Sports, Clubs and Activities
Year 7 Debate Club
Debate club is the perfect place to build and develop effective communication skills that will be valuable throughout your life, within university and afterwards.
If you find yourself struggling with presentations, tested by interviews or just feeling like improving your ability to get your point across in conversation, then Debate club is the best place to get help in these vital areas, whilst learning about the wider world and debating topics on anything from animal cruelty to cancel culture - all decided by the students. Students are given the opportunity to make like-minded friends, develop their confidence and learn more about the world in an encouraging and welcoming environment. We are hoping to find some competitions to enter in the new year.

Duke Of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme
Since 1995 Bassaleg School has been proud to offer The Duke of Edinburgh’s award to all our learners, in one form or another.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award was created in 1956, empowering young people with lifelong skills, as well as a belief in themselves and the abilities of their peers. These prestigious international awards demonstrate clearly that young people are valuable members of our communities, capable of great achievement, responsibility and leadership.
Sadly, due to the Covid19 lockdowns and the restrictions put on all school activities during this time, we have been unable to offer any Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards or activities to our Learners.
Happy times before Covid, The Epic Team Foxtrot,
Bronze Expedition September 2019. It rained a lot!
However, we are pleased to announce that The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is now back in Bassaleg School and it’s even better! We will now be offering Direct Entry Silver and Gold from now on.
This year, the focus is on the year groups that missed out, because of the pandemic. Next year, 2022/23, we will be able to offer direct Entry Silver to every student in Yr10 and 11. Gold will be offered to every student in the 6th Form.
