At Hinchingbrooke we believe that all of our students should extend and develop their skills beyond A Level studies. University admissions tutors and employers are increasingly looking for rounded individuals who manage their time between academic study and their other interests.
Our enrichment programme offers students a core of Lifestyle Choice talks throughout the year, but just as importantly it gives students the freedom to explore their own interests and to experience some new ones through clubs/ sports and volunteering. We expect all Year 12 students to take part in the enrichment programme.
Visiting Speakers Programme
Each term there will be several talks put on, generally in Form time; it may be compulsory for all or certain parts of Year 12 to attend as will be announced throughout the year. Speakers cover a diverse range of topics and are from a range of disciplines. See some of our past talks/events under the Sixth Form News page. We also have a strong programme of health talks along with careers and UCAS information talks and conferences.
Community Action Service at Hinchingbrooke School (CAS24)
Sixth form students at Hinchingbrooke School are expected to make a contribution to the life of the school through the CAS 24 programme. This entails committing a minimum of 24 hours during Year 12 to either community work (Hinchingbrooke or the wider community), physical activity or service to the school.
· Service to subject departments in curriculum time
· Service to subject departments in extra curricular activity
· Mentoring younger students
· Service to Hinchingbrooke House and grounds
· Service in the community
· Recreational physical activity – Wednesday afternoon programme
· Fit for study – induction into fitness suite and following a personal exercise programme
· Training to represent Hinchingbrooke School in sporting activity
We ask that all students take part in a club of their choosing, for example, a book/ film club, music, sport, drama, debating society, current affairs or chess. We want students to bring their interests into school and share them with others. If you have an idea, please see Mr Fordham or Mrs Edwards.
