Activities and sport
The Leigh UTC takes part in a number of sporting events and activities.
We have a Post 16 and Year 10 Football team. The Post 16 team have played in both the Kent and North Kent Cups and the Year 10s have played some friendly fixtures. In addition, we run the Boxing for Schools Programme with the Year 10 students. This involves the students taking part in a 12 week non-contact Boxing and Fitness programme with the aim of improving the students’ focus, discipline and control. This is the second year that we have taken part in this programme.
We have also taken part in some athletics events. Last year the Year 10 students took part in the Leigh Trust Athletics championships at Dartford Harriers and we intend to take part in it again this year. We also had two students who represented the UTC in the district cross country championships with one of the Year 11 students coming in 12th place.
During curriculum time the students take part in Table Tennis, Basketball, Football and Health Related Exercise. An after school gym club is held on Wednesdays and Fridays each week.
