Sixth Form Life Skills Programme

As part of our PSHEE and enrichment programme, we aim to prepare our girls for university and the world of work with a wide variety of ‘life skills’.

As a school Sixth Form, we have a unique opportunity to enable the girls to build their confidence and communication skills through a wide range of leadership roles and opportunities which they will be able to utilise and take with them throughout their lives.

The programme is carried out in small discussion groups, supplemented by outside speakers, general debates, videos and visits out of school.

The PSHEE programme includes:

  • Critical thinking skills workshop run in association with universities
  • Sex & relationship education with a nurse
  • Interview skills
  • Road safety awareness
  • Drug/alcohol safety and awareness
  • UCAS help and guidance
  • University finance
  • Study skills
  • Aspirations
  • Mindfulness
  • Mental health awareness 
  • Careers psychometrics
  • National citizen service


After the January examination period Year 12 students have a dedicated Life Skills Day to help prepare them for the future. 

Each student will participate in a range of activities including basic car maintenance, financial management for University and beyond, Consent. By working in small groups and with specially trained guest speakers, students will extend their experience and feel ready to face the challenge of life after Sixth Form.
