Important as the academic side is, there is another dimension to a rounded education: the opportunities outside the classroom. Knowledge is vital, but so too are confidence, communication and character. Learning how to lead, how to contribute and how to build. Taking the odd risk too. These skills will stand you in very good stead. Whether it is a concert, a play, a debate, a trek or a match does not matter much. What matters is participation and a willingness to try something new.
There is a vast array of opportunity at College to try new challenges. The twin pillars of the CCF and the Duke of Edinburgh scheme are the flagships, but there is plenty more on offer.
Named after our Nobel-Prize winner, Sir William Henry Bragg, who was a magnificent all-rounder at KWC in the late 19th century, the Bragg Society aims to encourage debate and discussion, led by students and staff on a range of provocative and thought provoking subjects.
Sixth Form Lectures
Each year a programme of Sixth Form lectures welcomes guest speakers to deliver talks to the entire Sixth Form. Students may be invited to dine with the speaker after the event.
Sixth form here is like no other sixth form and that is not just because of the International Baccalaureate Diploma. It’s the way we are treated like adults, have plenty of freedom and are trusted.U6 Student
