Life in the sixth form
The Daventry Sixth Form is committed to providing a wealth of enrichment opportunities. These opportunities are important because they help to broaden your skill base and often help students to develop a sense of responsibility whilst being highly enjoyable.
Many students pursue their love of a subject by providing classroom support to a key stage three class or supporting in our Primary phases as reading mentors or classroom support helpers. Other opportunities include supporting students with needs in The Pod and working as a mentor for students who need a positive role model.
Students have the opportunity to participate in trips abroad including to Paris and the annual Iganga Conference in Uganda. Students can also participate in The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme with the opportunity to take part in Gold, Silver or Bronze expeditions. These trips and experiences are important in expanding student’s horizons.
Our learners take the responsibility in leading charity events within the school. Recent events include a teacher vs teacher football match and a GBBO style bake off! We are open to innovative new ideas from students for how we can raise money to support our local community, national and international worthy causes.
Student voice and student leadership are key components of our shared provision. There are Sixth Form leadership roles at both campuses that are involved in steering the direction of the Sixth Form in terms of facilities and social events.
