The Sixth Form experience . . .
The Woodrush Sixth Form experience is not just about what happens in the classroom. We want to make sure that every student has a range of enrichment and personal development activities that they can participate in around the school and in the wider community.
Some of these opportunities include:
- A bespoke programme of additional academic enrichment qualifications.
- Membership of the Gym and classes at Woodrush Comunity Hub at reduced rates.
- Working as a mentor for children lower down the school.
- Organising and supporting fundraising events for charities like ‘Children in Need’ and ‘Macmillan Cancer Support’.
- Attending University organised courses and open days.
- Completing work experience placements linked to possible career pathways.
- Numerous social outings (theatre, cinema, outdoor activity centres – etc).
- Going on a range of school trips and residentials (including trips to the Houses of Parliament, the Gadget Show, the Clothes Show, a sightseeing tour of London and the biannual trip to New York – etc.)
"Sixth form students contribute fully to the school community, taking an active role, including in providing care for younger students. Their responsible attitudes enable them to develop leadership and employability skills and to increase their self-confidence (Ofsted 2013)."
