Sixth Form Extra Curricular

We have an extremely active social and extra-curricular programme. Throughout the year, Sixth Form students are required to help to organise charity events, such as the 24-hour Gosfield School Indoor Football Marathon and the Senior Prom. Students are also encouraged to volunteer to assist with extra-curricular activities and sports fixtures for our younger pupils.

We offer a range of extra-curricular activities which are tailored to our Sixth Form students including Food Hygiene and First Aid. All Sixth Form students are ambassadors for the school, as Senior Prefects or House Captains and acting as role models for our younger pupils. There are also opportunities for students to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh at Bronze, Silver and Gold level. Additionally, we offer a variety of orienteering and outdoor camping craft activities. Bi-annually, our Sixth Form students enjoy an exciting three-week overseas expedition. In 2023, students enjoyed an amazing expedition to Cambodia.

We believe strongly in a whole school ethos and many Sixth Form students choose to assist our younger Prep school pupils with reading and Forest School. We encourage our Year 12 students to participate in Work Experience in the summer term, following their examinations.

Ivy House and Gosfield Diploma

The Gosfield diploma

The Gosfield diploma is an opportunity for students to showcase that they are are outstanding in their school and personal development.

A student has to evidence commitment to their personal and academic development in the following areas:

  • Social community
  • Physical activity/ creative skills
  • Creative communication and leadership
  • Intellectual and emotional resilience

Students build up a portfolio of evidence for each of these areas.

The Ivy House Award

The Ivy House Award brings life-changing personal and professional development to students aged 16-18. Providing clarity at a crucial time, it will give students the knowledge and skills normally only available to a tiny percentage of senior executives, at a time when it can make all the difference. The Award will support students to develop the confidence they need to step up and take ownership of their future – and stay on track, no matter what happens in their lives. The award works through 8 different key areas of personal development in which the students have to be reflective of their own strengths, areas for development, goals and aspirations. This is part of our Compulsory Curriculum in Sixth Form and is an integral part of our careers program.

Social Events

Our students benefit from an enriching programme of social events, from dinner parties to the Spring Dance and Prom. We encourage our Sixth Form students to be involved in the organisation of these and other events throughout the year.
