Giving our students "The Edge"
Here at Bingley Grammar we believe that success is not only measured by the grades you achieve but by the skills and attributes that you gain along the way.
To support this process we offer a broad and vibrant enrichment programme utilising the PiXL "The Edge" system. As part of the 'contract' of joining our Sixth Form we insist that every student should utilise the opportunities available, gain wider experiences and create their own enrichment portfolio thereby giving them "The Edge", especially when it comes to UCAS application time.
How it works:
The scheme focusses on 5 key attributes: Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative and Communication.
Having completed activity programmes related to the key attributes and accredited through the examination board, students will qualify at three levels: PiXL Apprentice, PiXL Graduate and PiXL Masters. Students set their own pace and record their progress using a specially designed online secure platform.
