Students are leading the way

YEAR 13 Higher sportsleaders from Matlock’s Highfields School have been assisting at the County S.E.N Festival, held at Chesterfield Tennis Club last week.

Over 70 pupils from around Derbyshire with special educational needs attended for a morning of activities. The Highfields students are studying for a Sportsleaders UK Level Three award. A part of this award is to help students with special needs.

The event was run by Gill Hawketts from Ashgate Croft School. Gill had visited the Highfields back in October to give them students training in Sportsability.
