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 and senior student roles; others may be weekly, such as sporting opportunities. We also have a fully equipped gym in the form of the Paula Radcliffe Community Sports Centre, which has a reduced rate membership for students. These activities will enhance their 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. Departments will often host guest speakers, organise trips into industry (with potential work experience links), and some offer overseas visits.
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: involvement is free*.
Here are some of the enrichment opportunities taking place this year:
