Enrichment opportunities

Alongside the curriculum, enrichment activities help expand your horizons and diversify your personal qualities. You’ll have enrichment lessons on your timetable, mostly on Wednesday afternoons, and tutorial periods with your personal tutor – all designed to enhance and complement your A-Level studies.

You can choose from all kinds of opportunities, to suit your interests and aspirations. Some of them lead to a qualification. You might want to study a new language or take an Open University short course. Or you could learn how to create cordon bleu meals, or take part in the Young Enterprise Scheme. Here are some examples of what’s on offer:

Sixth Form Enrichment

Aspiring Progression Allotment Arts Project
Charity Outreach Extended Project Qualification Events Planning
Fitness Suite Young Enterprise Hoodie Making
Peer Education Project Swimming Support Work Experience
Volunteering opportunities    

You can also contribute to EHS life, gaining the satisfaction of helping others as well as broadening your leadership experience. The opportunities are many and varied – including mentoring younger girls or running clubs for them, organising the Student Council, captaining Houses, or representing the School as Head Girl or Deputy. Many girls choose to serve on the Sixth Form Committee, where roles range from Charity Representative to PR Ambassador to Poet Laureate.

The wider community around the School is another great place to learn life skills, and we’re here to support you with any volunteering that appeals to you. Whether you’re helping out at a local primary school or working with the elderly or less able, you’ll find the time you spend rewarding as well as educational. A vital part of the EHS experience.
