We believe that success is not only measured by the grades you achieve but by the skills and attributes that you gain along the way.

Yr 12 CPR Trained Certificates

To support this process, we offer a broad and vibrant enrichment programme.

As part of the “contract” of joining our Sixth Form we insist that every student should utilise the opportunities available, gain wider experiences and create their own enrichment portfolio which of course will complement their academic studies.

How it works:

We make full use of our partnership with UNIFROG to enable students to plan and record their enrichment activities under “seven-star student competencies” which are looked for by universities and employers:

  • Independence   IMG_4530

  • Leadership   

  • Team working   

  • Resilience   

  • Analysis   

  • Literacy   

  • Numeracy

Over time students will therefore build a portfolio which will allow them to evidence the competencies gained.

We offer a broad range of enrichment opportunities as well as encouraging students to seek out their own.
