Life at Sharnbrook Sixth Form is all about new challenges, and our enrichment programme is intended to offer new experiences and build on existing interests.
There are a variety of activities on offer, many of which take place during the school day, such as subject ambassadors; others may be weekly or after school, such as sporting opportunities. These activities will enhance student experience at Sharnbrook, as well as develop valuable skills for the future.
Many of our student’s volunteer within departments to ‘put something back’ by assisting in lessons lower down the school, for example. Here they have the chance to improve their confidence and communication skills, whilst consolidating the learning of others.
Sixth form is as much about the social side as it is about learning. We offer a vast range of activities taking place during lunchtime, non-contact periods and after school.
Here are some of the enrichment opportunities taking place this year:
Toe-by-Toe coaching, running the weekly TV broadcast, peer mentoring sports teams, subject ambassador roles and supporting in lessons, PSHE ambassadors, helping at school events (e.g. open evening), form captains, mock trials, Duke of Edinburgh award mentor, Sixth Form only Richard Horricks memorial football tournament, Soul band, dance ambassador, Anti-bullying training, mentoring in modern foreign languages, debating club, Christian Union.
We also aim to develop employability skills and interview techniques via our Futures programme.
