Enrichment

Alongside high-quality teaching and learning in their chosen subjects, students also take part in our unique enrichment programme.

During Y12, students complete modules in the following areas:

  • Work Experience (one week)
  • University visit days (at least two days)
  • School or Community Volunteering (at least five hours)
  • Extra-curricular hobby or skill (at least ten hours)
  • Independent reading and research (at least five hours)

Students will be supported through these modules during Tutor Time and Study Time.

For work experience, we engage with over 50 well-known local and multinational employers to provide high-quality placements in a wide variety of industry sectors: engineering & construction, sports & leisure, hospitality & catering, legal & financial, business administration and education. Visit our website for more details and links to all Trust partner websites.

During Year 13, students will be supported in applying for university, apprenticeships or employment. As well as being incredibly beneficial for personal development, these activities also support successful applications.

 

next gen leaders

Next Gen Leaders, Sustainabag Team have raised £170 through the sales of their bags, which they have made through upcycling old clothes. The money will be donated to Sheffield Women's Aid. This money will fund the travel for 85 women’s journeys to employment courses and education centres. As well as giving them the opportunity for exploration of their city.

“What a fantastic project and thank you so much for thinking of us here at Sheffield Women’s Aid and wanting to support us, your generosity will make such an incredible difference to us.” Janet Goodinson, Head of Operations at Sheffield Womens Aid (March 2024)

 

 

 

Y12 students complete a research project during their form times and study periods.  They design, research and create posters to showcase their research in to a topic of their choice, then showcase them in their form groups to peers and their form tutor. Each year we get amazing posters, and the top 3 posters are awarded with a voucher.

Wear it green

In May 2023, our Sixth Form students hosted a ‘Wear it Green Day’ and a bake sale in support of Mental Health Awareness Week. They raised money for Sheffield Mind and helped to raise awareness by wearing green and selling green ribbons.
