Our daily chapter time programme has been designed to support students to transition successfully into adulthood. Students will use this period of time to not only develop key transferrable skills, but also learn about key issues that are a crucial part of the 16-19 study programme, helping them to become a well-rounded, tolerant and resilient individual who is fully prepared for life in modern Britain.
TED is an organisation that seeks to spread ideas from the worlds' more inspired free thinkers, to change attitudes and lives across cultures; creating deeper understanding of the world and its developments.
TED talks are short videos of powerful and inspiring talks on a vast array of subject areas in over 100 languages. Students are encouraged to challenge their ideas and discuss them on a more academic platform, helping them to develop their communication skills and prepare them for higher level discussion and thought for university, or beyond.
Our PSHE curriculum for Sixth Form is drawn from the PSHE Education Programme of Study which can be found here:
The programme covers a broad range of issues from the modern world including relationships, consent, contraception and parenthood, discrimination and mental, physical and sexual wellbeing. It is tailored to the needs of the year group who, through a student voice questionnaire, prioritise what they feel they need to learn about.
THINK and GROW rich programme
Success at A Level, BTEC National or CACHE depends on students habits, routines, attitudes and approaches to study. It is their behaviours, not their intelligence, that determine their results.
THINK and GROW rich is a mind-set program that will help improve students' success. Over the course of the year, students will engage in sessions that will seek to develop them in 'The Four As'. Students who are successful:
- have a clear vision (ASPIRATIONS)
- develop a positive mental attitude (ATTITUDE)
- put the relevant systems in place (ACTIONS)
- practise their skills in order to progress forward (ADVANCE)
The purpose of our careers programme is to make sure that students leave us prepared for the next step on their journey, whether that be to higher education or employment. We aim to raise aspirations and promote social mobility, ensuring that all students have access to the best opportunities.
The programme provides students with the knowledge and skills they need to be ‘life ready learners’ and achieve in the wider world. We are actively working to meet all eight of the Gatsby Benchmarks with many, already being achieved.
