Our Sixth Form students play an active role in the life of the school, for example as Prefects they are relied upon to support staff in the smooth running of the school. They may also be appointed Heads of School, Deputies, Senior Prefects and House Captains responsible for organising and enthusing pupils in a range of inter-House competitions.
Students are timetabled several private study lessons. These are regarded as opportunities for quiet, concentrated work and Year 12 students are required to spend a proportion of their private study lessons under supervision in the School Library. Year 13 students have access to other study areas within the Cloisters and the Losinga Building.
Sixth Form students are offered a wide range of opportunities; recent examples include a week’s work experience in Denmark (9 places this year); representing the UK in the Model European Parliament (Vilnius, Lithuania in 2013); The Debating Society; local employment opportunities; the National Volunteer Programme and representing the school at civic events.
There are three Games lessons every Monday afternoon and there is always an element of choice in the activities on offer.
