Sixth Form Life

Enrichment

We believe that Sixth Form students should be provided with many opportunities to develop their skills, knowledge and ideas beyond the classroom. Our Enrichment Programme has been carefully planned to give you chances to help you pursue other interests and qualifications in conjunction with your main courses. Previous examples of courses/opportunities which have been included in our programme are:

  • Arts Award

  • First Aid

  • Sport (football, netball, use of the gym etc)

  • Duke of Edinburgh Award

  • Cooking on a Budget

  • Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)

  • Sailing

  • Peer Mentoring

  • Life Guard Instructor training

  • Work Experience opportunities (e.g teaching)

Visits

Sixth Form students will be invited to take part in a number of exciting visits, both overseas and within the UK. University masterclasses and residentials, as well as trips to the Birmingham HE Convention and interview skills days will form a crucial part of a student’s experience as they prepare for life beyond the Sixth Form. A European city visit also forms part of the Spring term for students in both Year 12 and Year 13. Recent destinations have included Prague and Paris.
