Shenfield High School

YEAR 7 SPORTS ACADEMY

By applying for a selected placement based on aptitude in sports, children and their parents are making a commitment to the full involvement of that child in the sports curriculum and extra-curricular programme.  Selected pupils will be expected to work hard at all their subjects in the National Curriculum, as well as at their specialism in Sports.  The school encourages all pupils to achieve their full potential and with those selected, their talents in the Sports will be developed to levels of excellence.  This will be in the context of the education of the whole child.  A partnership between school and home therefore is essential if a pupil is to succeed to the best of their ability.

To apply for a selected place on aptitude for the Sports Academy please complete and submit direct to the school the following by Monday 5th October 2020:

Sports Academy Supplementary Information Form (SIF)

Aptitude testing will take place on  Saturday 10th October 2020 12pm - 2.30pm

 

Strong applications will be invited to attend the Sports Aptitude Testing week commencing 5th Ocotber 2020. 

 

Given the current situation with Covid we will adapt the JSA testing procedure in October 2020 to do it outside on our astro so there is more space and ventilation than in our indoor facilities. We will of course provide opportunities for regular sanitation and expect students who are displaying any Covid symptoms not to attend. Students will need practical sports kit and will obviously need to be prepared for inclement weather and wear molded football boots or astro trainers for better grip than trainers as well as bringing their own labelled drinks bottle.
