Every year 7 student has the chance to participate in a climbing session on our new purpose-built tower situated in the school grounds.
During the Autumn term, students in year 7 will have a 2-hour session on the climbing wall in their form groups. The purpose of this session is to build student confidence, help develop friendships and aid in the transition from primary school to secondary school.
All students will work towards their Bronze award
Bikeability is a scheme based on the government approved National Standards for cycling training. The aim of the programme is to gain practical cycling skills to give students the skills and confidence to cycle on today’s roads. Bikeability is much more than a cycle training programme. It delivers wide-ranging and long-lasting benefits to the students, their families and the community. Bikeability supports the culture, ethos and environment of a healthy school.
Bikeability is organised and delivered at King Edward VI King’s Norton School for Boys to years 7, depending on their previous experience of the award in their primary school:
- Level 1 – Bikeability aims to develop cycle handling in an off-road environment and prepare riders for cycling on the road. Riders must be able to cycle (i.e. pedal and glide) to participate in Bikeability Level 1.
- Level 2 – Bikeability will develop riders’ skills and confidence for cycling on single-lane roads and simple junctions with mostly moderate motor traffic flows, preparing riders to deal with short journeys such as cycling to school or the local shops.
KS3 Residential Experience
Every student in year 7 can take part in a fun-filled residential experience. Students will have fun learning new skills and participating in a wide range of activities. This is a fantastic opportunity for students to grow their personal development, focusing on social and communication skills, living and working with their peers.
