The activities continue into Key Stage 5 with greater provision for students to attend lectures from industry professionals and alumni guest speakers. Activities enhance subject knowledge in art, mathematics, engineering, medicine and veterinary.

Students are also encouraged to enter national competitions during their Super-Curricular period.

Push Yourself To Go Further

In conjunction with the timetabled Super-Curricular activities, Key Stage 5 students can join additional after-school activities.

Super Curricular lessons have helped me develop knowledge and practical skills that aren’t necessarily covered in AS or A level subject specifications.

These lessons have helped prepare me for university in widening my understanding of subject areas to help when I start my degree. For example, in our Medicine group we got the chance to learn how to suture which is great for me in my aspirations of going into Medicine.
