A specialist Medics Enrichment programme for students aspiring to Medicine degrees
The Sixth Form has a comprehensive Aiming High programme that is part of our commitment to challenge, support and encourage all students to achieve as highly as they can at college. Students on this programme benefit from activities that stretch and challenge them through demanding reading, participation in debate and discussion, visiting speakers and aspirational trips and visits.
Students achieving all grades 7-9 at GCSE who wish to pursue a medical-related career – Medicine, Dentistry, Registered Nursing and other clinical careers – have the opportunity to become part of the Medics. These students are timetabled in a dedicated coaching group and participate in a 2-hour weekly enrichment programme that provides the skills needed to excel in their chosen field and to ensure they are fully prepared for the rigorous university entrance process that ensues.
