Pathway Project – Year 8 to Duke of Edinburgh Bronze and Silver
The project moves into its second year working with pupils from Year 8 and passing them on to the Duke of Edinburgh scheme. The project’s ethos is to provide opportunity and experience to support pupils in moving through the School. I am pleased to report that Merseyside Police, The James Greenop Foundation and Prescot School Trustees have all committed to annual funding to roll out the scheme in years to come.
The last 18 months has seen the pupils work with British Cycling BMX stars, take part in residential visits to Tan Y Graig, mountain biking in Wales and a trip to a Free running academy. One of the highlights was a recent trip to the ‘Knife Angel’ at Liverpool Cathedral.
I am pleased to announce that the Headteacher has agreed to support a mountain biking trip to Austria in 2021 when the pupils complete their GCSEs and Duke of Edinburgh awards.
Well done to all involved – PC Will Hughes
