Enrichment Programme

Academic success is critical to your future, however we want students to leave St Aloysius' College Sixth Form with more than just a set of outstanding academic results. We ensure our students access enriching  opportunities which aid both their personal development and employability. Increasingly employers and universities are seeking more than just academic qualifications; they are looking for interesting young people who can demonstrate a wide range of skills and knowledge.

Our Enrichment Programme allows students to dedicate one afternoon per week to a range of activities, such as;

  • Job and University interview practice
  • Employability workshops (e.g CV writing)
  • Board games sessions
  • Exercise (e.g Yoga classes or football games)
  • Team building challenges
  • Student run events (e.g fundraisers)
  • Social events (e.g bowling or GoApe trips)
  • Cooking on a University Budget workshops
  • Money Matters sessions
  • First Aid training

We also have weekly Breakfast Talks from industry experts, which this year has included professionals from Google, Arsenal FC, NHS England, Glaxo Smith Kline, Sky, and the Cabinet Office, with job roles including architects, doctors, engineers, brokers,
