Enrichment Sixth Form in Oxford
“Hand-pick a selection of enrichment opportunities that reflect your unique interests, talents, and goals. Allow yourself time to develop new skills, build on existing ones, and most importantly to be yourself” – Ms Bland – Activities Director.
Girls in Sixth Form have a wealth of enrichment opportunities on offer to them from sports clubs to debating and strategic thinking. Involvement is strongly encouraged to allow every girl to develop as a rounded individual.
Girls have a 2-hour slot in their timetable each week for sport. This time promotes positive mental health, well-being, and building relationships. It also presents a dedicated time to switch off from more academic pressures our girls may be facing at certain times in the school year, build new skills and widen social circles. They enjoy a range of activities from paddleboarding to trampolining and swimming to rock climbing.
We also offer the Duke of Edinburgh’s programme to our Sixth Form – more information can be found here.
Being a Sixth Form in Oxford, our enrichment offer enhanced by the multitude of opportunities presented to us by both Universities – Oxford and Oxford Brookes – including lectures, workshops and the opportunity to attend exhibitions amongst other things. It is one of the unique aspects of being so close to such a vibrant and diverse city.
Volunteering and Mentoring
Volunteering and mentoring allow pupils to build vital skills for later in life, promote leadership, develop confidence with public speaking, and improve organisation. Our volunteering and mentoring programme also encourages and promotes relationships throughout the school. This engagement is one of the things that makes Rye Sixth Form in Oxford feel so warming and giving us the real sense of community for which we are known.
All members of the Sixth Form are assigned as a ‘House Mother’ to a younger pupil in their house. Care is taken to match a Sixth Former to a younger pupil with whom they have things in common – this is a handpicked process. The aim of the relationship is to allow our Sixth Form to provide support, advice and guidance when needed to pupils lower down the school.
In the coming year, our new Well Being Prefect will oversee the development of the mentoring scheme with more opportunities for pupils to meet with their mentors.
