In the Sixth Form, your learning will extend far beyond the classroom. The skills you learn in our dedicated Enrichment Programme will support your studies and well-being, as well as help to prepare you for life after school.
The programme is complementary to your A Level studies and includes a host of activities, seminars and events, including many that you will be involved in organising.
Throughout the year the Head of Sixth Form organises a series of enrichment afternoons, which include seminars, courses and conferences. Subjects discussed include:
- Presentation Skills
- Mental and Physical Health
- Meditation and Yoga
- Mindfulness course
- Interview skills
- Cookery course
- Resilience Training
- Safe Driving
- Independent Learning
- Productivity and Persuasiveness
There are also Careers Lunches
which happen periodically throughout the term. The Head of Sixth Form invites experts from various industries to have a formal lunch with Sixth Formers who are interesting in studying law, medicine, psychology and engineering, to mention a few.
Sixth Formers take part in a Wellbeing Conference once a year. This conference is designed to help students understand the real benefits of wellbeing in young people in the short and long term, encouraging them to make this a part of their lives while still at Culford, and when they move on to university and employment.
Halfway through their Lower Sixth year, students can apply to be Prefects. Prefects chosen include Head Boy and Girl, Deputy Head Boy and Girl, Head of Houses and House Captains. With the privilege of being a prefect, comes increased responsibility, as these students represent the school at Open Days and other key events.
As well as Prefect roles, all Sixth Formers are encouraged to develop leadership skills by running clubs and societies for other pupils and by mentoring pupils lower down the school. There are also many opportunities to lead the running of charity events such as fashion shows and concerts. The Headmaster’s Leadership Awards recognise significant individual and group leadership.
