Life Skills

BCS help each student to aim for the top, achieve their best, and, ultimately, enjoy a distinguished career

Life Skills

Upon joining the Sixth Form, each student benefits from a personal tutor for constant support and guidance. Via a wonderfully enriched learning programme, we equip each student with highly valuable life skills

Throughout their time in Sixth Form students will:

·         Be taught the importance of hard work

·         Learn to manage their own time effectively

·         Develop research as well as communication skills

·         Think for themselves and learn to evaluate the world around them

·         Be inspired by their subject choices to want to learn beyond the curriculum

·         Discover what interests them, what they are good and excel at

·         Serve and lead, learning about the spirit of a community

·         Discover that freedom comes with responsibility

·         Be provided with a personal tutor and advice to make sure the decisions they take about the future are in their long-term interests

·         Receive excellent preparation for life at university and beyond

Global citizens

Few would disagree that through travel and modern communications, the world in which we live can seem a much smaller place. Equally, with today’s career opportunities just as likely to stem from the major economic centres overseas as from the UK, we believe that it is vitally important that every Sixth Former views life with a true sense of internationalism.

Consequently, whether it is through the relationships they make with other Sixth Formers, skiing, travelling to Africa, studying in France and Spain we make certain that students gain countless opportunities to experience the world, discover new cultures, meet people from different walks of life and truly broaden their horizons.

Sophisticated teaching and learning, a richness of opportunity and a profound sense of community are the clear hallmarks of Sixth Form life at Bournemouth Collegiate. During the Sixth Form years we do everything possible to help each student to aim for the top, achieve their best, secure a place at one of the premier Higher Education institutions – and, ultimately, enjoy a distinguished career.
