Students at Northwood Sixth Form take part in a wide range of non-qualification activities which support them in developing a range of “soft skills”.
Unique to Northwood School, all Northwood Sixth Formers are working towards their Northwood Diploma. This offers Sixth Form Students a wealth of enrichment experiences which develop their independence and resilience. Crucially it allows them to acquire skills which they will need beyond the classroom and in the world of work.
The diploma is made up of four strands:
- Community Service (Citizens, community volunteering, prefect duties, running clubs/enrichment)
- Intellectual Curiosity (wider reading, reading from reading lists, attending lectures, attending Oxbridge enrichment, Electives, Future Learn Courses)
- Work Experience / career preparation (work experience, university trips, summer courses, work, CV writing)
- Extra curricular (sports, music, dance/drama or any other regular club/special interest)
