Some incredible poetry readings sent in by Year 6 students who will be joining us in September for their ACE challenge! What lovely intonation of voice you have, Ellis. I loved your readings of 'Parting Thought' and 'Lunch Line' by Steven Camden. https://t.co/6g0PQnE86c

Charlie's Food and nutrition homework was to create foccacia bread and turn it into a piece of art. We had to improvise as we have no yeast but our cheese on toast lunch was very tasty. https://t.co/H8sbSxteJg

Welcome to ESJ Sixth Form

The Sixth Form at ESJ is a rich and vibrant community of students and teachers who are committed to achieving excellence in everything they do. The choices you make in terms of your Post 16 education is paramount. At ESJ Sixth Form, we offer Year 11 students the perfect transition, which is supportive and effective for both our current students and those joining us from outside the school. It is a time of opportunities and experiences; academic, social and cultural, and we aim to help students to successfully complete their formal education before moving on to university, apprenticeships or work. Our Sixth Form at ESJ creates a caring and inspirational learning environment within the context of Christian values where every student is highly valued.

We offer a range of A Level and vocational courses in 28 subjects as well as an extra-curricular and broad enrichment programme which ensures we develop confident, intelligent, resilient and ambitious young adults.

Our Sixth Form students play an important and valuable role in our school, contributing actively to the wider life of the school community. They lead events with younger students, demonstrating tremendous leadership and motivation.

Sixth Form students are heavily involved in the Lower School and are given leadership roles and responsibilities in the form of mentoring younger students, running clubs, supporting in lessons and as reading mentors. This ensures the connection between the Sixth Form and main school year groups, providing aspiration and insight to Sixth Form life for younger years. At the same time there is opportunity to provide service to the school and the wider community, a valuable learning experience for later life.

Epping St John's Sixth Form is part of a wider consortium called EFD6. This includes Roding Valley High School and Debden Park High School. This consortium arrangements allows us to offer courses that would n't otherwise run in each individual school. For example, students at Epping St John's who opted for English Language might take the classes for this one A Level at Roding Valley, or students at Debden Park who opted for French A Level may study for this at Epping St John's. Transport is arranged to ferry students to or from their host schools. Further information on this and other aspects of how the consortium works can be found on the EFD6 website.

ENRICHMENT OPPORTUNITIES

At Epping St. John’s we are not only concerned about the academic success and wellbeing of our students. We are also committed to providing opportunities for personal growth through our enrichment programme. We want the young men and women who live here to have the skills and qualities that employers and universities are looking for. We encourage our students to take full advantage of the range of activities on offer:

  • Duke Of Edinburgh award scheme
  • Completion of an Extended Project Qualification on a topic of their choice.
  • Level 3 Maths qualification (for those students not taking A Level Maths but still interested in the subject, or those who are studying subjects with a proportion of mathematical skills eg Psychology, Physics, Chemistry, Economics, Engineering)
  • Physical activities
  • Classroom Assistant experience
  • Mentoring younger students
  • Volunteer in the local community eg Primary School, Nursing Home
  • Work experience (Students are welcome to organise this during their free lessons)
  • First Aid course
  • Open Learn certificated courses (free online courses in areas of a student’s own interest)
  • Food Hygiene Certificate and
  • Fundraising for charities
  • Involvement in whole school productions
  • Supporting at extra-curricular clubs
  • Sixth Form Council
  • Trips
  • Language Courses
  • Safe Driving and Theory test
  • Self Defence Course

* Students are also welcome to put forward their own ideas for enrichment clubs.

Independent Study

Both Year 12 & 13 students are allocated a number of study periods. These lessons should be used constructively for learning: they are not free time.

A fundamental difference between sixth form and GCSE academic expectations is the amount of independent study needed to be completed in order to be successful. Some of this independent work will be structured through homework and prework but students must also ensure they are completing their own independent work.  This may include activities such as:

·         Re-reading and consolidating material covered in lessons that week

·         Making on-going revision notes

·         Practicing exam questions

·         Reading academic journals, newspapers, books and articles

·         Conducting deeper research on particular areas of interest

For example, if there are 4 hours of a subject per week on a students’ timetable, they will be expected to complete 2 hours of independent work in that subject during their study periods.

Those students in Year 12 who understand the importance of effective independent study have benefited greatly in their progress and achievement. Whilst Epping St Johns want students to enjoy their time in the Sixth Form, however, it is important to recognise that choosing to study requires commitment to learning to gain qualifications on or above target.

At the beginning of September, on a date specified on the calendar, all Year 12 students take part in a study skills session, as part of their induction process.
