Enrichment & Partnerships
All sixth form students have a dedicated enrichment slot in their timetable once a fortnight. This is a compulsory element of the timetable. Some sessions are delivered to the whole cohort; others involve working in smaller groups on a carousel basis. Sessions may be led by members of school staff or by external organisations. Students are welcome to suggest topics they would like to see addressed in the enrichment programme and are also welcome to plan and deliver sessions for their peers or for younger year groups. This type of student involvement and leadership is something we actively encourage.
Along with tutorial time and weekly assemblies, enrichment sessions are used to address key issues in terms of post-18 options, employability, and various aspects of PSHE. Our broad pastoral programme includes relationships and sex education, drug and alcohol awareness, financial education and other life skills. The fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs are explored both in pastoral time and in subject lessons as appropriate.
We have close partnerships with various external organisation, which add significant value to our sixth form offer. Please explore the tabs opposite for more information.
