Sparklers Club

Sparklers takes place weekly for girls in their final term of Year 6 and starting Year 7, it runs on Tuesdays from 4.30-5.45pm. It supports the transition from primary to secondary school by making it a smooth and enjoyable process. 

Junior Spark Club

Junior Spark is a weekly group for girls in years 8-9 on Thursdays from 4.30-6pm. Each term, the girls decide what topics they would like to work on or discuss – for example friendships, finding motivation, or challenges at school. 

Spark Club

Spark Club is a weekly club for girls in year 10 and above and, much like Sparklers and Junior Spark, is a space for girls to develop life and leadership skills. Girls are empowered to understand and value their identity and potential. Spark currently runs on Wednesdays from 5-7pm.

Sparking Futures 

Sparking Futures supports girls and young women aged 14 and above, who are interested in taking the next step towards their future careers.  

The programme offers young women a range of employability opportunities including:  

  • Monthly skills workshops: These cover tangible skills such as applying for jobs, writing a CV, presenting yourself in an interview, routes into employment as well as rights and responsibilities in the workplace.  
  • Work experience and career insight days: These take place in the school holidays and provide an opportunity for young women to gain hands-on experience and insight into a particular career and workplace.  
  • Career champions programme: Young women are matched with a professional whose career is aligned with the young person’s career aspirations and is able to offer them one to one career guidance and practical support.  
  • Career Panels: We organise two annual career panels where we invite successful and inspirational women from a broad range of sectors to talk about their journeys.  
  • Young volunteering: We offer exciting and varying opportunities to support girls of primary school age, in afterschool clubs at Baytree (4:00 – 5:00 pm or 5:00 – 6:00 pm). Volunteers need to commit to one hour a week, for 6-10 weeks. Clubs include one-to-one reading, art, maths, literacy, science and coding. Girls and young women are prepared and trained for their volunteering role and supported throughout their journey.
