Sport is an integral part of Sixth Form life, enabling all pupils to engage in physical activity on a regular basis. This helps to

not only develop their personal fitness, but also provides an opportunity for pupils to develop many social attributes as well as supporting their mental wellbeing. Every Wednesday afternoon all Sixth Form students

partake in an engaging games afternoon where they can choose activities including basketball, badminton, table tennis and gym. The afternoon also provides training /matches for many of our team sports For a small school we are delighted not only with

our level of success in the local area and beyond, but also pride ourselves on the number of pupils competing on a regular basis. Sixth Form students are actively encouraged to

develop their leadership skills by assisting the PE Department in running many of our lunchtime and after school clubs. This creates a great opportunity for developing a fantastic community feel throughout the school as well as enabling Sixth Form students to gain valuable life experience which will strengthen any potential university or employment applications.

Work Experience To ensure all students are prepared for the world of work and can gain valuable experience and insight into future possible areas, all students in Year 12 undertake a period of work experience during Curriculum Enrichment Week (CEW).

Visiting speakers & citizenship An extensive programme of professional, external speakers will be organised. Topics will be diverse and relevant to post 16 students and will include: ethical and moral issues, politics, personal safety and health.

Duke of Edinburgh’s Award The DofE Scheme gives young people the chance to serve their local community and to gain a sense of achievement. Often students will already have completed their Bronze Award, however, it is possible to have direct entry into the Award at Gold Level. DofE is a non-curricular activity which is greatly valued by employers and universities.

Social Activities In addition to organising social events for the lower school, such as the Christmas Ball, Sixth Form students also get to enjoy a number of events aimed exclusively at them. These include: • Team Building Activities • Foxtrot Excursion • Leavers’ Ball and ceremony.
