Enrichment and Extra- Curricular

We want our students to enjoy their :me at The

Ecclesbourne School Sixth Form and leave us with

experiences, skills and quali:es required to make a posi:ve

contribu:on to wider society.

Every Sixth Form student is keenly aware of their

responsibility to make a posi:ve contribu:on to the wider

school or local community. Students are given the

opportunity to donate their :me as Community

Ambassadors, Peer Mentors, Subject Mentors, Learning

Mentors, Prefects and volunteers.

Our House System provides ample opportuni:es for

students to develop crucial inter-­‐personal skills. As a

member of a house, Sixth Form students can par:cipate in

music, debates, drama and sport. House Captains are

expected to lead younger students in house events and

even write and direct their own ‘House Play’.

The arts play a crucial role in the holis:c development of

young people. Sixth Form students can par:cipate in a

variety of musical groups from swing band through to

choirs and whole school musical events. Without Sixth Form

par:cipa:on our whole school produc:ons would be a liWle

less vibrant.

Ac:ve promo:on in sport and the promo:on of a healthy

lifestyle is essen:al to what we are trying to achieve as a

Sixth Form. The old expression a sound mind in a sound

body -­‐ is as true to today as when it was coined in the

classical world. Sixth Form students are able to use the

Fitness Suite at selected points in the school day and ajer

school. Moreover, Sixth Form students are encouraged to

par:cipate in House Sport which combines fun and healthy

compe::on in equal measure! Many students take their

hobbies to the next level and represent the Sixth Form in

spor:ng compe::ons against other Sixth Forms or colleges.

In 2019, our U19 Netball team reached the Na:onal Netball

Finals. Many students con:nue to par:cipate in sport

outside of school with some members of the Sixth Form

collec:ng Na:onal and Interna:onal honours in the last

calendar year.
