All of our students are encouraged to engage in the wider elements of the school and sixth form community.
By offering time to support others, students gain skills and experience in areas not covered by pure subject study, making it also personally rewarding. There are numerous ways in which this can be achieved. Supporting lower school activities, representing the sixth form as ambassadors or on groups, or becoming specialists in mental health or anti- bullying, or representing the school in sports and other academic competitions and teams are all excellent examples of how students can contribute to the community.
Student representatives are voted onto the Sixth Form Strategic Group by their peers, influencing the direction of the sixth form and recommending changes that should be made. Student-led groups focusing on areas of importance and interest such as wellbeing, and LGBT+ awareness, ensure that the topics important to students are at the forefront of school and student awareness and allow us to adapt our provision responsively.
