Personal Development at HASU6

In order to keep up with the pressures of modern society, students need more than just excellent academic results. A significant proportion of time outside of the taught, subject-specific curriculum is spent developing the personal skills, qualities and attributes that will help prepare our students for the next steps in life post-HASU6. Our approach will not only provide students with the grades they need to unlock the doors to their next destination; they will also gain the skills needed to thrive once they are there.

Universities and employers are increasingly asking for personal skills that aren’t explicitly taught or assessed in A-levels, so students will be provided with opportunities to develop these attributes through a range of different courses and qualifications.

During Independent Study, students will focus on individualised work plans in a quiet and purposeful environment. Working alone requires planning, develops independent thinking and highlights the need to research and problem-solve in order to succeed. These are key skills: employers and further education institutions value them highly.

In addition, to create lifelong learners and to fully prepare our students for university, apprenticeships or work, HASU6 students will have access to a bespoke Personal Development Curriculum that aligns with our school ethos: Innovation, Integrity and Discovery. This programme is being designed to allow students to follow their passions, challenge themselves and be exposed to ideas and ways of thinking beyond the confines of the A-level curriculum.  It will offer space for students to explore a variety of topics and opportunities with the support of the Academy. Understanding the world around them, how they interact with it and the impact that they may have upon it are key skills that they will never forget.

As members of HASU6, students will take pride in being an integral part of both our school community and that of the local area, and as such students will be encouraged to explore ways they can support not only their peers but also the local residents of Sutton.

Some examples of these opportunities will include:

  • Extended project qualification (EPQ)
  • Duke of Edinburgh
  • Unique STEM opportunities including links with the Institute of Cancer Research and the Royal Marsden Hospital
  • Work experience and internships
  • Student leadership
  • Peer mentoring

As well as all these exciting options, students will also have constant access to pastoral support to ensure they reach their full potential while studying with us. Wellbeing is vitally important and links directly to academic performance so ensuring our students are happy in what they are doing will always be a priority.

Our teachers and pastoral workers go above and beyond to create safe and positive environments in which students can thrive. Students will have regular sessions with their tutors where they will complete a tailored personal development programme to prepare them for life beyond school.
