We offer an extensive enrichment programme to our Sixth Form students. This enables them to develop a wide range of key skills ready for Higher Education and employment. All students have Personal Development lessons which cover key topics such as financial capability, independent living and post-18 career planning.
Students complete an hour a week of Sixth Form Service through activities such as supporting younger students in subject lessons, being a school listener or mentor, working with the SEN department, being a librarian or supporting an extra-curricular lunchtime club in an area they are interested in.
Those interested in developing their leadership skills can apply to be a Senior Prefect and in Year 13 they have the opportunity to apply to be Head Boy or Girl, their deputies or a Senior Ambassador, representing the school at local community events and working with the rest of the school community as lead students.
Throughout the year both the curriculum and our enrichment programme offer opportunities to develop and enhance learning outside the classroom. This includes activities such as our Year 12 collaboration Induction day delivered by Northumbria University, A Level trips to London, the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, Whitby and Harlow Carr Gardens. International trips to places, including Auschwitz, New York, Cern and Iceland. We believe that this rich variety of opportunities helps to create confident and successful students who are ready for the next stage in their lives.
