Enrichment

Introduction

By the end of Year 13 our students are embarking on their next steps and we want them not only to be academically successful but also well rounded young adults who have much more to offer than just a list of qualifications. We aim for our students to develop their ‘soft skills’ such as teamwork, communication, leadership and presentation skills, which can be the gateway to much success, as well as help to fully prepare them to be a citizen of the world as they move into adulthood.

PSHE

To support our students in developing favourable and competitive characteristics we offer an extensive PSHE programme. This takes place weekly and we organise sessions focused on various areas.

Horizons Programme

An important aspect of our Sixth Form timetable is the ‘Horizons Programme’. Currently this involves various workshops and speakers delivering inspirational messages, leisure activities, exploration of contemporary moral issues and cultural visits. We strongly believe the students should be challenged to go outside of their comfort zone; and should be given the opportunity to engage with a variety of activities as part of their Sixth Form experience. An example of what we offer includes;

Work Experience

A placement organised by the students themselves, in an industry they are interested in. This gives them the opportunity to develop their skills in a range of areas and get an insight into the world of work.

Extra Curricular Activities

The school has an extensive range of extracurricular activities on offer. There are many successful sporting teams students can be involved in, including rugby and football. The drama and music department’s yearly productions are always excellent, with Sixth Formers often taking lead roles. As well as this, there is also the opportunity to achieve the Duke of Edinburgh Award, there are various trips that students can opt to partake in and a range of clubs across subjects which students can engage with.
