Sixth Form Enrichment
The new enrichment and extension programme offers a combination of structure and flexibility, taught courses and self-study, in-house and off-site options. The aim is to meet the needs of every student by offering a core of essential information and skills, whilst also giving each individual time to explore their own interests and career goals.
Students are encouraged to follow a Pathway that ties their core subjects, enrichment, extension and co-curricular activities into a coherent whole. The Pathways currently available are:
- Elite Sport
- Enterprise & Finance
- Medical Sciences
- Modern Languages
A team of teaching staff and representatives from each of these career fields works with the students to create bespoke packages of enrichment activities, designed to maximise their readiness for employment or further study in their chosen field.
The taught components of each pathway will include:
- Study Skills & Independent Learning
- Critical Thinking
- Skills for the Workplace
- Careers and UCAS
The optional components could include:
- Internships with local employers
- Joining a Massive Open Online Course
- Voluntary work & outreach
- Participation in the Arts Award
- Courses at other educational institutions
These are just some suggestions and each student’s programme is designed individually for their needs.
