Extension Programme

Thinking Outside the Box

The programme is designed for those in the Sixth Form who wish to extend their learning experience, their lateral thinking and their intellectual flexibility.

There is an open invitation to all to take part and the programme includes the following opportunities:-

  • Meetings to give presentations of a topic of interest to one’s peers
  • Subject lectures at other Schools and Universities such as Birmingham, Aston and Warwick
  • Debating
  • Interview practice
  • Work experience opportunities such as the Nuffield Research Placements
  • The Extended Project Qualification in the Upper Sixth.
  • A meeting with the Oxford liaison officer

Many girls work towards the Extended Project Qualification, Level 3 which is favoured by universities. This independent piece of research pursued by the girls is an excellent introduction to undergraduate learning and enables them to follow an academic interest or passion during their A2 year.
