Enrichment

Enrichment is all about developing your personal and social skills and broadening your experiences at The Sixth Form alongside your academic qualifications.

As a student at The Sixth Form you will have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of enrichment activities. These are provided to ensure that you leave our Sixth Form with more
than just an excellent grade profile. The face-to-face clubs and our new B6 Enrich virtual programmes are designed to help you stand out from the crowd and become fully equipped for life
after The Sixth Form. The activities we offer allow you to gain skills in new areas, develop existing skills, make new friends and take part in a range of leisure activities either on your own or
with a group of friends.

There are many varied activities available for you to choose as an enrichment option. Many of the clubs and activities take place on a Wednesday afternoon and run throughout the academic year. Other activities such as First Aid and Natural Born Leaders run as short courses or one off sessions. You may be interested in pursuing an interest outside of your academic studies or expanding skills which will support your career path. Why not get involved and find out how they can be beneficial to you now and in your future.

VIRTUAL ENRICHMENT CHALLENGES

This is a new initiative to allow students to engage with enrichment activities from a distance. Every half term, the departments will release challenges for students to engage or enjoy on their own or from a distance with others. Students can participate in challenges set by any department and therefore can widen their skill set, satisfy their curiosity, and broaden their knowledge outside of their own areas of study. These challenges will be released via links on the student portal each half term and will also be available via the departments’ own platforms such as Instagram, Microsoft Teams and Google classrooms.

BECOME TECH SAVVY

NEW FOR 2021:

We are introducing a number of short courses in which you can gain certificates in programmes such as Excel and other Microsoft packages. Being computer literate is an essential skill you will need to progress into the work place or university.

SPORT VIRTUAL CHALLENGES

E Sports Enrichment:

Three Teams:

  • League of Legends (5 players)
  • Overwatch (6 players)
  • Rocket League (3 players)

For our new Champs format, the tournament will now be spread over 12 months. Winter qualifiers will consist of a large group stage where teams will face a variety of opponents and aim to get as many points as possible throughout the season. Teams will then be split into divisions in the Spring season depending on their position in the leader board from the Winter qualifiers.

Teams will be chosen via an internal tournament so watch out for entry instructions.
