Enrichment Opportunities - Sixth Form
Enrichment is an important and exciting opportunity for young adults within our Sixth Form. It allows you to engage in a non-academic based curriculum and develop your interests and your skills. These skills will then help you to become a well-rounded, unique and employable individual who can leave our Sixth Form as an outgoing and confident young adult. Students in Year 12 are expected to complete a minimum of 30 hours of enrichment throughout the academic year and these hours are recorded in a personal log that each student will receive at the start of Year 12. The options students choose to take will help them to develop both as a learner and as a person, whilst also enabling them to develop skills that are linked to their career goals. School-based opportunities include standing for election to the Student Council and applying to join the Sixth Form Ambassador Team, mentoring younger students and supporting teaching departments.
Beyond these opportunities, there are Drama and Music productions each year, sports teams and clubs, trips abroad, subject visits, guest speakers, university trips and a wide variety of special interest clubs. At Chenderit Debate Club, there is training for experts and beginners alike: Chenderit is one of only a few from the state sector that competes on a national level and has an excellent reputation. Chenderit Sixth Formers take part in many local and national competitions in all sorts of fields, from poetry to sport, and from Model United Nations to essay writing. There is a thriving Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme and we actively encourage our students to dedicate their time to this. Some of our most successful activities are those that have been initiated by students and if you have an idea and the will to make it happen, then Chenderit is the place to make your mark.
