Super Curriculum Skills and Futures (SCSF)

In order to develop our students’ interests beyond the academic subjects they are studying, the college runs the SCSF programme. Students studying 3 A-levels need to accrue 80 SCSF hours, while students studying 4 A-levels need to accrue 30 SCSF hours per academic year.

These hours can be gained from activities offered by the college or from personal interests, club membership or voluntary work pursued away from college.

Below are some examples of the opportunities offered by the college:

  • Duke of Edinburgh Silver and Gold Awards
  • New York and Washington DC trip
  • London Law trip
  • London Literature trip
  • Royal Opera House visit to watch Traviata
  • Geography Field trips
  • Vocal Festival
  • Earth Summit Team events
  • Netball training and tournaments
  • Yoga

  • Y12 Extended Qualification Project
  • University of East Anglia EPQ Conference

  • Drop in revision sessions
  • Author visits, including Julia Edwards, Manjeet Mann and Matt Dickinson
  • Judging books for the Excelsior Award
  • DSFC Goodreads Challenge

Students take responsibility for documenting and tracking their hours, which are then shared with their personal tutors.
