Make a Difference
Claires Court Sixth Form students take the time to MAKE A DIFFERENCE in a variety of ways.
These days a successful university application or CV has to be varied, show experience, demonstrate a deeper understanding of subjects and a variety of skills that can be applied across a range of settings.
You can make a difference to your résumé by embracing all the opportunities that come your way. Whether it is a Physics trip to CERN, embarking on an EPQ qualification, involvement in the Young Enterprise business challenge or taking part in a charity doughnut eating competition, you will have much more than a qualification when you leave.
