Learning Together For The Future

How Will Life in Sixth Form Differ?

Students in the sixth form make an outstanding contribution to the life of the school. The Ecclesbourne School Sixth Form recognises that enrichment activities are fundamental to the holistic development of young people. All Sixth Formers become Prefects and are expected to carry out important duties. There are also elected positions for the Head Boys and Head Girls, House captains and Student Council. Below are some views from our students about the enrichment programme:

"Peer Mentors helped me to relax and make friends in my new form."

"Being a Community Ambassador gives you a real sense of achievement."

"I always hoped to be a House Captain. It is brilliant to work with younger students in all the house events – even better if you win!"
House Captain, Year 13 student

"Subject Mentors enabled me to think about my studies in a different way, they helped me to get GCSE grades that I was proud of."
Year 11 student

"Spoken English demonstrates the importance of having a voice that stands apart from the crowd, not out of requirement, but out of a desire to be individual."
Year 13 student
