At Sharples School, we provide students with opportunities to develop their character as well as their minds. The Sharples Bacc helps students form friendships and become part of our community, whilst developing the skills that make them stand out from the crowd.  This programme of extra-curricular activities prepares our Year 7 students for success in upper school, through the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and the potential to become a Gold Tie Student.

Students gain points throughout the year by showing their skills in leadership, creativity, STEM, sport and community. They can do this through our many clubs: Astronomy, International and Debating Clubs to name just a few! Other opportunities are provided by our brilliant trips, like Night at the Museum, and being a proud representative at school events, like the Sharples Family Meal.

At the end of Year 7, they graduate with either a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award and celebrate with a badge, certificate and celebration event.
