Enrichment

It is our responsibility to develop each individual to the point that they feel able to fulfil their potential in whatever field that may be. By the time they leave us, we want all students to feel ready for the world beyond, prepared to lead and inspire others.”

We offer all students the chance to deepen and enrich their studies, to go above and beyond just gaining qualifications.

Students are given the chance to personalise their education through our enrichment programme, designed to challenge individuals to extend their thinking, their skills and their intellect so that they can engage in debate or discussion at interview and show the real potential that universities and employers seek.

The enrichment programme has time allocated each week in the sixth form timetable giving students the opportunity and space to develop those skills that have been identified as vital to achieving success in adult life. Some activities extend beyond the sixth form campus and into school life at Saint Gregory’s, allowing our students to mentor younger peers and guide them to success.

Our enrichment programme evolves year-on-year as we work together with our sixth form leaders to ensure it is engaging, fun and relevant, designed with the interests of the current cohort in mind.

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
  • On Track to Bath University
  • Access to Bristol University
  • The New Sixth Press Team
  • Book Club
