Overview

We do not have a Wheelchair Basketball Club or any other Wheelchair Sports in the Borough. Putting on taster sessions during our Half Term Holidays and Para Multi-Sport events and gathering feedback from participants showed a big interest in the this type of sport.

Recently Havering Sixth Form College showed an interest in putting on a Wheelchair Basketball session where we liaise with local clubs/organisations such as:

-Local Basketball Club Right Development Foundation
-Local Schools and Colleges
-Disability Steering Groups
-Local Disability Community Groups
-Local Sport Clubs
-Havering SENCO departments

The idea being that we start with Wheelchair Basketball and open the club up to other Multi-Sport activities.

Accessibility Information:

The well-equipped, full-size sports hall is in use throughout the week for various Sport and PE lessons, but is also used for training sessions for many of the College sports teams.

Their recently extended fitness suite in Olympia House offers free weights, machine weights and cardio-vascular equipment including treadmills, rowers, bikes and steppers.

They currently employ a qualified fitness instructors who can offer tailor-made training plans along with advice on nutrition, lifestyle and health. As well as traditional measures of fitness, we are able to measure blood pressure, body fat, BMI and lung function to assist students in monitoring all aspects of their health. Students are required to undertake an induction and health screening questionnaire before using the fitness suite.

An outdoor table tennis table and equipment is available for student use during break times and students are also able to use the new MUGA (Multi-Use Games Area) at lunchtimes and after College.

The Zone at Havering Sixth Form College is a state-of-the-art facility offering holistic support for our students. This includes an IT suite and study space for academic study and showering and toilet facilities and a comfortable resting space for students with special educational needs, disabilities, illness or injury.

The Zone is managed by the SEND team, who have considerable experience in supporting students with additional needs. Other kinds of support available at the College include:
•Lift access
•Most of the College is wheelchair accessible
•Parking is available for students with disabilities
