Enrichment in Sixth Form

Life in all it's fullness



Enrichment is for everyone - you do not need to be studying the subject to join in!  It is important that all students maximise their potential inside and outside of the classroom.  Our diverse enrichment programme will help you to gain numerous life skills, develop your interests and try out new things.

By taking part in enrichment, you will enhance your learning, add a dimension to your CV, make new friends and immerse yourself in Sixth Form life.  Below are just some of the opportunities available to you.

Duke of Edinburgh

DofE is about developing transferable skills in teamwork, communication and empowering and challenging young people to have a positive impact on their local community. If you are brand new to DofE, then please spend some time browsing to decide if it’s right for you.  DofE is designed to be challenging, most students gain a lot from taking part and have a lot of fun!

Gumley House will support Expeditions, and provide advice on the other sections, but students are responsible for organising their own skills, volunteering, physical, and (for Gold) residential sections. The DofE Award is optional and you have until your 25th birthday to complete all four (five for Gold) sections.
