Enrichment is a vital part of sixth form life. In order to compete for jobs and university places after sixth form, students need to demonstrate that they have a range of skills as well as an excellent academic record. This enrichment programme gives students a diverse range of choices that will help them to make informed decisions about their lives and give them a sense of belonging.
