Whilst we have very high academic standards, we also recognise that there's more to Sixth Form life than the subjects students study, so we take extra curricular activities very seriously. Our students feel a real sense of achievement and confidence when joining others to enjoy learning and self development beyond the curriculum.
As well as the performing arts and enrichment studies, our students take part in many activities including:
'The Sixth Sense'; writing articles for and publishing a regular sixth form magazine
Variety of clubs run by and for sixth form and some main school students such as:
The Sixth Form Council; which actively contributes to making real decisions about what goes on in the school and getting involved in community projects such as Safer Neighbourhood Youth Citizen Panels.
Debating; with three formal debates throughout the year and many competitions.
The Subject Ambassador System and the Senior Prefect Team; our Year 12 students apply to become Ambassadors on the basis of a job description and Senior Year 13 Prefects are voted for by the whole school. Senior Prefects are trained outside the school in leadership and teamwork skills. The emphasis is on involvement and contribution to the community.
Assemblies: students present assemblies on topics of personal interest.
Student Run Clubs; Our students are very interested in wider issues in their own community. Clubs run by students are: Animal Rights; Green Club; Creative Thinking; Feminist Club; Literary Society; Netball Club; Girls Football Club.
Year 13 Leavers' Ball; which takes place in May
Talent Show; raising money for charity
Carol Singing; raising money for charity
