We offer all students the chance to deepen and enrich their studies, to go above and beyond just gaining qualifications. In particular, we offer you the chance to personalise your education and we challenge you to go on a journey to extend your thinking, your skills, your intellect so that you can engage in debate or discussion at interview and show the real potential that universities or employers seek. The planned enrichment programme which has dedicated time allocated to it each week on your timetable will give you the opportunity to develop those skills that have been identified as vital to achieving success in adult life. The skills of working with others, problem solving and independent learning will be developed via a range of options including:
- Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme
- Team sports and Sports Leadership Awards
- The British Red Cross public first aid course
- Working with younger pupils
- International links with other colleges
- The Chaplaincy team
Students are encouraged to participate in sport, performing arts or community action projects either within the school or the neighbouring community. We offer a diverse selection of extra–curricular activities and events including travel abroad, theatre and educational visits, university information fairs and residential retreats – all of which will enrich the Sixth Form experience and fully develop leadership and communication skills.
