Enrichment Opportunities

Enrichment Opportunities

We really want our sixth form students to contribute to 原理图ool life. 的re are many opportunities for students to develop their leadership skills in addition to just getting out of their comfort zones, developing their self-confidence, finding new interests and forming new friendships.

 

六年级 Clubs

的re are a wide range of extra-curricular activities and clubs which are available in our whole 原理图ool enrichment timetable.

As well as this our sixth form students run their own clubs. What is on offer changes every year, but some previous examples have been a debate club, crochet club, literature society, medical society and geocaching club.

 

Competitions

We have had teams in the sixth form for sports, 科学, 经济学, 数学, debating and design competitions.

 

Community / Volunteering

We encourage our students to volunteer in community projects such as raising awareness of homelessness, mental health and supporting community activities in 伯克郡沃金厄姆.

We are happy to support them volunteering on a weekly basis as long as their timetables are clear at that time.

 

Trips and Visits

的re are many trips and visits including field and residential trips for geography, 生物学, textiles and languages.

Students have attended specialist lectures in London or at nearby universities in chemistry, 数学, 历史, 业务, 经济学, psychology and sociology. 

We send students to the Languages at Work Day hosted by Wellington College and our economists enjoy their visits to Eton College to listen to high profile economists and 业务 leaders.

的 English department 组织 trips to the theatre and the art and textiles departments 组织 visits to art galleries and exhibitions.

 

Classroom Attachment

Year 12 and 13 students can spend one hour a week in lessons helping younger students.

Often sixth formers choose a subject they particularly enjoyed at GCSE and find it very rewarding inspiring the younger girls.

Sixth formers are also welcome to take part in the sixth form peer tutoring 原理图eme in the Learning Link, where they can listen to students read or help them master their 一次表.
