Sixth Form Opportunities
Students have many opportunities to demonstrate their leadership both through the senior prefect system and the highly successful peer mentoring programme.
Sixth Form prefects have a significant role within the school organising a range of events such the Jeans for Genes Day, as well as a host of fundraising activities for charities such as Cancer Research, Save the Children and The Royal British Legion. Prefects also support with Parents' evenings, Open Evenings and are trained as student ambassador guides. In addition, a team of Year 13 Head Prefects are elected annually.
We operate a highly successful Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme. Participating post-16 students can undertake their Gold Award, taking advantage of the many exciting opportunities required to satisfy the four criteria. The school year culminates in an expedition to the Isle of Skye in the last week of the summer term. Over 140 students currently participate in the award throughout the three levels, with many now completing Bronze through to Gold.
