Chesterton Sixth Form College

We will ensure all students have access to a challenging and engaging programme of opportunities and support to extend their understanding of their curriculum subjects, as well as access to an exciting and carefully curated enrichment programme to broaden horizons beyond their A-Level courses.

Super-Curricular Offer

Enrichment programme

Chesterton will provide all students with a programme of
exciting enrichment activities, making the most of all that
Cambridge has to offer.

All students will choose an enrichment programme to suit their interests, designed to extend their experience of sixth form outside of their chosen curriculum areas.

We will make the most of our stellar performing arts facilities, as well as our proximity to Cambridge city, links with rowing clubs, museums, galleries and university colleges to offer a truly enriching programme of extra-curricular opportunities.

University preparation

We will provide all students with a comprehensive programme of one to one support in completing university applications in a wide range of specialist areas, run by expert staff.

Support will include

  • One to one academic mentoring from the start of year twelve
  • Trips to university open days
  • Small group sessions with visiting admissions tutors
  • Regular sessions with subject experts to prepare for Oxbridge interviews and entrance exams

Trips and visits

We are committed to providing a range of exciting opportunities for extended visits and travel throughout the sixth form programme.

Some of our intended visits include subject based trips to Europe & the USA; volunteering projects in Uganda; a skiing tour; in addition to trips closer to home: theatre trips & concerts; sporting events; parliament visits; London: museums & galleries.

Community outreach

We look forward to building on our work within the local community by seeking and developing opportunities for sixth form students to volunteer in a range of local institutions, from primary schools to community centres.

Our strong Duke of Edinburgh programme will be extended to include sixth form students.
