Life skills programme

Unlock your future

Life Skills Programme.

Covering topics like financial planning, first aid and drug awareness, these sessions give pupils vital skills they will be able to call upon in life after Woodhouse Grove.

Every Sixth Form pupil takes part in these fortnightly sessions, though some are delivered to the whole year group and others are more bespoke or elective – specific to career fields.

Explore your future fully.

It’s not just our teaching that’ll help you work out who you want to be.

Join a sports team. Be part of an international tour. Do DofE. Play in music groups. Our range of co-curricular activities help you explore your potential fully (and learn some life lessons that can’t be taught in classrooms).

With your own Sixth Form Centre, complete with common room, quiet workspaces and a café, even the environment is designed to help you prepare for independence.

Pathway Tutorial Programme.

To help our students make their dream for the future a reality, tutor groups are organised by future career aspirations and led by a tutor with specialist knowledge.

The Pathway Tutorial Programme

To help our students make their dream for the future a reality, tutor groups are formed according to their career aspirations. Each group is led by a Form Tutor with specialist knowledge in that field. Forms are a mix of Y12 and Y13 pupils, to give students insight into a diverse, enriching range of perspectives.

Our approach means form periods are filled with guest speakers and discussions on the issues relevant our students’ interests. Ultimately, these weekly lessons provide rare and invaluable insight into their future career path, informing their studies and preparing them for interviews and the workplace.

A Sixth Form experience enhanced with regular guest speakers, academic reviews and co-curricular opportunities.

Rolling Programme

We encourage all students to get involved in the wide range of co-curricular activities on offer. Sport, music, House activities – it’s their chance to develop leadership and other skills. Pupils can also sign up for academic extension programmes, such as the Chemistry Olympiad.

Weekly Assemblies not only cover moral and developmental issues, but also enhance our Tutorial Programme. Guest speakers will talk about topics relevant to all career paths – for example, “The Importance of Networking in the Workplace”. This content is then contextualized for each career field in tutor group discussions.

Every half term, our Sixth Form Team carries out one-to-one academic reviews with students. These help keep pupils on track academically, ensuring they get the most out of their chosen Pathway Programme, and let us respond to any change in future aspirations.
