Key Stage 5

Sixth Form Seminars

Each term we offer a seminar to approximately 30 local sixth form students led by one of our Canon Professors on topics relevant to the AS and A Level syllabus.  Previous seminar topics have included Morality and War, Ethics and the Recession and the Philosophy of a Suffering God.  This is a chance for students to join with other schools and be taught by world experts in the fields they are studying, and also have a taste of university-style learning.

'The seminar was good in terms of developing key skills, as the students had a chance to discuss things, and it was a good opportunity for them to listen to a university-style talk.  The organisation and information provided before the visit was outstanding.'  (Philosophy teacher, The Dearne Advanced Learning Centre, Barnsley)
