Personal development should be an exciting part of the sixth form programme.  Here at St Edward's, along with our student body, we have created a diverse prgoramme that reflects student interests, needs and aspirations.

Our range of activities include:

  • Career experience - to support your UCAS application, career choice and encourage the development of a range of skills
  • Extended project qualification (EPQ) - to deepen your interest in or love of a subject whilst broadening your portfolio of qualifications. The taught element of this course includes external lectures from Southampton University
  • Personal enquiry - examining the big questions in life through Philosophy
  • Sixth form debates
  • External speakers - on a range of topics: politics, health, driving, life skills, finance, Citizenship Programme, public speaking
  • Mindfulness
  • National Citizen Service (NCS) - Many of our students complete this very worthwhile scheme which is recommended by Universities and employers. We are now recognised as an NCS Champion School.
  • UCAS/careers tutorial - support for application to a range of universities including Russell Group and Oxbridge, specialist colleges, top apprenticeships and training programmes
  • Peer mentoring
  • Sixth Form Senior Student Leadership Team
  • Drama productions, orchestra, end of year sixth form review, retreats, battle of the bands and regular sport
  • Enrichment - Students have 2 hours each fortnight to take part in a wide range of enrichment activities, such as outdoor educations, sports and first aid courses.

Your all round development is important to us.
