The Pledge is a national scheme devised to develop and accredit our students with those personal attributes essential for successful employability and life. The scheme focuses on five attributes: Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative and Communication.

Students in Years 7-10 spend Thursday tutor time reflecting on their own leadership skills and setting personal leadership Pledges. These pledges have seen our students independently leading whole class PE warm-ups, becoming student librarians, assisting primary school students in improving their ballet skills and many more.  Once students have completed one  or two challenges for each attribute (dependent on year group), they will be awarded their BVC Challenge bronze award.

In addition to gaining their bronze award, all students that complete their pledges will be entered into a half-termly draw to win a shopping voucher. 


Students in Year 7 and 8 are encouraged to apply to become a PLEDGE AMBASSADOR.
