Sixth Form students have successfully completed a nationally-recognised Emergency First Aid qualification.

Eleven students voluntarily attended three two-hour sessions after school as part of their enrichment activities.

They learnt a range of skills, including CPR (cardio-pulmonary resuscitation) and use of AED (automated external defibrillator) together with how to treat major bleeding, burns, seizures, choking and fainting.  

The course is organised by Sixth Form Manager, Mrs L Corbett, who said: “This is an essential life skill which will also be a fantastic addition to their University and job applications in the future.” Mrs Corbett runs Emergency First Aid courses throughout the year, with approximately 60 staff and students gaining qualifications during the last year.
