Sixth Form Pathways
Preparing students for their chosen futures….
In addition to A Level study, Caterham Sixth Form students can take advantage of our unique Sixth Form Pathways programme which combines the school’s EDGE programme, prepared in collaboration with leading UK and global firms, with a unique Pathways programme, a dedicated time each week in which the content is tailored to support the specific requirements of each individual student.
EDGE stands for Explore, Develop, Grow, Evolve and is a combination of online and offline tasks which allow its participants to develop a skillset that helps pupils both now and in the future. An online platform full of resources and information is supported by sessions which run throughout the first term of the Lower Sixth and is a mixture of visiting speakers, discussion and practical activities. The course has been designed to develop the crucial skills our pupils need to thrive both during and beyond their time at school. Topics include personal impact & brand, presenting yourself on online, networking, public speaking skills and project management.
In the second and third terms of the Sixth Form Pathways programme, students will be divided into groups to enable them to follow the “pathway” best suited to their ambitions when they leave the Sixth Form. Students will have access to a vast range of enrichment activities and courses tailored to their individual requirements. For example, students considering an arts-based undergraduate programme such as a conservatoire or architecture degree, will be able to use the time and facilities to develop their portfolios. Students considering degree apprenticeships will learn skills around job applications and employability and students applying to Oxbridge will be able to practice exam technique and carry out subject-based enrichment, with the ongoing support of our specialist enrichment tutors.
