Develop leadership skills
As senior members of the school, Sixth Formers are encouraged to take an active part in the life of BSG. There are many opportunities to develop leadership and team working skills. This may be as a House Prefect, a Form Prefect to junior pupils, a leader of a club or society, a member of a music or sports group, a PA to your form tutor or perhaps even as Head Girl or House Captain.
The House system gives students at BSG a real sense of community and belonging and the opportunity to take on new responsibilities. Every Sixth Form student belongs to one of six Houses. The House system provides many opportunities for students to work with younger pupils in the school, as well as to organise and support a range of House activities and events.
Be part of the wider community
There is a real emphasis on making a commitment to the wider community whether through Work in the Community opportunities, taking part in National Citizen Service, helping with our Christmas Old Age Pensioners’ Party or volunteering as part of Duke of Edinburgh and the Lions Club award schemes.
We maintain links with Bournemouth School Sixth Form through a programme of very lively debates throughout the year and joint societies such as the Politics Society.
There are also many visits in the UK to theatres, universities, field study centres and museums as well as cultural visits and ski trips abroad.
Join a club or society
At BSG Sixth Form we are fortunate to have teachers and support staff who volunteer their time to provide an extensive range of extra-curricular activities. This summary guide shows you the wide provision offered to our students.
Our clubs and activities can be broken down into 6 different categories:
– Performing Arts
– PE and Sport
– Crafts and Games
– World and Culture
Clubs generally run at lunchtimes, but depending on the type of activity can be after school (such as sports matches) or at weekends (such as expeditions).
Though most of our club and activities provision is free of charge, a few may charge a fee which is normally used to pay for membership of official organisations or for materials. Please enquire with the staff member responsible to find out about this.
