Sixth Form students at Newcastle-under-Lyme School can manage their co-curricular programme to fit their own interests, to develop their leadership skills and to complement their academic studies.
By the end of the Sixth Form, they will have an academic and co-curricular profile to be proud of, and one which will stand out and showcase their skills and aptitudes to employers and universities.
In our school environment, our Sixth Form students benefit by undertaking leadership roles in co-curricular activities including leading across the performing arts, coaching and mentoring younger pupils, and managing House and team events.
The co-curricular programme for our Sixth Form students is varied, well-resourced and expertly led by our staff. In addition to Senior School activities such as Sports Teams, CCF, Scouts, Performing Arts and DofE, students can also undertake activities as varied as Model United Nations and World Challenge. Many of these activities place an emphasis on developing crucial skills that equip students with the tools they will need for life beyond NULS.
Alongside lessons, our teachers appreciate the value of enriching the Sixth Form curriculum through participation in subject challenges, activity days, educational visits and longer overseas expeditions, trips and sports tours.
For students joining our Sixth Form from other schools, co-curricular activities present the perfect opportunity to re-engage with familiar interests and to embark on something new.
We believe a Newcastle-under-Lyme School student should be a busy and happy one. Taking full advantage of the opportunities that the co-curricular life of the school presents is a great way to enhance every student's experience and enjoyment of their time at school.
