Sixth Form Enrichment

Enrichment contributes to our aim to provide a challenging, dynamic and relevant education for all our students. The School’s 10 Year Plan identifies the importance of ‘The Whole Person’ and the Sixth Form Enrichment Programme enhances the curriculum and allows it to be placed in the wider context of the world we live in.

Cheadle Hulme’s enrichment is based on our ‘3 pathways/ cornerstones’ - Academic, Active and Altruistic - which we believe underpin a successful Sixth Form Experience and we encourage students to complete courses in all three areas during their time in the Sixth Form.

Aims

The aim of enrichment is to:

  • ensure the fullest possible development of the academic, cultural, physical, moral, spiritual and social dimension of each student
  • promote integrity and self-respect in each student and develop compassion, tolerance and respect for others
  • enable students to gain the personal skills and confidence to shape their own futures, and those of others around them, in a rapidly changing world
