Duke of Edinburgh

You can achieve your Duke of Edinburgh with our Sixth Form up to Silver level. This will involve going on two expeditions, delivering a presentation and completing an online assessment. In addition, you will have to complete volunteering work in the community or sports clubs (60 hours Bronze, 120 hours Silver).

Extended Project

Our Sixth Form allows students to take the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), this allows students to gain a qualification which is the equivalent to an AS Level. The choice of topic students base the project on is a free choice, but must show that it is academically useful

Work Experience

We assist our students in obtaining work placements with local companies, allowing them to gain a taster of future careers. We also organise work with our partner schools Lozells and Mayfield, who allow our Sixth formers to gain experience working as Translators, Mentors and Classroom Assistants. We also organise a business project with Midland Heart, with students given an insight into issues businesses face.


A wide array of sports clubs are available for our students to take part in. These include Football, Cricket, Netball and Fitness clubs. There are inter-form competitions in football and netball. The Sixth Form also has teams in Football and Cricket, who compete against other local Sixth Forms.
