The Sixth Form at Gosfield - PowerPoint
Shared by: a2302339
The Sixth Form at Gosfield Gosfield Sixth Form puts its students first by delivering specialist teaching in small groups. The Sixth Form Curriculum is about more than exams… …even though they are at the centre of our thinking. The Curriculum When we designed the Sixth Form Curriculum we wanted to make sure that we provided an all round experience that included new adventures as well as solid learning. We wanted our students to have… time for study (lots!)… in class and in private time for study… in depth and with the right resources time with their teachers… without being restricted to appointment times or office hours This is Lloyd Upsdell, Double Gold medallist at the Sydney paralympics, with his tutor, Peter Harder. time to take responsibility… as prefects and mentors for younger students time for stretch and challenge… as part of the Extension group as part of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme as part of the Young Enterprise Scheme time for travel… and time for a stylish social life. We also wanted to provide the ‘Wow!’ factor for our students. What could we do to make our Sixth Form more attractive than ‘college’? Well… the staff at Gosfield have the time to think up interesting things for you to do and because there are no discipline issues, they are willing to go the extra mile for you. For example… Politics students will meet with well known politicians; this year they have visited Parliament with their MP Brooks Newmark and have had the opportunity to attend Defence Briefings with Dr. Liam Fox MP." History students will have met the leaders in South African history and will have had access to the world’s leading experts for help in their coursework. Geography students will do field work on the Isle of Arran. Whatever subjects they study, our students will have the overwhelming benefit that… They will be taught and tutored by people they know and who know (and like!) them individually. They will not have to shout to be heard as only one of 2000 students in a large college. With AS exams taking place within less than a year - this matters. At Gosfield… …we have time for you.
