Sixth Form Enrichment

Isle of Wight Sailing Trip

On Wednesday 2nd September a group of Sixth Form students set off to the Isle of Wight for three days of team building events at UKSA, Cowes – one of the largest watersports activity centres in Europe. Over the three days students took part in a variety of different activities including: swimming, kayaking, paddle-boarding and sailing. They also participated in team-building activities to help prepare for the year ahead and had a fun packed evening of entertainment organised for them each night.

We had a number of external students that were joining the academy for the the academy for the first time in Sixth Form which gave them the opportunity to mix with our existing students. Feedback from the students was extremely positive.

Greta said, “It was a really good opportunity to get to know others before starting lessons. It made me feel less nervous about starting at the academy. I really enjoyed the pool activities and the sailing. It was really nice getting to know the Sixth Form staff away from a school setting.”

Lauren said, “I really got to know other people that were going to be studying the same subject as me. I have never been away from home on my own and I was really nervous about going. This trip was amazing for me because in so many different situations I was encouraged to stand outside my comfort zone. It helped me become more independent. I feel more confident in my own abilities and really push myself to achieve new goals. Thanks to the Sixth Form team for organising it!”

Overall, the trip was a really positive experience for both staff and students, leading to a more focussed group of Year 12s.
