Leadership plays a large part in College life. Through co-curricular activities students are able to take part in:
Duke of Edinburgh
Coaching younger pupils
As well as this, certain pupils are allocated key whole school leadership roles as Head of House and subject prefects. We have a philosophy that in order to be an effective leader we all must understand service. To encourage this philosophy the students contribute to community projects and often volunteer to help in local projects, such as nature reserves nursing homes.
Our teaching and learning throughout College is based on the belief that each child is unique and as such, each should be nurtured and given the opportunity to excel. Our academic curriculum is delivered through the faculty structure with additional support for pupils in the Hub. The Hub provides support and extension work for pupils identified with additional needs.
We deliver a 3 year GCSE programme. This enables the pupils’ time to broaden and deepen their knowledge and access additional subjects. Academic and sporting achievement is celebrated through weekly Celebration Assemblies. These together with close home-school ties encourage our students to achieve to the very best of their ability.
Not only is each student monitored and supported by a Head of Year and Form Tutors, we also offer extensive University and Careers advice and guidance. We actively encourage links with outside agencies to facilitate a successful relationship with the wider community.
We strongly believe in the development of the whole person and reinforce this through our integrated wellbeing programme, which is delivered to all our pupils, throughout the year on a weekly basis. Wellbeing is presented as part of the e3 programme. We also hold conference days, including workshops on personal identity, relationships, understanding of other cultures, finance and diversity and many others. The aim of the wellbeing is to develop reflective and motivated learners with a sense of their own development and their role in society.
The partnership between home and school is very important to us and we positively encourage good communication between parents and teachers. There are two parents evenings a year which allow pupils progress to be discussed in detail with subject teachers, form tutors and year leaders.
We actively encourage you to contact the school at any time should you have concerns about any aspect of your child's education or wellbeing.

“The academic curriculum is very well supported by an excellent range of activities. These activities are a key factor in the development and promotion of pupils’ personal qualities “ – ISI 2014
Whilst our academic programmes are the heart of school life, we see our co-curricular as vital to a balanced well-rounded education. At Scarisbrick Hall we call these activities ‘E3’ (extend, enrich and excite).
In Middle and College our E3 run Monday through Thursday and follow themes on each day. Our E3 themes are: Wellbeing, Leadership, Arts and Sports, students select one option from each pathway that they then follow for one term.
