Each Wednesday afternoon students have two hours of enrichment of their choosing. Students are encouraged to track their enrichment activities during tutor time.
This strand provides you with an opportunity to engage with personal interests such as sports, music, knitting or chess.
Activities such as these allow you to deepen your knowledge of your subject, for example biologists can attend the very popular ‘biology medical club’ where you are introduced to a medical journal on a weekly basis that is then discussed.
Model United Nations
Model UN is a simulation of the UN General Assembly where HAB6 students perform an ambassador role while debating topics such as gender equality, climate action, global health and more. HAB6 students have the opportunity of competing both nationally and internationally in live conferences in countries such as Scotland and Switzerland. It is an ideal enrichment for students interested in pursuing degrees in Politics, International Relations, Law and History.
Extended Project Qualification
At HAB6 we now offer the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) which is worth half an A-level. This is a research project that is highly regarded by universities as its primary aim is to support in developing student’s research skills. You can expect to receive a supervisor who will support in guiding you through the project and an EPQ teacher who teaches you for an hour a week on how to develop essential skills.
Widening participation programmes
You will have access to a wide range of widening participation programmes which are useful in supporting your university applications and in some cases can help you receive a lower grade offer. Previous students have engaged in a wide range of widening participation programmes with universities such as: Durham, Cambridge, Royal Holloway, St Andrew’s. Universities such as King’s College and Loughborough have visited the school to speak to our students.
