Enrichment & Extra-Curricular

Making you stand out from the crowd...

More than ever, employers and higher education admissions offices are differentiating between potential candidates, based on what else they do outside of their academic qualifications.

Extra-Curricular activities are crucial in developing intra and interpersonal skills and to provide students with real-life experience. Our Sixth Form students are actively encouraged to be role models to younger students, to take ownership of their learning and to develop the skills necessary for higher-level study or employment.

The College Leadership Team act as the voice of the Sixth Form students. Every member of this
group has been selected for their potential to provide great service to their fellow students and to the
College as a whole. Students are encouraged to express their opinions, queries and issues to any member
of the Leadership Team, who will then discuss them with the Heads of Sixth Form in their weekly meetings.
The Head Boy and Head Girl (and deputies) represent the College in wider contexts. The Leadership Team
is also the face of the Sixth Form for public events and they attend a range of meetings and forums,
including Student Voice, to represent the College in student matters. The Leadership Team has represented
the College at events such as the Launch of the 400th Anniversary of King James Bible and at political
forums held by Simon Hughes, one of the College’s Trustees. The students also lead the annual Charity
Appeal. 


CoachBright - Sixth Form students are trained to be mentors for Year 9 students, helping in them in
subject areas where they are struggling or having difficulties. We have also begun a fruitful partnership
with Future Frontiers, an organisation that provides our students with an academic mentor from a range of
professional organisations and employers in The City. This is aimed at Year 12 students and it provides
them with an opportunity to meet regularly with a person who can support them with work experience,
academic support, careers planning and CV writing. 


Our Mediation Team, comprising specially trained Year 12 & 13 students, who actively work towards
reducing conflict in our College and its community, have received many prestigious awards. The scheme,
run in conjunction with the Southwark Mediation Service, has become a hugely popular personal and
educational experience for the huge numbers of students who apply successfully each year.
