At Redhill, we believe in nurturing the possibilities open to our students. We actively encourage all our Sixth Form students to become involved in the broader life of the school and offer a range of opportunities that help produce well-rounded individuals ready to take on the world.



HE+ is a programme of Masterclasses, funded by Cambridge University, for state sector sixth forms with the aim to inspire students to apply to competitive universities such as Oxford, Cambridge and other Russell Group universities.

These sessions aim to provide extra support for those who are already academic and highly aspirational, but also those from less academic backgrounds who have the potential to progress to selective higher education but are perhaps from under-represented areas and backgrounds and therefore would be less likely to progress on to top-tier universities.




This course uses sport to give young people the chance to develop vital skills for life such as planning and organising, teamwork and communication. It is fun and practical.

For students who completed Level 1 in Sports Leadership during Year 10, this is an excellent qualification to progress onto. There is, however, no requirement that students wishing to embark on the Level 2 Award must have previously completed the Level 1 Award.

Upon completion of the 8 units, students will be qualified and prepared to independently lead small groups of children while under direct supervision.




Everyone gets different things out of the Award, but there are some common benefits. In taking part, you’ll develop:

  • Self-belief
  • Self-confidence
  • A sense of identity
  • Independence of thought and action
  • A sense of responsibility
  • An awareness of their potential
  • New talents and abilities
  • An understanding of strengths and weaknesses
  • The ability to plan and use time
  • The ability to learn from and give to others in the community
  • New relationships
  • Skills including problem-solving, presentation and communication
  • The ability to lead and work as part of a team




The EPQ is a really valuable qualification that universities love and is worth more than half an A level. It is aimed at students who are passionate about learning and conducting detailed extra research. You will be working independently with regular meetings with your mentor to check progress. On average students read around 10+ books/articles and write a 5000-word project (around 15 pages) Although this is very time-consuming it is very rewarding and for students who love their subject a real opportunity to demonstrate this.

If you are looking to get high grades and apply to very competitive courses or universities e.g. Oxford, Cambridge, Medicine, Law-then this could be a great option for you!

Topics covered in the past include the miner’s strike, the battle of Hastings, Architecture, and the impact of Feminism, but if you are a Scientist you may want to look in detail at recent scientific development. The world is your oyster!




Further Maths is a full A-level that requires you to already take Maths and will consist of a further 5 lessons a week. It builds on the content you will cover in Maths and you will learn about new, challenging concepts and is aimed at students that are considering studying a Mathematical or Engineering degree post-A-level.

If you plan to take Further Maths you are not required to pick an Enrichment online.




The work will involve helping Lower School pupils with a variety of different needs in different subject areas. This could mean helping them read the textbook, understand the teacher’s instructions, or in some cases encouraging them to put up their hand to answer a question.

Students taking this option will be given the opportunity to apply for the ‘Get Ready for Teaching’ training programme. The programme has been designed to better prepare Year 12 students for a career in teaching.




Paired reading will also involve helping Lower School pupils with a variety of different needs in different subject areas. You will be encouraging younger students with their reading and confidence.

Students taking this option will be given the opportunity to apply for the ‘Get Ready for Teaching’ training programme. The programme has been designed to better prepare Year 12 students for a career in teaching.




Women’s and Gender Studies examines how broader structural forces in both historical and contemporary contexts shape the lives of individual women and men.

It will involve reading books on the topic as well as considering research and debate. We will also delve into film screenings and events e.g. International Women’s Day!




Being physically active is perhaps the most significant factor for your health, but it is also closely related to how effectively your brain works and can help you achieve better academic results!

Spend an hour a week with us in PE so that we can support you with your sports and fitness goals. The activities will be selected based on what students want to work on. For example, you may want to have a 5-a-side football tournament, play netball, play basketball, play badminton, attend Redhill gym, attend a fitness class at Redhill Leisure Centre or play table tennis.  We will work hard to deliver you an hour of exercise that is both enjoyable and beneficial for your health and education.




If you have not gained Grade 4 or above in English Language or Maths yet, you will have a weekly re-sit class instead of another Enrichment.

This should prepare you to pass next time around in November. Once we know your result in January, hopefully, we will be able to update your timetable and add a different enrichment activity.

Make sure revision for your re-sit is underway ASAP.



The Fine Line is an opportunity for anyone who enjoys art to explore the process of drawing. You will be inspired by different drawing styles and encouraged to use a range of mediums within the sessions. You will work across a range of scales and creatively use the drawing skills we explore to create your work and outcomes. 



These opportunities allow our students to volunteer within the local community around Arnold. This year we have students volunteering in 3 local primary schools. We work with a range of students from different year groups and support different activities (for example, sports, reading and much more). The programme is designed to better prepare Year 12 students for careers in teaching/working with children. It also allows our students to develop transferable skills that can be applied to other professions.



Science book club is for anyone with an interest in STEM subjects. We will read 3 books throughout the year and receive feedback. Books will be chosen collaboratively.



Pride Group has been set up to celebrate and learn about the LGBTQ+ community and is open to all year groups. 

Taking part in this enrichment will give you the opportunity to: 

  • Learn more about the LGBTQ+ community. 
  • Become a Student Leader; training is provided through Just Like Us.
  • Be a role model for younger students. 
  • Help organise and run group events and activities. 
  • Develop presentation and communication skills.
  • Develop confidence and a sense of identity.
