Student Life

You will have load to do in the sixth form - it's not all work, work, work!

Trips and Visits

Trips and visits will also play a big part in your sixth form learning and no matter what courses you study, you are sure to find yourself somewhere exciting to help you gain as much as you can from your chosen subjects.

Trips to New York, Germany and Iceland are all included in our sixth form calendar plus there are also plenty of theatre trips, art exhibitions and university visits for you to take part in. These often link to your studies, but also allow you to broaden your horizons and share new experiences with your friends.

Clubs and Societies

Whatever your interests there is something for you. Gain new skills, meet different people and simply have fun.

If you can’t find what you are looking for, why not set up your own club? That’s exactly how the debating society was formed and is a perfect example of what can be achieved when a group of students share an interest and want to pursue it further.

Music

As a sixth form student you can join...

Senior Orchestra
Senior Choir
Windband
Percussion ensemble
String Orchestra

As a member of these groups you will perform in a number of concerts throughout the year, as well as providing the musical accompaniment to the annual school musical.

Or you could take part in our hugely popular Battle of the Bands competition which runs every year for students from all year groups.

Exercise and Sport

Sports teams

South Hunsley has a strong sporting tradition which continues into the Sixth Form. You can join one of our teams and represent South Hunsley on a local, regional and national level. We currently have football, rugby and girls’ football teams and, as always, the option to set up your own is there.

Qualifications

Our Sport Leadership Academy is designed to offer you a pathway into sport. You can develop your leadership skills and achieve a nationally recognised qualification by taking either our Community Sports Leaders Award (CSLA) or the Higher Sports Leaders Award (HSLA). The PE Department will work with you to give you access to the sport volunteering hours you need either at South Hunsley School or through the links they’ve established with our local primary schools.

You could also find yourself as a Sports Captain for the college and in your final year of sixth form become a member of the PE Department as a Young Ambassador for PE. This will see you attend conferences and give you the opportunity to champion and promote school sport to other students.

South Hunsley Sports Centre

At South Hunsley Sixth Form, you can exercise your body as well as your brain. South Hunsley Sports is perfectly located if you fancy a work out in the gym. A £12.50 monthly membership (with no joining fee or fixed term contract committment) will give you full access to all our facilities.

Volunteer

South Hunsley's anual Sports Day is always a popular event with both studnts and staff, as are the termly interform competitions. You can help support these events and volunteer as a referee or umpire. You might also want to share your sporting skills and tips with younger year groups and help run extra practices for their teams.

Charity Work

Join our Charities Committee to help raise money for worthy causes. The Charities Group is part of the Student Union and works tirelessly to raise as much money as possible for South Hunsley’s chosen charities.

Fundraising ideas are shared between students, collated by sixth form members of the group and put into action. Previous events have included a Christmas fayre, candy cane messengers and a sixth form quiz league. Potential ideas for the future are a Hunsley Bake Off and drama review. At various points throughout the year our students dedicate their time to raising money for local and national charities.

On days such as Red Nose Day and Children in Need it is tradition for school students to have a non-uniform day but seeing as you already have that privilege as a sixth form student, you can turn back the clock and dig out your old school uniform to wear for the day.

You could also help out with cake stalls, charity Dodgeball matches, staff vs students events and loads more.
