The student experience extends far beyond the classroom. You could learn a new skill, try something different and simply have fun, alongside like-minded people. There is something for everyone, from learning Japanese to British Sign Language, Brain Day to Theatre visits, Zumba to Football, Duke of Edinburgh to OxNet.

While developing academically at the college, enrichment is a great way to develop personally, enhance your applications to university, apprenticeships or employment, and even gain an additional qualification.

Check out our e-enrichment guide below.

Duke of Edinburgh

Here at Ashton Sixth Form College you will be able to work towards your Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award. The experience you will gain, through the five main elements: volunteering, physical, skill, residential and expedition, is tremendous.
Nationally the vast majority of Gold expeditions are completed on foot, however here at Ashton Sixth Form we are proud to also offer you the opportunity to complete your expedition by canoe, something our students have loved in recent years. Find out more here
