Personal Development Programme

PDP adds another dimension to life in the Sixth Form at Hull Collegiate School. It is designed to allow students to broaden their experiences and capabilities, as well as acquire the skills and attributes that Universities and future employers are looking for, in addition to the academic qualifications.

The students get the opportunity to:

  • Demonstrate leadership and innovation through organising specialised workshop days. These have recently been led by students studying PE and Drama for Bellfield Primary
  • Encourage students who are less fortunate than themselves, by acting as role models and mentors; students currently
    volunteer at Ganton Special School. 
  • Mentor Key Stage 3 students at Hull Collegiate School through the academic mentoring programme in English and  mathematics. Lower Sixth also get the opportunity to act as mentors through the pastoral mentoring system for our Year 7 forms.

This initiative introduces the students to presenting to a panel, self-reflection, leadership, communication as well as enabling them to build and strengthen their personal CVs. Staff mentors will provide guidance and support throughout, helping the Sixth Formers to make progress and develop their skills associated with reflection and evaluation.
