Sport at Hayes Sixth Form

Whilst academic rigour is central to all that we do at Hayes Sixth Form, we recognise the role that sport can play in the personal development of all our students. Sport provides our students with help and support to improve their overall physical health, promotes positive emotional wellbeing and teaches students important wider skills such as team working, communication and leadership.

Hayes School Sixth Form boast a vast array of talented sportsmen and women who specialise in a range of sports. The majority of our Sixth Form students will take part in Football, Basketball, Netball and Rugby, but a large number also participate in a range of other sports which we support through increased timetable flexibility and access to our on-site fitness suite.

We have a number of links with specialist coaches who, in conjunction with the PE department, work with students to improve their fitness and skills. Our students represent the school in national competitions through a full fixture programme. Many of our students go on to represent the country and compete nationally and internationally in their chosen sports. We pride ourselves on providing our students with the opportunities to showcase their skills on a national scale, often as part of winning teams in a range of competitions and tournaments.

Elite Sports Programme

Whilst we encourage mass participation in sport by all members of our Sixth Form community, we seek to recruit and develop talented sportsmen and women as part of our Elite Sports Programme. These talented individuals have access to expert, professional coaching and development programmes as well as benefitting from access to professional sports teams. We have strong links with Saracens RFC and London Scottish RFC where our elite sportsmen and women will gain an insight into professional sport, gaining advice on training, skills and attitude needed to be successful in their chosen sport.

As a member of the Elite Sports Programme, students are expected to attend and participate in all training sessions, embody the school’s values and ethos as well as immersing themselves in the training sessions of our younger Hayes students as a sports leader. At the end of their study we also offer our students with the opportunity to apply for a one year full time contract to work as a PE Teaching Assistant within school to develop their skills and leadership capabilities further before embarking on their chosen next steps.

We are a forward-thinking school and Physical Education department continually exploring a range of new partnership opportunities and ways to enhance our provision for students. A number of our students have gone on to secure professional and semi-professional contracts with clubs on leaving Hayes Sixth Form.

Students wishing to apply for the Elite Sports Programme must make a full application to our Sixth Form by the deadline date and complete additional application forms for the scheme.
