Co-Curriculum and Character Curriculum

Harris rainham sixth form consultation booklet page 07 image 0001Alongside our academic curriculum, we will provide opportunities, experiences and events for our students through our co-curriculum and character curriculum.  

We expect our students to immerse themselves in a co-curriculum. This will support learners in becoming scholarly in attitude, conduct and ambition, who genuinely love learning.

  • Expert careers advice and pathways to enable students to compete for university places at the highest levels: mentoring, Oxbridge/Russell group pathways, entry test preparation classes.
  • Competitive academic guilds, specifically supporting students into the worlds of finance, engineering, law, and medical/dentistry/ veterinary careers.
  • Broader experiences such as university visits and guest speakers.
  • Opportunities for students to engage in the act of learning beyond the curriculum, such as workshops, book clubs and seminars.
  • Opportunities for students to belong to subject societies.

The character curriculum will enable our students to understand more of themselves by facing challenges and taking opportunities to experience leadership, for example:

  • Opportunities for students to develop their character, such as the Duke of Edinburgh scheme, community projects and workshops.
  • A strong tutor programme where current affairs will be explored, questioned, and debated.
  • Contributing to their community by supporting the 11-16 school through academic mentoring and sports coaching and leadership.
