As you will no doubt be aware, in the current challenging economic climate entry into both university and the job market is extremely competitive.
Therefore students need to gather rounded skills and attributes that set them apart from others in addition to their standard academic achievements.
We strive to ensure all students develop their interpersonal skills and offer a wide ranging enrichment programme.
Our students collectively give-back to the school and to the local community. Our sixth formers provide in-lesson support to students in Years 7, 8 and 9 and always provide assistance at school events such as parents’ evenings and open evenings. We have a group of students who take part in the ICT in the community project where they assist local pensioners with their internet use. Through the World Wide Volunteers programme our students have undertaken projects with a wide range of charitable organisations including Victim Support, Safe Haven, Compass Kidz, Haringey Shed, Hillingdon Hospital, Rainbow Trust, Hillingdon Play Association and DASH (Learning Disabilities Charity).
ORGANISING CHARITY EVENTS
Sixth form students take a lead role organising events such as the annual Halloween Ball,
Night in Asia and fundraising events for Children in Need, Comic Relief and Sports Relief.
• School Productions
• Sixth form students always have key roles both performing and back-stage.
Sixth form students have their own debate club which meet once per week. In 2013 our students won the first ever Hillingdon Post-16 debating competition.
SPORT & FITNESS
Sixth form students have access to a wide range of fitness equipment in the gym. Students can take a membership at a subsidised fee of just £5 for the whole year. Students have use of the on-site sports centre, GOALS.
Students undertake a variety of trips related to their subjects. For example in 2013 some of our A level History students visited Auschwitz and the A Level Art students visited Paris. In recent years our students have also visited Dublin and Madrid. Closer to home students have visited the Design Museum, the Houses of Parliament, the Old Bailey, the Globe Theatre and the IMAX Cinema.
Our Year 13 students organise a summer leaver’s ball. This is always a terrific and popular event which is attended by most students and a large number of staff.
