Sixth Form life isn’t just about the subjects you study; there are lots of other enrichment projects you can get involved with.
Being involved with extra-curricular activities gives you the chance to make friends, have fun, develop new skills, complement your academic studies and really get stuck in to sixth form life. Furthermore, Universities and employers place a lot of value on enrichment activities, so being involved can benefit your future too by enhancing your CV and university application.
