The most distinctive features of Sixth Form education are choice and personal responsibility. Even with A-Levels, Enrichment, Tutorials and PSHE, students will be left with an amount of free time in which to develop their studies and will have access to a much wider range of peripheral activities than are available in the Lower School.
In such a competitive world, students need more than A-Level grades alone in order to stand out in a job or university application, therefore it is hoped that Sixth Formers will engage themselves in the extra-curricular opportunities on offer. As well as improving their ‘transferable’ skills, involvement in the broader curriculum will be enjoyable and will allow students to develop new friendships.
During the past few years, the following societies/activities have been active within the Sixth Form. Details are circulated during term 1 of Year 12. If Sixth Formers wish to introduce a new idea or club we welcome this and they are encouraged to approach the relevant Sixth Form Head of Year. Recent activities include the following:
