There are many ways your child can get involved in College life from playing sport, to social events, to even being able to take part in having a voice in shaping the College strategy; as a student governor.

Activities outside of their studies provide a great way to relax, meet new people and enhance their skills and personal development. Any ideas for activities or events are welcome at any time and they can speak to a member of the Student Services Team with any suggestions. 

Examples of previous student led activities include:

  • Organising a games league i.e. table tennis or connect 4
  • Film Club
  • Ladies Only – Girls group meeting to talk about girl’s stuff
  • Debating Club – talking about the topics on your mind
  • Celebrating Black History month with foods from different cultures and inspiring role models
  • English Speaking Club
  • Charitable events like Children in Need, Red Nose Day

 

Sport at College

Sport and physical activity are a big part of College life for many of our students, not only a great way to make new friends but an opportunity to let off some steam, take a look at the video to learn more about sports activities outside of lesson time:

 

Barnet and Southgate College is one of the leading Colleges in the country for Sports and athletic performance and at the forefront in London. In 2019 alone, we saw multiple AoC Sport National Championships medallists, League successes, numerous students capped and selected for England or Great Britain and others achieving professional contracts or succeeding in elite level competition outside of the College. If your child wants to take a sporting skill further they can apply for one of the College's sporting academies. 

 

Sports Academies at the College:

-Men’s Football (partnered with Tottenham Hotspur FC and Borehamwood FC)

-Women’s Football (partnered with Tottenham Hotspur Women FC)

-Athletics (Lee Valley Athletics Centre in partnership with Imperium Sports)

-Basketball (Partnered with London City Royals)

-Boxing (partnered with England Boxing)

-Tennis (partnered with WimX).

-American Football (NFL Academy)

-Volleyball is not an academy but there is a men and women’s team that compete regionally and nationally.

 

TASS: The College was one of the first Colleges in the UK to be accredited as a TASS (Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme) Dual Career centre. The Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS) provides the opportunity for young International; National or Regional level athletes in any sport to get the very best out of their academic and sporting ability, without having to make the hard decision between the two. To be eligible they must compete at international, national or even regional level in their sport and they need support to achieve in training, competition and academically.
