Sixth Form Enrichment Programme
Overview of the Sixth Form Enrichment Programme
Our Sixth Form Enrichment Programme is designed to promote the skills needed to succeed in everyday life, develops “soft skills” that employers and universities look for, while also giving students the opportunity to find out more about their interests and develop cultural capital. In meeting this aim, we offer an exciting range of enrichment activities which students can be involved in.
The core areas for the Sixth Form Enrichment Programme encompass academic excellence, work-related learning, community participation, and personal development. Examples within these areas include voluntary work at local primary schools and care homes, activities such as sport, arts, societies, and work experience
What the Sixth Form Enrichment Programme Involves
Sixth Form Enrichment is part of the extra-curricular activities that students can choose to do beyond their A Level subjects and the normal requirements of their academic life in Sixth Form. Taking part in enrichment, and additional extra-curricular, activities helps to develop skills that will prepare students for life and the world of work.
Sixth Form Enrichment is core part of the Sixth Form Extra Programme and all students in Year 12 and Year 13 have one hour per week of compulsory enrichment on their timetables. Enrichment options typically run in three blocks of 10 weeks. The availability of individual enrichment blocks in each block may vary.
How you will benefit from the Sixth Form Enrichment?
The additional opportunities offered by the Sixth Form Enrichment Programme will extend students’ education and personal growth whilst helping students to pursue their own areas of interest and strengths. Enrichment provides evidence of how a student has a wide array of skills and achievements beyond their subject grades. This can look good on applications when students apply for higher education, jobs or apprenticeships. Transferable skills learnt throughout the programme may include self-confidence, leadership skills, commitment, self-motivation and good time-management.
