Kirkbie Kendal Sixth Form Prospectus

A place to excel and achieve. In my opinion a fantastic environment from which to take your first steps into the real world. Year 13 Student 10 Extra-Curricular and Enrichment Activities We believe that it is vital for all students to extend their experiences beyond the subjects they have decided to take. Enrichment activities take place through timetabled lessons and within study periods. The objective of enrichment and extra curricular activities is to give students the opportunity to develop their skills and learning; to try real life experiences that will go a long way to enhancing their CV and UCAS applications. These include: Senior Students contribute to the school with leadership roles and in addition will organise Sixth Form events such as the Yearbook, Leavers’ Ball and Christmas Social. • Young Enterprise • Public Speaking • Literacy and numeracy work with younger students • Buddying and peer mentoring • Work experience, including primary school experience • Voluntary work within the local community • School sports teams • Sports activities (e.g. gym usage) • National competitions • Senior Students • Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award • A variety of extra-curricular clubs including Art, Charity, Chess and other clubs • Preparing for the working world • British Sign Language • Teaching English as a Foreign Language
