Inter-House sports event at Slindon College was a huge success!

10 Nov 2020

At the end of last half term, Slindon College took to the open air for an epic whole school, Inter-House Sports event to celebrate the opening of our new Mountain Bike track; a new addition in 2020 to our incredible grounds situated within the South Downs National Park. The students raced around the track before taking to our heated swimming pool for the next part of the race!

Our Sixth Form students were given the job of planning the event. It was the first whole school inter-House sports event of this kind. In addition to this our Sixth Form students have been project managing the creation of our Slindon Bike Hub, a facility which will utilise the mountain bikes and tracks around the College’s National Trust grounds and woodland.The students have had support and guidance from a variety of staff within our Physical Education, Maths and Art departments. The students have had the opportunity to develop essential work based learning experience’s including: customer service skills, social media and website design as well as marketing, administration, coaching and leadership. A huge thank you to Mr Belcher and Mr Muir for helping to make the event a reality.

We are hoping this Duathlon will be a great kick-start to the future of this facility! If you’d like to see a short video of this event in action, head to our Facebook group now!
