Getting Involved - The Brunts Academy

Getting Involved

Committee

Each year a committee is elected from members of Years 12 and 13, to work in conjunction with the Sixth Form tutors. The committee serves a vital purpose in representing opinions, offering suggestions and providing a link between staff and students. It is also responsible for the organisation of social functions as well as events to foster our links with the local community and charities.

A number of the Sixth Form Committee represent the Sixth Form at the School Council.


Reading Pairs

The Reading Pairs Scheme is designed to support students who have difficulties with reading. In September of each year, Sixth Formers are given the opportunity to help with the Scheme. Volunteers are paired up with younger members of the school and the pairs read together. Students usually find that their reading skills develop, and having one to one attention from a Sixth Former boosts their confidence. Volunteers benefit by developing their patience, understanding and communication skills. Involvement in Reading Pairs also shows evidence of willingness to participate in voluntary work, an ability to empathise with others and can be useful for a variety of careers that involve dealing with people.


Sports Leaders

All Sixth Form students have the opportunity to work towards Sports Leaders qualifications.  Year 12 can follow the Community Sports Leadership qualification and Year 13 the Higher Sports Leadership qualification.

Students are First Aid trained as part of the qualification.

Activities can include running lunch and after school clubs with both Brunts and Brunts’ feeder primary school students.
