Our sixth form students have the opportunity to attend many subject and extracurricular trips. Ranging from West End musicals, subject specific trips such as the Juniper Hall Geography Field Trip, Stratford English trip as well as language exchanges, and the famous New York Trip.
The IB mission is to develop compassionate lifelong learners, this is developed through the Creativity, Action and Service and Service Learning programmes on the IBDP and IBCP respectively. Through these programmes our students are provided with many opportunities to volunteer and run projects in the local community for example; National Citizenship Service, Margate Arts Club and The Zone Youth Club Broadstairs.
Every year we welcome into our sixth form a number of students from abroad. They are often here to combine studying for an internationally recognised qualification with the opportunity to develop their skills in the use of the English language. But they always prove to be a great addition to our community; injecting fresh perspectives into both social and academic activities. There is no doubt that our home-grown sixth formers benefit enormously from the participation of the overseas students.
