communicate effectively, be organised, take responsibility and work with other people; all core skills which are important throughout life.
Once the pupils have learnt how to lead others they will be encouraged to use these leadership skills in a whole host of different ways; from leading their peers and younger children in St Hugh's to supporting activities within the local community.
