Supplementary Curriculum

The additional learning opportunities that are available to students provide them with the opportunity to complete supplementary courses, either linked to their current subjects or in areas of interest or challenge.

Many of the course opportunities are delivered by the school, such as the Extended Project Qualification, an exam board accredited, research-based course, that provides students with the experience of writing a mini dissertation of their choice and presenting their findings to an accreditation panel.

For students wanting to extend and expand their knowledge, they are also able to access a huge database of Open University and ‘MOOC’s, free accreditable courses covering thousands of topics, that provide a broad base of information, enhancing and broadening their studies and interests.

Time spent outside normal studies is put to good use through a range of subject societies. Modelled on the types of societies found in all universities they provide students with the prospect of participating in subject specific activities, some competition based, but many purely for the enrichment opportunities they offer.
