Long Road is well known for its Enrichment Programme, which encourages students to participate in a wide range of activities outside the classroom.
These may include sport (including membership of college teams and the Long Road Basketball Academy), dance, drama and music, fund-raising and other charity or community work, attendance at subject workshops and membership of our student community, peer mentor and equality champion groups. Some of these activities will be college-based, whilst others might involve participation in external events.
Students are awarded credits for these activities and are expected to earn at least 50 credits in Year 12.
Nigel Ballard, Enrichment Manager, was very pleased to discover that a group of students had earned over 100 credits in 2009-10, and arranged a special award ceremony to celebrate the students’ success.
Each student received a letter of commendation from Georgina Atkinson, Assistant Principal, who oversees the Enrichment Programme.
Nigel says: “Long Road Sixth Form College is justifiably proud of its Enrichment Programme, and the Awards Event is just one way that we celebrate our students’ achievements. It is wonderful to see such a wide and diverse range of students being recognised in this way.”
