Wider Opportunities

There are many opportunities for students to enjoy activities beyond academic study and we expect them to take advantage of these. There is also the expectation that they become involved in our extensive community service programme, where they are able to make a valued contribution to the school or local community.

We are committed to developing students’ broader education and invite a range of visiting speakers throughout the year to talk to students about wider social, political and cultural issues. Our enrichment programme is considerable and includes such diverse activities as:

  • Extended Project Qualification
  • Duke of Edinburgh Award
  • World Challenge
  • Debating Society
  • Sports Leader Award
  • Ashlyns’ Project

Sixth-form students have an important role to play in student voice and leadership, and can apply to become a house captain or school prefect; they are also able to make contributions through the Sixth-Form executive or to nominate themselves for the position of Head Boy or Head Girl.
