Youth Support Award

OSCA has been asked to be a pilot school for a new award being offered by the Youth Sports Trust. The Youth Support Award (YSA) is an award that promotes the importance of being physically active and how it is beneficial to physical and mental well-being. It also provides students with the opportunities to develop personal skills through voluntary leadership opportunities.

A selection of year 8 students have spent a morning working with former Olympian and World champion Daniel Caines as part of this award. Students have been developing skills and participating in a range of practical workshops to promote valuable life skills and learning the importance of the role of students within the Youth Sport Trust schemes being offered to academies around the country.

We are privileged to have the opportunity to work with Daniel again who visited us last year as part of the Sky sports Living For Sport scheme.
