Electives and opportunities
We offer a wide range of extracurricular clubs and activities through our electives programme. Electives are staff-led extra-curricular clubs. These will strengthen your personal statement and are often linked to the area of study you wish to complete at university. Sixth form students have the opportunity to support with an elective run for the lower school, for example dance, politics and music. Alternatively, students can set up their own elective for their peers based on their area of interest.
Finally, we have a set of opportunities for you to participate in. This is where you volunteer your time to support others, which could be through reading with year 7s, peer mentoring or visiting local care homes for example. These opportunities will be regularly advertised in tutor time, so please get involved.
We encourage and support all of our student to complete work experience. If you have some free time in your timetable and would like to complete some work experience or volunteering in this time please speak to your form tutor. All work experience and volunteering during sixth form time will need to be approved by the Assistant Principal (Mrs Barker).
When not in use for lessons or electives, sixth form students also have access to the Jane Austen College fitness suite. A reminder that the fitness suite is a teaching space and therefore all equipment used should be put away sensibly; failure to do so will result in a ban from using these facilities. If you are interested in using the fitness suite, please contact Mr Atkins, head of PE at firstname.lastname@example.org to organise an induction.
