At Pendleton Sixth Form College, we understand the importance of more than just academic work.
We strive to enhance the prospects of every student be offering a variety of enrichment opportunities to broaden their horizons and give them the advantage upon leaving college.
Charity, Volunteering and Fundraising
We encourage each and every student to aid others through charitable work. To do this we work with a number of charities and organisations including Salford Community Leisure, Manchester Football Association and our own Volunteer Task Force Group. Throughout the year, we hold fundraising events organised by students to benefit causes close to the hearts of the Pendleton Community.
Competition and Sport
We strive to promote to all of our students the importance of a healthy lifestyle, by offering a range of sporting and fitness activities. These range from badminton to basketball, volleyball to netball and football. Students also have use of a gym and fitness suite, open during college hours. We also have a partnership with the MUFC Foundation, who train our Pendleton football team. Students have the opportunity to attend trials for the team. All students are welcome to attend football enrichment sessions on the new 3G pitch.
