    This is for students who want to continue with D of E from school or start from the beginning with the qualification.

     

    This involves volunteering with the Bolton Lads Club.  You will attend the club on a weekly basis and must be willing to attend a residential course during October half term. You will be working with and mentoring children from the local area.

     

    Whilst this is open to everyone it will be particularly useful for those taking Business/Economics.  The students involved will set up and run a small company, raising money for charities.

     

     

    This is a professionally delivered course which leads to a national qualification.  It is an introduction to communicating with people who are hearing impaired and may be of a particular interest to students who are considering a career in a caring profession. 

     

    This involves helping out at the Bolton Dementia group help to care for and help older people with dementia to enjoy simple games and activities.

    There is a Tuesday afternoon group and also a Wednesday afternoon group.

     The Sixth Form is involved in a joint project with Age Concern which consists of hosting a social afternoon twice a month for a group of about 10 local elderly people.  This takes place on the first and third Wednesday of each month from 1.30 until 4.15 and there is a wide range of activities followed by afternoon tea.   Sixth Form volunteers are required to help and support our elderly visitors and to generally befriend and socialize with them.  If you opt for this activity, you will be expected to stay until 4.15 on the meeting afternoons but you will be free on the non-meeting afternoons.

     

     

     This option provides the opportunity for anyone who is interested in teaching as a career to get some invaluable "hands-on" experience in one of our local primary schools.  Those who take part work with a particular class of pupils, usually for the whole year.

     

    For one period a week a Sixth Former is paired with a pupil, attends their lesson with them and, under the guidance of the teacher, and helps them with their work.  This session may be at any time during the week when the Sixth Former is free and then the Wednesday afternoon session becomes their free time instead.  As far as possible the Sixth Former is paired according to their own strengths so a linguist will work in the language lesson, a scientist in a science lesson and so on. 

     

     

    The girls’ netball team play fixtures in an U.19’s league against other colleges and schools and the matches take place on Wednesday afternoons, usually in conjunction with the boys’ football fixtures.  The first practice/trials will be notified on the bulletin.

     

    The 1st, 2nd and 3rd XI football teams play in the U.19s colleges and Sixth Forms league.  You will be notified about the date and time of the team trials; your place on this subject is dependent on your trial.

     

    This option takes place at Rossendale Ski Slope on Wednesday afternoons.  Priority on this option is given to first-time skiers going on the Sixth Form skiing holiday but there may also be room for others who are just interested in giving it a go.

    This unit builds on the areas studied at AS Level. You will be taught by two specialists within the department, so you will have two teachers for this unit.

You will also explore beliefs about life after death and complete a study of religious language.
