Our enrichment programme is designed to support student wellbeing, help develop transferable skills such as leadership and teamwork, give back to the school/local community, and increase employability. All students can use Wednesday afternoons and/or other allotted time within the week to enjoy one of the many enriching opportunities on offer, including:

  • Sports and fitness, including rugby, netball, football and badminton
  • Young Enterprise
  • Lesson helper scheme
  • The Umbrella Society
  • Sports Leaders
  • Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)
  • Drama productions
  • Duke of Edinburgh Award
  • Gardening club

It is important that students recognise that Post-16 education is about more than just the qualifications they achieve, and the Edgbarrow Sixth Form team will track and support all elements of a Study Programme.

Operation Wallacea

We offer our students the opportunity to take part in a significant overseas expedition. No matter which exotic destination is chosen, this is a challenging and rewarding experience that helps to develop important life skills and knowledge of forest/wildlife conservation, reef systems and marine research. As well as being personally enriching, this experience is superb for the students’ CV or university application.
