Leading Edge

PiXL Edge is a framework for secondary schools and sixth form providers to develop and accredit in students those personal attributes essential for employability and life. At Sale High School we have launched the initiative with our Y8 Students. Students will continue with the programme throughout their school journey right through to Y11.

The scheme focusses on 5 key attributes:

  • Leadership
  • Organisation
  • Resilience
  • Initiative
  • Communication  

Students must complete activity programmes each term related to the key attributes. These are then accredited through the examination board and students qualify at three levels;

  • Apprentice 
  • Graduate 
  • Master 

Activities can take place in or out of school, be curricular or extra-curricular, but must be selected from our PiXL activities database. 

The network of PiXL Edge schools allows exchange of ideas and opportunities for activities in which students develop their key attributes.

Students set their own pace and record their progress using a specially designed online secure platform.  Until now, there has been no national framework drawing together and accrediting the huge range of valuable activities which students undertake alongside their academic activities.

Here are some photographs of our Y8s completing their activities.
