Students develop key Bikeability skills

As more people are being encouraged to take up cycling and enjoy all the benefits that this brings, mastering the skills to ride safely on our roads is key. This is why we give students the opportunity to improve their riding proficiency through an annual Bikeability programme.

The course, led by qualified instructors and funded by the Department for Transport, enables students to learn on carefully selected routes and is designed to give young riders the practical skills, understanding and awareness needed to cycle safely on today’s roads. The training also has a positive impact on pupils’ wellbeing a they learn vital life skills; gaining independence, confidence and a real sense of accomplishment.

Bikeability is offered free of charge to students in Years 7 or 8 and incorporates two hours of instruction (Level 1) on the school playground, followed by up to six hours of instruction (Level 2) on carefully selected roads to give cyclists realistic training with expert supervision. Pupils who have already completed Level 1 will then work to achieve their Level 2 award.

We believe that individuals count. So we are interested in what makes us all different. Not just what makes us the same.
