Enrichment

Before leaving Sixth Form and moving on to the next step of your career, it is important for us to maximise your potential.

We intend to do this through our enrichment programme. This will challenge and stretch you to make you the ‘stand out candidate’ for universities and future employers.

 All students in the Sixth Form will be offered the opportunity to get involved with enrichment activities. Enrichment complements academic studies but also allows students to flourish outside the classroom and focus on essential skills. Enrichment also gives students the opportunity to:

  • Impress universities in their personal statement
  • Stand out from the rest in a job application
  • Gain work experience essential to future career
  • Build confidence
  • Continue participation in a hobby or sport
  • Try something completely different
  • Develop confidence and skills such as leadership and team-working

 Opportunities are open to all students to experience and investigate a variety of Future Pathways, from Medicine, Veterinary Science or Dentistry or universities such as OxBridge, to Apprenticeships, Gap Years and the world of work.

We will support you in any way we can to independently lead on a project you are passionate about which can be formalised into the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).  Other opportunities we can offer in the Sixth Form include standing for Head Boy or Girl, Head of STEM, Humanities, Art or Sports, allowing you to be a young leader in your chosen field.  In addition, in the past there have been the chance to take part in charity events, fundraising and leading assemblies for raising awareness on subjects you are passionate about, to having guest speakers in to speak to the student body.
