The Russell Group is relaunching its guide for Year 10 and 11 pupils on subject choice to study at sixth form or college and how it relates to their future study and careers. The renewed guidance is particularly targeted towards supporting less advantaged pupils, who may not always receive the same level of advice as their better off peers.

In March 2018, we ran a heart screening day in conjunction with Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) and Wave Leisure. We are trying to raise funds to hold another day. Healthy Hearts is a month-long event supporting CRY. CRY undertake ground-breaking research into the causes of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) and also provide local screenings to help detect those with undiagnosed heart problems aged between 14 and 35. Healthy Hearts are hosting a number of challenges in June including swimming, running, walking and cycling which you can get sponsored for. Anyone can take part in these challenges, ether at Wave Leisure or elsewhere. Find out more using the Healthy Hearts website. Please note: This is a Healthy Hearts event - Wave is supporting the event by providing an optional venue for the activities
