Extra-Curricular Activities

We have a vast range of extra-curricular activities within Horsforth Sixth Form. You will gain a tremendous amount from participating in extracurricular activities. We aim to provide you with the opportunity to develop new interests, become more knowledgeable and skilled in an area, boost your self-confidence and benefit from doing something away from the pressure of passing exams. Those who interview for places in higher education, jobs and training schemes want evidence of wider achievements as well as good grades. They want to know about leadership skills, self-motivation, commitment and evidence of good time management. A record will be kept of all the activities you participate in and the details used by your tutor to write your UCAS and/or employment reference. Some examples of extra-curricular activities are:  

  • Reading Matters
  • Special Needs Support
  • Technician opportunities
  • Journalism
  • Basic Sign Language
  • Sports teams
  • Tutor group support in Years 7 & 8
  • Sixth Form Councils / Committees
  • Charity Work
  • Music and Drama performances
  • Debating club
