Enrichment and Extra Curricular Activities
At Sir John Cass Sixth Form College we encourage students to partake in the extra-curricular timetable which we believe works alongside the academic timetable an enriches the students educational experience.
Community Service / Volunteering
Sir John Cass Sixth Form College runs an extensive Community Service programme in which students are given opportunities to participate in a number of projects both inside and outside of school.
At Sir John Cass Sixth Form College we encourage students to ‘give something back’ to the local community. We run a programme alongside World Wide Volunteering in which students are given the opportunity to develop the skills required to be a successful volunteer before gaining the support required to find a suitable placement. In addition, we have outside links set up with Toynbee Hall, Oxford House, The Bengali Football Association, Stepney Farm and The Ragged School Museum to name a few.
We have an ambassador team of over eighty students across Years 12 and 13. The ambassadors participate in a number of activities within school, including Parents’ Evenings, Parents’ Forums, Open Evenings and School Tours, playing an integral part in the set up and running of such events. This is seen as a very prestigious role amongst students and staff, and has given all involved a number of opportunities to gain valuable experiences in preparation for university, apprenticeships or employment.
The Enrichment Programme at Sir John Cass Sixth Form College forms a core part of the Sixth Form curriculum throughout the academic year.
The enrichment programme provides a range of activities designed to extend your education and personal growth beyond the academic. Enrichment also helps support students’ career aspirations by providing the opportunity for them to gain relevant experience. In addition, the programme helps students develop new interests and have fun.
In order to get the most out of the programme, students are encouraged to participate in a range of activities across the year, both in group situations and as individuals.
These additional experiences enhance the impression students give to future employers and are extremely valuable when applying to higher education establishments and on a UCAS application.
Activities include: rocket making, horse riding, archery, sewing, driving test theory, interview skills, sports etc.
Clubs and Societies
There are a number of clubs and societies students can get involved with, all aimed to stimulate the educational experience. The most popular include the Debate Society, The Equality Group, The Feminist Society, Amnesty International to name a few.
