Enrichment & Personal Development
Sixth Form students can further explore their chosen career during our annual careers fair; this is an event attended by a high number of professionals from many sectors, both academic and vocational. All students also have access to an independent Careers Advisor to discuss their options in more detail.
Additional qualifications and awards
All students have the opportunity to study for additional qualifications that enhance their education, for example, First Aid qualifications, Sports Leaders Awards, Student Leadership Awards, UCATs and BMAT exams with Medify.
All Sixth Form students can apply to become part of the student leadership team. Students will have a whole Academy role and learn key leadership and management skills. As role models for other Academy students, also organise a wide range of charitable events.
We offer a wide range of opportunities for the personal development of each student. We aim to ensure that all students graduate from our Sixth Form with the skills essential for success whether in further study or the world of work. Personal development sessions focus on supporting students with university applications and applying for apprenticeships and jobs. Practice interviews, personal statements, UCAS applications are a few of the topics covered. Students also receive seminars on key youth issues so they have a better understanding of how to stay safe when away from home and how to manage their personal finances.
