Life in the Sixth Form encompasses more than academic study. Our students are offered a range of opportunities and experiences to complement and enrich their academic work, allowing them to develop the qualities and skills for personal growth and to enhance their prospects in employment and Higher Education.
Tytherington School has an extensive range of extracurricular activities and Sixth Form students are an intrinsic part of their success. Students can continue to pursue their interests in sport, drama, music and community action. In addition students are expected to make use of some of their study periods to participate in activities to broaden their experiences and interests. Students may spend time on activities organised independently or those organised by our specialist staff. Students may, to name but a few, choose to challenge their preconceptions in Philosophy and Politics discussions, set up their own limited company in the highly successful Young Enterprise scheme, enhance their leadership and communication skills by striving for the Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award, or simply let off steam on the football or hockey pitch.
The Sixth Form experience is also enhanced through a number of Enrichment Days held throughout the school year. These days aim to provide students with information and experiences that are directly relevant to young adults. Covering areas such as healthy lifestyles, career opportunities, stress management, staying safe on the road and budget management, Enrichment Days aim to help prepare our students for the challenges and pleasures of independent living.
