Virtual Enrichment's

Now more than ever, as a college we are working with you to identify new ways of working and initiatives to engage our student body as we continue to work remotely during Covid-19.

We have created this page to share with you exciting experiences you can complete virtually such as certificates, online arts, debates and many more. We encourage our students to continue with personal and professional development and use online resources to build their skillset and have fun!

You will receive points for each activity, which will be converted into Bronze, Silver and Gold Electronic Badges, these can be traded in for a prize when we return to college. Please click the tab below "electronic badges" to find out how to earn your points. 

While you are studying at John Leggott College, there are a wide range of opportunities to get involved with activities, events, trips and competitions. Whether you want to join a society to support your studies, develop your skills or just try out a new hobby, there is always something different on offer!
