Form time, Assemblies and Citizenship

All students are required to attend all registration form periods and assemblies, and to follow a Citizenship programme. This is delivered through a combination of form-time sessions and fortnightly special lessons, which include a range of lessons, lectures, talks and other experiences. Within this programme are sessions devoted to helping students to develop their study skills and to help and advise them with university or employment applications. They are also given sessions to stimulate their knowledge and thinking on a wide range of topics of direct relevance to this age group, including health issues and driving safety.


Students are also encouraged to maintain a healthy lifestyle and to develop their individual fitness or to play team games with a wide range of sports and activities from which to choose. This means that they must attend fortnightly sport lessons. Students who wish to represent the School will take part in rugby, football or netball each Wednesday afternoon.

Sports and activities on offer can include: football; rugby; cricket; tennis; badminton; table-tennis; weight-training; basketball; circuit-training; netball.

Other Opportunities

In addition to sport, we also offer opportunities for students to join the Combined Cadet Force (CCF) and participate in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. Students are also able to engage in charity work, voluntary work or work experience.
