What is 6Advance?
6Advance is an exciting range of ‘academies’ designed to enable ambitious students to prepare for university and prestigious future careers. Each 6Advance choice will provide participating students with excellent activities and skills-building to help them go beyond the exam curriculum and apply their knowledge and skills in challenging contexts. In so doing, they will discover more
about about a general subject or job area and will build up a great portfolio for applying to highly selective universities or higher apprenticeship programmes. You will develop exceptional employability skills, including, leadership, collaboration and teamworking, public speaking and confidence.
How 6Advance works
Entry to each of the 6Advance academies is selective and will be based on an application made early in the autumn term. The academies then run for the rest of the year. Students who gain entry to one of our 6Advance academies are not required to
take a 6Xtra option (general enrichment, sports/leisure and personal development programme) but they can choose to do so.
The academies run usually on Wednesday PM, but may also run after core college hours and so do not affect the students’ main subject studies..
