Student Life

The Sixth Form experience is enhanced by taking part in a wide range of activities and opportunities for leadership.

Prefects and House Captains take an active role in Senior School life and work closely with all other pupils and staff. Sixth Form students organise Charity Week, lead the student council and are role models for the younger pupils.

First team and recreational sports, plays and performances, volunteering within the community and an extensive programme of day and residential trips contribute to an exciting two-year course. 

Weekly careers lessons focusing on university preparation and meetings with the Heads of Sixth Form and subject Heads give plenty of mature, intellectual support to every Sixth Form student. A programme of visiting speakers supports our citizenship and critical thinking courses. Students also attend weekly PSHE classes.

The encouragement and character development that Claremont has given me is supporting me in many aspects of my university education.

The Rome trip was a real highlight – the best school trip I have ever been on. It was great to see amazing sites as well as having a great time with my friends.

 Sport and Activities

Students benefit from a regular calendar of activities and sporting opportunities.

Sixth Form Specific

Departments regularly run A Level subject-specific fieldtrips and workshops to expand learning. Recent examples include: biology to the London Zoo, economics to the Bank of England, drama to the Chichester Festival and media studies to the British Film Institute.

Sixth Form students also take part in weekly additional co-curricular activities. These include a variety of sports at School (e.g. karate, badminton and archery), visiting the Xcel gym to play squash or use the fitness equipment, or helping the community at Brooklands or Whiteley’s village by maintaining the environment (e.g. hedge trimming).

Joint with Lower Years

There are more than thirty-five co-curricular clubs available for any pupil from Year 7 to Upper Sixth, providing a huge range of choice along with the opportunity to help younger pupils develop their interests.

Sixth Form students also play an integral role in all major Senior School performances, including the Carol Service, annual theatrical production and musical teas. They also act as Captains of each of the Houses, take part in Duke of Edinburgh and Young Enterprise. Additionally, every year, the Sixth Form organise the hugely popular Charity Week which runs across the Senior School.

Sport

Sixth Form students from both the Upper and Lower Sixth, along with select Year 11 pupils, form the School's senior-most sports teams in rugby, football, lacrosse and netball. Sixth Form students also enjoy ongoing participation in House sports events. The House Days during the Autumn and Spring terms see them play netball, lacrosse, football and 'Claremont football' (a derivation of gaelic football). In the Summer term they compete in the athletics sports day. Other House sports include tug of war and orienteering competitions.
