    Enrichment

    In addition to their academic lives we also want our sixth form students to develop their character by participating in a range of extra-curricular experiences in the arts, sport and culture,  which will help them become well rounded balanced adults.

    Sixth formers are involved in a wide range of enrichment activities. These include:

    • volunteering  at a local home for the elderly, helping to run activities;
    • work experience with architectural companies, design companies, Bart’s cancer institute, scientific research at King’s College  and even at the Bank of England ;
    • tutoring Year 11 students afterschool in a variety of subjects.(for which they receive payment);
    • mentoring  year 8 student in English and maths;
    • in-class support for younger students.

    Sixth Form students also have opportunities to develop their leadership through:  the school student leadership programme; the school house system; sports leadership programmes and the ‘Budding Brunels’ programme  (a schools programme for students typically in the first year of their Level 3 studies who are interested in pursuing a professional career within the construction and built environment industry)

    Students also take part in numerous organised workshops and trips including:

    • summer schools at universities including the Oxbridge Support Programme and UCL Summer school;
    • Safe Drive;
    • the UCAS convention in Surrey;
    • various departmental trips eg the science trip to Geneva;

    Character building courses such as Inner Drive, trip to Brighton and many more.
