School Captain Introduction

The Bemrose Sixth Form is a small, friendly, multicultural community of enthusiastic students. We are taught by supportive and understanding teachers; we get a lot of support in and out of lessons, our teachers make sure that we complete work to a high standard.

Sixth formers have lots of opportunities to organise, lead and finance charity events, raising money for different charities. We like to beat the previous year’s target every year, this year we have already raised over £2500. Sixth formers have lots of other enrichment opportunities to be involved in, these include leading or being part of the student council, leading assemblies and representing the school in events such as the Derbyshire Skills Festival. This year, sixth formers have had the opportunity to take a course in coaching and leadership, we mentor lower school students and also help them develop their reading skills. There are also reward trips such as Alton Towers and London.

Sixth Formers get to work closely with the school careers lead, Mrs Amos, to receive high quality career advice. There are lots of activities in this area including mock interviews, enterprise days and careers events to help you find the right path when you leave.
