The ethos of the Sixth Form encourages the development of confidence, responsible attitudes and self-discipline. This enables the Sixth Form, and the whole school, to operate as a community and to prepare students for adult life.
Each student will be given the opportunity to take on responsibility and become a leader in their own right. Self-discipline and a desire to push themselves to achieve their best are important, but will be matched step for step by committed staff who take pride in seeing their students come fully into their own, as independently minded and critically appreciative young people, with an understanding of the world around them and the part that they can play in it.
Sixth Formers can hold positions of responsibility within the School Council; establish new clubs and activities for younger pupils; organise social or charitable events to raise funds, and gain team-working and problem-solving skills by running Young Enterprise companies.
Sixth Form students also lead the fundraising activities for Project 3580 which supports the Waterloo Schools Charity and the nearby Kissi Town refugee camp near Freetown in Sierra Leone. As students are currently not able to travel to Sierra Leone, the Sixth Form are now fundraising for our World Challenge Expedition to Uganda in 2016, which will combine experiencing a foreign culture with a humanitarian project.
