Sixth Form students are able to engage with their younger counterparts in all aspects of school life. The house system of sporting, expressive art and other competitions is mainly organised by our House Captains. Sixth Form students work as mentors across a number of subjects and year groups. They support younger students in class and in dedicated 1:1 mentor sessions. Mentors are given guidance to help them to support younger students.

Students also have the opportunity to take on leadership responsibities through appling for a subject specific Foundation Governors Scholarship.  Successful applicants become subject ambassadors helping to support and promote thier subject area and earn a financial reward to help support their studies.

Elections are held for the Sixth Form student leaders, which organises many social events, including the Leavers´ Ball. Representatives of the committee help in the appointment of new staff and meet with governors to discuss large projects within the Sixth Form. The Council also helps to organise whole school fundraising projects.
