SPORTS LEADERS AT LGGS
 

'Health and Wellbeing is our main priority at LGGS, we want all our students to be happy and involved and to know they are supported by staff and their peers. Whatever option you chose, the purpose is the same, to establish habits that allow you to take time out from your studies and promote a positive way of relaxing that will support you in your adult life.' LGGS Sixth Form Team


A few words from our Sports Captain and current Sixth Form students …

Sports captain introduction

Sport has been a fantastic part of my time at LGGS. So far in year 12, I have been able to play, coach and umpire which has allowed me to gain invaluable skills and more importantly really enjoy my time in LGGS Sixth Form. Sport has given me a drive and passion outside of my academic studies, and I am grateful to LGGS for getting me involved.

In Sixth Form you have the opportunity to be a part of the Games Team. My role as Sports Captain is to help the PE staff with organising events and running training and fixtures for younger years. The Games Team have had brilliant ideas of promoting sport and providing opportunities throughout the school. Roles in our current Games Team involve coaching and mentoring; year 7 and 8 ambassadors; and specific sports ambassadors, such as netball or football. I hope this is something that many people will come to enjoy and embrace.
 

Comments from Sixth Formers

Sport and wellbeing have helped to get rid of the stress of A-levels. It gives you a break when you walk down to the field and play sport with your mates. Sport teaches you to balance your academic/work life with hobbies and other commitments, which is a crucial life skill.

As someone who joined LGGS in year 12, sport and wellbeing have been a good opportunity to make new friends and see a different side to people who I wouldn’t have necessarily talked to before. It has just been a nice relaxing start, especially well-being. The teachers are supportive and everyone is friendly. It made me feel welcome.

We have been able to take part in netball fixtures and have had weekly training sessions during the autumn and spring terms - it has been great training as a team. Also in sixth form, you can coach and umpire younger years, which has been extremely rewarding and valuable for later life.
