The Channing Experience
The education at Channing Sixth Form is truly holistic. We understand that a truly well-rounded education isn’t solely about excelling in the classroom; it’s about fostering personal growth and striking a harmonious balance between academic achievement and personal development. We call this the Channing Experience.
In Channing Sixth Form we prepare our students for the next stage of their journey. Now, more than ever, young people need to be fully equipped with not only the necessary academic qualifications, but also the effective life skills to succeed in the workplace and the world at large.
Our exceptional pastoral care, wide-ranging enrichment and extra-curricular activities and trips, community service and volunteering links, alongside leadership and team-building opportunities, are just as important to our students’ development as the A Level subjects being studied.
Whether it be navigating an expedition with their team on the Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award, mentoring or being a buddy to younger students, learning their first salsa steps on a Sixth Form trip to Cuba, or debating and engaging with young people from across Europe through the European Parliament Ambassador School Programme (EPAS), the opportunities for personal development are wide-ranging, plentiful, fulfilling, and will ensure that, when the time comes, our Sixth Formers are able to take their next steps confidently into the world beyond Channing.
