Ashlyns’ Awarded Academy Status

Ashlyns School has been awarded Leadership Academy Status by Sports Leaders UK.
The Academy status recognises the high commitment the school places on developing leadership, especially Sports leadership within the school community.

In recognising Ashlyns School, Sports Leaders UK wrote, “You have earned this unique status because you have been able to demonstrate your commitment to the philosophy of Sports Leaders UK and the benefits of leadership to young people and the community”.

Ashlyns School delivers a number of Sports Leader courses helping students to develop fundamental leadership skills throughout their school life.

Mr Jones, Head of the Leadership Programme, said, “This award is a tremendous testament to the work that our leaders across the entire school produce on a continual basis. They are an absolute credit to the school and deserve all the praise that they receive. May I take this opportunity to say a massive thank you and well done to all involved, from Ashlyns School”.

To celebrate becoming a Leadership Academy, Margaret Peggie (Honorary Vice President) and Shelley Meyern from Sports Leaders UK presented a plaque on Wednesday 26th March to the Sports Leaders of Ashlyns. This presentation also provided an opportunity to see the Sports Leaders in action during a Multi-Skill Sports Festival for Year 3 pupils from Greenway Primary School.
