Recreational Sport – Students are involved in a number of teams, outdoor sport as an option runs on a Wednesday afternoon, and there are supporting training sessions for sports teams.
Sport and Exercise - As a student in the Sixth Form, you will enjoy access to Huish Leisure throughout the day. Join in with the classes, book courts, workout in the cardio room, enrol on courses and enjoy all the facilitiesof our own Leisure Centre for free including our 25 metre indoor swimming pool.
Peer Mentoring - Can you support our younger students in their learning? You can get involved in both class and in one to one schemes. This offers the chance to have a role with real responsibility, offering help and support to other students in school.
Debating Society provides students with experience of rhetoric in a formal public setting. It is open to all, and topics are agreed upon between teachers and students. Students are coached and supported to construct their arguments, but increasingly they become more skilled and independent in doing this for themselves. Current political and philosophical topics are very popular and attract large audiences from Sixth Form peers, Year 11s and staff. The Society both models and helps students to develop more confident oratory skills, as well as skilled construction of argument and counter argument which is so important in essay-based subjects.
The H.A.M Society - The Humanities, Art and Music Society was established in 2018 by a group of like- minded Year 12 Huish Sixth students who wished to explore and share their various subject passions. Each week, students take it in turns to present to the group on their topic of choice. There is considerable consumption of hot chocolate and chocolate in all its’ forms involved. At intervals, the meetings take the form of a series Roman-style debates – complete with togas and Roman sandals, naturally! Our topics thus far have included Alexander The Great, Claude Monet, Churchill’s War Rooms, The Development of the Symphony, What is the Point of Art?, Germany in WW1, Caravaggio and more. Now that our group members are in Year 13, we are opening up membership to new Year 12s equally passionate about such subjects (and willing to wear a toga!).
