We offer students a broad range of enrichment opportunities that takes place on Wednesday afternoon each week.
This helps to ensure that students leave us not only with excellent academic results but also as well-rounded young people equipped with the skills to succeed in an ever-changing world. The sessions support attendance calculations and are a powerful addition to UCAS or apprenticeship applications. Students choose the enrichment opportunity which suits them and fits with their interests. They may be able to experience a range of enrichment throughout the year, depending on the length of the enrichment course opted for. Our enrichment courses give students the chance to work with different members of the Sixth Form student cohort and therefore provides further important social networking opportunities.
We also offer students the chance to complete the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award, which is designed to challenge young people to attain good standards of achievement and endeavour in a wide range of activities.
The opportunity to spend four weeks abroad with Camps International is another way students can learn some of the core life skills which include team building, resilience, confidence, community spirit and how to grasp and learn from adventure. We offer a range of other opportunities, extra qualifications and work experiences which will develop these key skills, and students will find out about these as they study with us.
The ability to balance all aspects of work with enrichment opportunities is a key attribute of any successful Sixth Form student. Our students are supported to manage this, balancing their studies with the exploration of their interests and passions outside of the classroom.
