In addition to the Federation Harris Experience Advanced opportunities, screenings and virtual workshops, all our students are regularly involved in local, community or interest-specific sessions facilitated by external and internal professionals. For example:

As a student in our sixth form, you will be given the opportunity to take part in a range of enrichment activities. 


Examples of pathways provision

We encourage and expand our students’ interests through stranded careers and pathways provision. 

  • Behind Every Kick: to develop individuals holistically and focus on their ambitions, opportunities and self-presentation (eight students involved long-term, with 20+ involved in several sessions)
  • Home Cooked: 16 students have been trained and employed as research analysts, using their skills to assess local community priorities and support across the academic year and beyond in the Godwin Lawson Foundation grants and project decisions

Extended Project Qualification

The Level 3 Extended Project allows learners to study a topic of their choice in great depth, extending their learning in the chosen area of study and developing highly desirable skills which will help prepare students for either University study or the world of work.  

This is an AS qualification so and students receive UCAS points. The Extended Project gives students an opportunity to manage and conduct their own research and investigate areas of interest about which they are passionate. Find out more.
