Ashley Sixth Form

Sport and Leisure

Ashley School has a long standing history of being involved in Disability Sport across Halton and Merseyside, giving students numerous opportunities for personal development and success through the power of sport. We attend most events organised in the area and have built on a solid PE curriculum to gain access to a wide range of sports and activities across our locality in and out of school hours. We have strong links with community partners and Ashley students have found success at local, regional, national and international level. Our PE motto is simply "Everybody Active". Students can access a range of activities both within the 6th Form and in the community.

Vocational Courses in Sport and Leisure

Students have the opportunity to develop vocational skills within accredited Sports courses. Students will develop important life skills, such as communication skills, organisational skills and an increased understanding of the value of exercise and physical activity within a healthy lifestyle.
