The Phoenix Edge



At Phoenix, we aim to inspire and expand students as individuals by developing personal attributes that are essential for employability and life.  In collaboration with PiXL (leading network of partnership schools in the UK), we have devised a bespoke character education programme, ‘The Phoenix Edge’ that equips students to develop five key life attributes through a series of targeted activities and challenges.  Attributes are Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative and Communication.

Students will independently progress through three levels (Apprentice, Graduate & Masters) during their time at Phoenix alongside their academic successes.  Some aspects of the programme is delivered through the Student Enrichment Days, Tutor time and time at home.  On completion of a level, students will receive a certificate awarded by the NCFE and signed by Sir John Rowling, Founder of PiXL and will receive an interactive digi-badge for social media and email usage.  Students will become self-assured and confident and will gain a portfolio of evidence that demonstrates quality skills and attributes achieved for a well-rounded education. 

For more information about The Edge, please visit or speak to Mrs R. Kapoor, Leading Edge Coordinator at Phoenix Collegiate.
