Our students benefit from our enrichment program that is focused on developing the key characteristics needed to thrive in life. These are: creative, articulate, resilient, empathetic, reflective and studious. The CARERS program is designed to develop the skills that are necessary for success in any career and also develop essential life skills. In addition, we offer a wide range of trips from one-day subject conferences in London to three-week expeditions working with our partner schools in Uganda. We also run a very popular Sixth Form trip to New York.
Throughout the year we run several ‘Big Activity Days’ where all students are off timetable for the day and engage in fun and productive workshops/ sessions such as Team Building, The Enterprise Challenge, Healthy Relationships, Motivational speakers, Sex Education, London Treasure Hunt and much more.
We also offer The EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) which allows students a chance to research their own area of academic interest and to write it up as a dissertation, with the help of a supervisor and a series of focused research skills seminars. Alternatively, students may opt to produce an artifact, perhaps a piece of art or textiles, a DVD, CD or even a stage production.
There are a number of reasons why our students choose to study for an EPQ; it earns students as many UCAS points as an AS Level; it allows students to develop an area of academic interest outside the constraints of examination subjects, and encourages development in research and writing skills, which is invaluable practice for the girls’ future learning at university.
