Enrichment

  • Sixth Form Outside

During your Sixth Form experience you will have a wide range of enrichment activities to get involved with.  We believe this is not only important for your personal development, but also a fabulous way to enrich your CV and develop new skills.  Enrichment activities take place each week on a Thursday afternoon (we call this Extension Studies).  In addition to this, throughout the academic year a wide range of activities are also planned for our Sixth Formers.

Extension Studies is a time for you to mix together with students from all different courses across Years 12 and 13; it allows you to take up new activities as well as further your skills in areas of particular interest.   The common theme of the activities is that you will extend yourselves beyond your taught lessons.
