Beyond the Curriculum
Enrichment remains an important part of school life at Woodmansterne when students enter sixth form, and we understand that there is an even greater diversity of interest post-16. Right the way through the school we have tried to ensure that learning goes beyond the immediate classroom environment. We believe that school is a springboard to wider learning and make every effort to ensure that our students have a host of learning memories to take with them when they leave us at the end of their school journey.
All students will participate in weekly enrichment. Be it by volunteering in the local community, pursuing enrichment projects or participating in clubs, we want all students to have access to opportunities to push themselves beyond their comfort zones and explore new interests and strengths. Our enrichment programme is interleaved with careers and further education opportunities, offering students the chance to link the present to the future. As an all-through school we also place great emphasis on students becoming community leaders, supporting younger students through mentoring, running clubs and academic tutoring.
Woodmansterne Sixth Form continues to place great value on the contribution trips and visits can make in broadening horizons and perspectives. Students will be able to pursue and complete the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme whilst in the Sixth Form and will also have access to a range of subject specific trips both within London and beyond. As part of our careers and support for students beyond the Sixth Form, we continue to seek opportunities for students to visit Universities, ensuring that students can explore their next steps thoroughly.
