There are a variety of extra-curricular activities open to students in the Sixth Form including an extensive and relevant enrichment programme encompassing guest speakers, workshops and opportunities to excel beyond the classroom.
Sport, drama and music remain a prominent part of Sixth form life, regardless of which A-Levels you are studying. You can represent your team at sports fixtures, take part in Senior School productions (both on the stage or behind the scenes) or sing in a school choir. Sixth Formers are also encouraged to help in the running or organisation of activities, or even start their own.
Sixth Form life is about taking new opportunities and meeting new people and so joining a new activity, society or mentoring programes is actively encouraged. There is a wealth of activities that all Sixth Formers are encouraged to take a part in and help run, as well as a host of societies that are on offer, for students to belong to.
