Community is a huge part of what makes Hedingham Sixth Form so special. At Hedingham students have the opportunity to involve themselves in a wide range of different activities within the school and the wider community.  Click below to find out more about each of the different community activities.

Students help to run and organise numerous events including MacMillan coffee morning, bake sales, fancy dress days to the annual Sixth Form Quiz. These events help to raise hundreds of pounds every year.

Fundraising is an important part of the Sixth Form and the students take great pride in the activities that they organise.

A large group of Sixth Formers volunteer each year to take part in the paired reading programme. This programme matches a Sixth Form student with a Year 7 student who is struggling with their reading.

The Sixth Form student will read with the student each week helping them to improve both their reading as well as their confidence.

Those students who wish to volunteer can enrol in the schools highly successful and rewarding peer mentoring programme. The programme was set up by the House Team as a way of supporting students in the lower school who have a range of issues, including social and academic.

Sixth Form students are paired with a student and meet with them once a week to help them work through any problems that they may be having. This programme is highly rewarding for both the younger student and the Sixth Former and has made a real positive impact on the students involved.

Student voice is a key part of what makes Hedingham so special and we have a very active Sixth Form Council that meets once a fortnight to discuss issues within the Sixth Form and to organise and run numerous charity events each year, helping to raise considerable amounts of money for various charities.

Every year the Sixth Form also elects a Head Boy and Head Girl to lead the School Council. The Head Boy and Head Girl play an incredibly important role within the school, talking at Open Evenings, speaking at assemblies, meeting with the Headteacher to discuss issues within the school and Sixth Form.

Sixth form students have set up and created a wellbeing garden at the vocational centre where students can either sit and revise for exams or just spend time in the garden to destress and relax. The garden is maintained and looked after by a group of students.
