'Give back' programme
During their time in Sixth Form, students will be expected to play an active role in the school and community. Called ‘Give Back’, these sessions are designed to play to students' strengths and help enrich the experiences of children lower in the school and within the larger community. In the past, students have helped in the subject they excel most in, perhaps helping a small group of students improve their reading or helping to run an art class Masterclass or extra curricular club.
The extra curricular clubs sixth form students can support in can be seen below:
As part of the programme, students are also encouraged to log and reflect on their experiences each week, using the booklet below.
A list of job roles and descriptions can be found below:
Some students have volunteered in the Trust’s primary schools and pre-schools, too. The work done during 'Give Back' really enhances UCAS applications to university, giving students valuable experience and an understanding about how institutions work. We will do everything we can to accommodate your ideas for Give Back.
The ‘personal statement’ aspect of applying to university benefits enormously from initiatives like ‘Give Back’ and one we actively encourage.
