What will my timetable look like?

Timetables differ depending on the course or courses that you have applied for.
You are not expected to be in the sixth form full time like school. However, you
are expected to work independently in your free time; whether that is in the
sixth form Independent Learning Centre (ILC) or at home.

 

What happens at lunchtime?

We have a canteen on site which is open from 8am in the morning for breakfast,
through to 1.30pm for lunch. We also have a café on site which is open until
2.30pm where you can purchase snacks, hot drinks and Frappuccino’s. You can
also leave site for lunch; there is a Costa, KFC and other shops close by.

 

What social activities, sports and clubs can I get involved in?

We have a wide range of Project You+ activities like yoga, film club, dance, guitar
lessons, meditation and others. We also have a fully equipped gym, a sixth form
football team and we are looking to start a basketball team also. You can also
join our debating society, student council, take part in the Duke of Edinburgh
Award or apply to become a Student Ambassador.
We are also hoping to be able to offer trips again. In previous years, students
have had the opportunity to visit London, New York and Russia to name a few.
