- Work experience opportunities with prestigious companies.
- The ‘Extended Project Qualification’ (EPQ)
- Student Magazine
- UCAS statement support workshops
- Football team
- Netball team

University Trips and Workshops:
Each year, RVHS provide trips to Oxford, Cambridge and other Russell Group Universities. Students take part in a number of workshops on: the university application process; life at university; how to write a personal statement and taster lectures.
University trips and workshops both in school and at the universities are available to our Sixth Form students as well as high achieving students in year 10 and 11.
The ‘Extended Project Qualification’ or ‘EPQ’
This qualification is available for students to complete in addition to their A Levels. It will allow the students to research and write about something that they are interested in and passionate about that may not be on the curriculum. Alternatively, if students would like to broaden their understanding/knowledge on an area of the curriculum then they are more than welcome to do so.
This is a brilliant opportunity for students to demonstrate a passion in a particular subject area when applying for universities and in job interviews.
Students will undertake 120 guided learning hours and will complete a 5000-6000-word essay. This project will also achieve UCAS points and is a qualification that is acknowledged by all UK universities.
