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


College is much more than just your academic qualifications. At The Sixth Form Bolton, we believe in developing the whole person as we want you to achieve your full potential in and out of the classroom. As a B6 student, you will have the opportunity to take part in our extensive enrichment programme, this includes a wide range of career and life-enhancing activities, clubs and societies.

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.


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.


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.
