Skills for Life

Our Sixth Form students have more independence than our Senior School students and they are encouraged to become role models for younger pupils, whether this be as a prefect, taking part in school events or simply demonstrating strong values and exemplary behaviour around School. This is a fantastic opportunity for them to develop independence and responsibility, alongside the skills needed to succeed in the next phase of their lives.

Form tutors offer skill development sessions during Wellbeing/RSE, encouraging Sixth Formers to explore a range of career pathways. Our students are glorious individuals and we are committed to supporting every student to find the right path for them. Skills like cover letter writing, interviewing effectively, presenting confidently and preparing a CV are just some of the many important softer skills essential for success in life. When completing the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), students enhance their critical thinking, research and writing skills, all valued by higher education and employers alike. Our Wellbeing/RSE sessions also provide practical advice on student finance and managing money, time management and study skills, and managing anxiety and stress.
