6Xtra is our extra-curricular activity programme. With over 50 activities available, there is something for everyone. 6Xtra works around a students’ weekly academic timetable to enrich students’ learning and development. 6Xtra is a great opportunity to further an existing interest, take up a new challenge, make friends and have fun.
Our activities can contribute to personal and social development, whilst developing important skills such as commitment, good citizenship, initiative, leadership and team spirit, all of interest to employers and universities.
Our 6Xtra programme is split into four pathways
1. Leadership and Volunteering
You will develop your ability, knowledge and understanding of what it is to be an excellent leader. You will be able to volunteer in a variety of organisations and on projects both in Blackpool Sixth, and externally.
2. Performance and Excellence
Activities will enable you to develop further skills you already have and perform these in leagues, competitions and performances throughout the year. To see more information about our Sports Academies, please click here.
