Sixth Form 

at Archbishop Ilsley Catholic School


During your Sixth Form experience you will have a wide range of enrichment activities to get involved with.  These opportunities not only aid your personal development and maximise your time with us but they will enhance your prospects of entering Higher Education or employment. 

Enrichment activities take place each week on a Friday.  This time allows you to take up new activities as well as further your skills in areas of particular interest.  The common theme of the activities is that you will extend yourselves beyond your taught lessons. 

At specific times throughout the terms, you can socialise with students from different courses across Years 12 and 13.

In addition, a wide range of activities are also planned for our Sixth Formers throughout the year.
