Chipping Norton School is recognised as being an outstanding centre for the development of Sports Leaders. Our students follow a programme of sports leadership throughout the key stages often supporting their peers in lessons and hosting regular sports events for our local primary schools. Further information on this can be found on our Partnership page.
We have approximately 80 Year 12 students who train each year to gain the Nationally recognised Community Sports Leadership Award. They organise and officiate at a range of 12 primary festivals held at Chipping Norton School, including Dance, Hockey, Football, Netball, Athletics, Swimming and Multi-skills.
Each Yr11 student has the opportunity to participate in our young leaders programme during which they develop the skills necessary to lead a small group of primary students at one of our ball skills festivals throughout the year. After completing the course and festival our Yr11’s gain the CNS Sports Leader Certificate.
Leadership skills are promoted from KS3 with some of our students gaining the powerful experience of leading at our summer primary school tournaments and festivals from Yr7.
These student led sports festivals and tournaments allow over 2300 primary school pupils per year to attend sporting events in a safe and supportive environment. Thank you Chipping Norton School Leaders!
