At Buxton Community School we believe that life in the Sixth Form is not just about academic study. We have developed a range of enrichment activities and volunteering opportunities for our students to benefit from. These range from extra qualifications such as the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award, and the Extended Project Qualification to opportunities to get involved in supporting younger students in their lessons and sporting activities such as 6 a side football, table tennis, circuit training and 5k running. There is something for everyone.
The Sixth Form Council is an important way of representing the student voice to the School leadership team, and the Prom Committee organise the annual end of year celebration. The Sixth Form Council also organise fund raising activities to support local, national and international charities.
In 2017, we held our first Sixth Form team building camp to Gradbach which was a huge success and now will be an annual event.
