Sixth Form Diploma
The Blanchelande Diploma is a unique framework for all-round personal development. Pupils set their own targets at the beginning of the year and their progress is reflected in regular report updates to parents, sitting alongside academic progress and development.
The Sixth Former’s task is to assemble the components of a self-sufficient community, in the form of an ancient city. The seven pillars of your Diploma are symbolized as follow.
The Sixth Form Diploma offers each student the opportunity to recognise, reflect on and develop their individual strengths, encouraging them to embrace challenge and step outside of their comfort zone both intellectually and physically. Engaging with the 7 pillars promotes a broad range of employability skills: creativity, independence, initiative, leadership, resourcefulness, resilience, team-work and self-belief. For those students wishing to progress onto Higher Education, the Diploma also provides them with a rich framework for crafting their Personal Statement. The aim is for the Diploma to ensure that each student leaves school feeling confident, prepared for their chosen pathway and equipped with qualities for success.
