As a collaborative sixth form, we place high importance on enabling you and your fellow Amethyst 6th peers to build and grow as a sixth form team. During transition you will be invited to an adventure day where you will work in a team at completing exciting teambuilding activities such as paintball, laser tag and inflatable challenge. You will be placed into your Amethyst 6th house group from the very beginning of the day and you will compete against your fellow peers in the other two houses for the coveted Amethyst 6th trophy! The day is designed for you to meet your new peers in a fun and engaging environment with some healthy competition.
On the second day, you will be invited to a challenge day in the new Amethyst 6th building. After a sit down breakfast and a welcome presentation from the sixth form team, you will be challenged to use your crucial study skills in a team to complete an escape room and create a business idea from scratch. Here you will be supported by the sixth form teachers and will get to know them alongside the other students in your year group. A celebratory lunch will be provided on each of these days and you will have the opportunity to tour the sixth form building, explore the facilities and get comfortable with your new surroundings.
