Into The Sixth 2013
In addition, there exists a comprehensive programme of fixtures with other schools in a variety of sports, many of which occur on Saturdays. The expectation is that those selected will be available as and when required. Whilst special consideration will be given to individual cases where excellence is apparent, opting out of individual sports is not normally acceptable.
What else should I do outside the classroom? Involvement in extra-curricular activities is vital, and not just because it looks good on a university application form. We expect you to take part in or, even better, to organise activities. This will broaden your experience and give you an opportunity to display initiative, exercise responsibility and lead younger students. You will benefit from this and so will the school. In recent years such activities have included: BISMARCK Modelling Club Chess Club CCF Community Service Dance Drama Fencing Film Society Music War Games and Fantasy Society
Board games Christian Union Charities Debating and Public Speaking Duke of Edinburgh Award Helping in local schools History Literary Society Trampolining Work Experience and Job Shadowing
What do I wear? There is a formal dress code which includes a suit and the school tie for boys and a suit and formal top for girls. You will be given details of the dress code later.
