In September we will be launching the B6 Community Contribution Scholarship for our Year 12 students which aims to encourage students to contribute positively to their wider community.
This is a great opportunity to not only further develop our links and work within our local community, but it will also enable students to develop their LORIC skills. These are crucial skills needed by students as they embark on their Post 16 studies and future pathways. This scholarship will give students the chance to develop their Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative and Communication skills (LORIC).
The B6 Community Contribution Scholarship will recognise those who have reached an exceptional standard. As part of this we would like the scholarship to be sponsored by a local business and so the student who has contributed the greatest number of hours to their local community, receives recognition. We would like to give the student a laptop which is theirs to keep and will also support them in their Year 13 studies and future pathways.
The student will also have their name displayed within Bradgate Sixth Form as well as the name of the business/businesses who have sponsored the scholarship for that academic year.
If you are a local business and would like to support this, then there are a number of ways you can.
We really appreciate any support you can offer.
– Sponsor the B6 Community Contribution Scholarship by donating to the cost of a laptop
– Inform us of any volunteering opportunities within our local community
– Offer summer internships/work experience/shadowing for students interested in your business
If you would like any further information or to discuss how you could support, please contact Katie Johnson (Head of Bradgate Sixth Form) at email@example.com
