Charities Day – this will be organised via the Student Union, Lakeview Voice and tutor groups. Various activities will take place during one specific day to be arranged. All proceeds will go to a nominated charity.

 

Debating club – Debating matters because your ideas and opinions matter. Debates are worth having. Topics will involve issues that have an impact on the world. They affect the way in which we understand and relate to those around us. Now is the time to take ideas seriously. Challenge yourself! Get involved with a broad range of contemporary real-world scientific, political and cultural debates.

There may be opportunity to continue onto your Gold award or, numbers permitting, perhaps try DofE for the first time. Completing the award at any level is always an achievement, with more and more universities and employers looking upon successful awardees favourably with the knowledge that they are able to offer commitment, responsibility and perseverance.

 

 

Health awareness – Various speakers will be invited in to discuss health issues of specific relevance to 16-19 year olds.

Sixth Form Voice – One or two representatives from each of the tutor groups meet with Mrs Fyles once every half term to discuss issues relating to Chilwell Sixth Form as we strive to improve facilities and experiences.

 

Mentoring – This is an opportunity which allows you to receive training in order to provide academic support to pupils lower down the school.
