Bishop Challoner students are interested young people who enjoy a variety of cultural experiences alongside their academic pursuits. Lecture programs, Music, Drama, STEM Science Club, Duke of Edinburgh Award and the School Service Award run alongside a wide range of sports activities and sports leadership. Next year the Geography Department are planning a school trip to the West Coast of the USA and the PE department are taking our footballers on tour to the Netherlands.
All Sixth Form students are expected to get involved in some of these activities which enrich their lives culturally and develop personal and team skills vital in an ever changing work environment. Indeed the whole concept of these enrichment activities is to enhance the development of well-rounded, caring, independent young people with a strong sense of moral and social responsibility.
The Sixth Form is pre-University style culture with extremely high expectations and challenges, but equally high rewards at the end. It probably constitutes the best days of school at Bishop Challoner for many students.
