Blueberry muffins, crêpes, grapes, raspberries and strawberries all washed down with some fresh fruit juice, not a bad way to spend a Friday registration! This was how the PE highly able students spent their morning on the 15th December as an introduction to the scheme and a chance to meet each other and to talk about all the sports they have competed in for College. The highly able scheme has taken over from the old gifted and talented programme and is a significantly scaled down version in order to create a bit more focussed work. We have left out year 7 and 11 as we haven’t had the chance to get to know our new students well enough yet and for Year 11 we felt that it would be too much for them in such a high-pressured year. Our criteria for selection was that student’s must have shown a high level of ability and represented the College in a number of sports and/or activities and have an excellent attitude toward their PE lessons. We will look to have more sessions throughout the year and students can expect to be stretched both physically and through questioning during PE lessons. Finally, I would like to congratulate all the students below for being selected, they are an excellent representation of sport and PE within HCC.
Amelie Owen, Zara Maynard, Mac Boyd, James Goodman, Harry Smith, Hollie Henwood, Joe Evans, Alfie Siggers, Lois Norman, Laura Beth Outram, Erin Humphris.
