Welcome to the world of activities and events which will ensure you are both enjoying your sixth form life and also gaining experience and valuable expertise outside the classroom. You will take up the opportunities we present and develop areas of expertise as well as learning new skills and personal attributes. Don’t just do something you are already confident about, try something new!

We are really keen for you to take the lead and develop the GEAR enrichment programme yourselves, so please don’t hesitate to come and see us with ideas for any activity you want to develop.

Also, remember, if you are doing any extra courses or clubs or voluntary activities outside of school, bring the details in to your form tutor.  They can sign off hours if they think that it is a valid GEAR activity.
