The Student Union is a group of dedicated students from Year 12 and 13 who work together to make ag6 an enjoyable and social experience for all. The Student Union run a number of societies and is always keen for new members to set up more. Current societies include charity, student well-being, social, media and the ag6 school council.
What the Student Union does
Carry out a project that you are passionate about
All ag6 students are encouraged to get involved in our Extended Project Qualification. This can be on any subject of a student’s interest. It can take any format from a written project to a performance or piece of artwork and encourages independent learning. Universities particularly value this qualification.
The aim of this unique programme is to offer those of you who might be considering a career in teaching, either at primary or secondary school level, the opportunity to gain first hand experience of what skills are needed to be a teacher.
The programme is based at ag6 where you will be assigned a class in the main school, or one of the local primary schools, in a subject area that you wish to teach.
Tomorrow’s Teachers is about children, how they learn and how we can support them to realise their full potential.
You will gain experience in the following areas:
- Learning and Teaching: The tools of the trade.
- What do we look for when observing lessons?
- Creating an environment where working relationships are built on high expectations.
- Specific strategies that teachers use to promote positive behaviour within their classrooms and beyond.
This enrichment course is aimed at students interested in architecture, engineering and construction careers.
Design, Engineer, Construct! aims to help students develop their knowledge and skills through the undertaking of a sustainable building project, featuring workshops run under the watchful eye of industry professionals. The course challenges students to work both independently and as a team to maximise 21st Century technologies.
Students who wish to take part in either team sports or make use of the Fitness Suite are encouraged to do so and timetabled lessons are provided. We have a successful boys football team and new members are always welcome!
