Sixth Form students are able to engage with their younger counterparts in all aspects of school life. The house system of sporting, expressive art and other competitions is mainly organised by our House Captains. The wellbeing of younger students is monitored with the support of mentors and prefects, while Sixth Form students use their talents to assist with whole school performances, in the classroom and through projects in the local area. Mentors are given professional training to help them to support younger students.
Many students also participate in local community projects. Sixth Formers also use their writing and photographic skills in contributing to school publications such as The Chaloner magazine and King James´s content in the Knaresborough Post.
Elections are held for the Sixth Form Council, which organises many social events, including the Leavers´ Ball. Representatives of the committee help in the appointment of new staff and meet with governors to discuss large projects within the Sixth Form. The Council also manages whole school fundraising projects, and this year adopted Harrogate Homeless Project as the focus for fundraising and improving social awareness. Other fundraising events have included bucket collections, car washing and fancy dress for Children in Need, a Cake Bake Sale raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support and contribution to Medecins Sans Frontiere to support their work in tackling eboal. Students also support the annual British Legion poppy appeal.
