We work with NCS (National Citizen Service) who provide a variety of experiences to support personal development, social action and volunteering.
The sixth form leadership team (Parliament representatives) organise other enrichment/social activities and will raise funds to ensure everyone can get involved.
Students may also study and EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) as part of their programme of study. Students are required to complete a project on a topic of their choice. The project can be in the form of an essay or report or an artefact e.g. a musical composition, piece of artwork or dramatic project (although these must be backed up with a written report). Depending on the grade achieved, students can gain between 8 - 28 UCAS points.
As part of the Altwood community sixth form students are expected to adhere to a code of conduct which will support their learning and progress.
