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 through 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 such as Young Enterprise, Model United Nations and World Challenge. Many of these activities place an emphasis on developing important skills for life. Sixth Form students also take responsibility and leadership roles in our busy programme of House competitions.
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 and trips.
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.
I believe a Newcastle-under-Lyme School student should be a busy and happy one. Making the most of the opportunities that the co-curricular life of the school presents is a great way to become that busy, happy student.
