We are continually developing enrichment opportunities and initiatives for students at Eggar’s to excel beyond the national curriculum.

Bikeability  

Bikeability is ‘cycling proficiency’ for the 21st century, designed to give the next generation the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today’s roads. The initiative follows on from the Level 1 & 2 that is generally delivered in primary schools.  Bikeability week in 2019 commences on Monday 13 May.  
 

National Citizen Service (NCS) 

National Citizen Service (NCS) is a flagship government initiative that has the support of schools, colleges and local businesses around the country. It offers a unique opportunity for students aged 16 & 17 to come together with others that life would ordinarily have them pass by. Over several weeks it provides them with an amazing springboard for the future by developing new skills, confidence and a broader set of horizons. Participants do different and exciting activities, meet new people, learn lessons that can’t be learned in a classroom and put their energy and enthusiasm into projects that matter to them.

WORLD RESTART A HEART DAY 

World Restart a Heart Day is a day aimed at teaching secondary school children CPR and delivered by South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust. They have teamed up with the Resuscitation Council UK and The British Heart Foundation to provide hands-on CPR training to our pupils on Tuesday, 16th October 2018. During last year’s Restart a Heart Day, more than 5,000 youngsters were taught cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) across the South Central Ambulance Service operating area.

Currently in the UK, less than one (8.6%) in ten people survive a cardiac arrest. If we achieved the same survival rates of countries like Norway (25%), where CPR is taught in schools, an additional 100 lives could be saved each week - the equivalent of approximately 5,000 every year.
