Cowley Sixth Form offers a wide range of enrichment options in order to provide students with extra opportunities and skills to include on their CV or Personal Statement for university.

Enrichment complements studies as well as giving every student the chance to do something different to stand out from other students.

There are two routes of enrichment: one leading to a qualification and the other to take part in as a contrast to your academic studies and to help learn a new skill.

Enrichment constitutes a compulsory part of Sixth Form education and all students, regardless of their chosen courses, will need to select an enrichment activity.

The choice of enrichment activities changes each year; the lists below give an idea of the different types of activities that students could choose.
