Post 16 Extension Courses and Enrichment

We offer our students a range of enrichment opportunities to complement their academic studies; developing personal qualities, aptitudes and new life skills are all a fundamental part of education at Cedars Martin.

Extended Project Qualification

A number of our students take the opportunity to pursue their own personal study during Post 16 and gain an additional qualification. They research a question, produce a report and then give a presentation to a panel. The EPQ is led by an English teacher who specialises in research and literature.

Reading & Maths Support Programmes

We offer our students the opportunity to support younger students with their maths and literacy skills during tutor time. There are also opportunities for students to support children in our feeder primary schools in developing their maths and literacy skills.

National Citizen Service

We actively encourage our students to complete the National Citizen Service programme and work with NCS to run bespoke programmes in term time for our Post 16 learners.


Students can take part in several societies such as, Musical Theatre, Chess Club and Debating Club. Students also have the ability, with the help of our Student Support Centre, to create societies that they and their peers would like to take part in.

Post 16 International Community Project

We offer an international opportunity for students to work in our partner school in Ghana. This invaluable life changing expedition provides students with the chance to develop as inspirational young leaders and to inform their choices beyond Post-16.

The build-up phase and expedition enables students to develop valuable life skills as they serve our partner school through charity work, project management and the promotion of literacy. Local Ghanaian people believe that learning is key to overcoming poverty and our students will be vital in realising this vision. Students also become part of the local community where they will be able to share knowledge of language, culture, religion, music, family values and local cuisine. Students also experience highlights such as a sun-rise safari.
