Enrichment

Enrichment Overview

We measure success not just in terms of academic results, but also in the contributions that Sixth Formers make within school, and further afield. Our enrichment programme gives students the freedom to make choices and balance work commitments with other interests.

Many of our Sixth Form students enjoy enrichment courses in addition to their A level subjects. These courses are designed to enhance skills and knowledge, develop strong leadership skills and encourage a real sense of community values.

We also run a diverse range of activities including our sector leading Monmouth Science Initiative with Cardiff University, award winning entries in the Young Enterprise Scheme and national engineering competitions.

What is Sixth Form Enrichment?
