Sixth Form

ENRICHMENT

We believe that Sixth Form students should be provided with many opportunities to develop their skills, knowledge and ideas beyond the classroom. Our Enrichment Programme has been carefully planned to give you chances to help you pursue other interests and qualifications in conjunction with your main courses. Previous examples of courses/opportunities which have been included in our programme are:

  • Arts Award
  • First Aid
  • Sport (football, netball and use of the gym etc)
  • Duke of Edinburgh Award
  • Cooking on a Budget
  • Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)
  • Sailing
  • Peer Mentoring
  • Life Guard Instructor training
  • Work Experience opportunities (e.g teaching)

Visits

Sixth Form students will be invited to take part in a number of exciting visits, both overseas and within the UK. University masterclasses and residentials, as well as trips to the Birmingham HE Convention and interview skills days will form a crucial part of a student’s experience as they prepare for life beyond the Sixth Form. A European city visit also forms part of the Spring term for students in both Year 12 and Year 13. Recent destinations have included Prague and Paris.

RUGBY ACADEMY

Invictus Sixth Form is pleased to announce the development of the newly – established Invictus Rugby Academy. The course will combine academic study and high-quality sporting provision at, the recently-funded £3.1 million sports complex at Kinver High School and Sixth Form.

The Rugby Academy will offer prospective students individually-tailored educational pathways; these will consist of studying A-Levels or B-TECs depending on students’ needs as well as providing you with high-quality rugby coaching and provision, via established links with Worcester Warriors RFC and England Rugby.

Alongside academic study, several England Rugby accredited qualifications will be completed over the two year period to further enhance students’ rugby development including: Level 2 Coaching Award; Level 2 Officiating Award; Rugby Emergency First Aid; and Child Safeguarding (amongst others.) The course will also include a weekly Rugby specific nutrition and conditioning session hosted by a professional conditioning coach. There will be numerous opportunities for you to compete against rugby playing independent schools and Sixth Forms across the West Midlands region and further afield, providing you with the prospect of demonstrating your skills at the highest possible level in the under-18 field.

This is a unique opportunity for students to not only pursue high quality further education, but to also maintain a firm focus and development in the sport they love. It is hoped thatthis course will allow you to foster a life-long commitment to developing rugby at grassroots level and beyond.
