You can start working towards your Oakleaf Diploma at the end of Year 11, prior to starting the Sixth Form at Leighton Park. The long holiday after GCSE exams provides an excellent gap for you to undertake activities that you can count towards your award.
Gather plenty of evidence as you progress through the Lower Sixth and submit a presentation to the Head of Sixth Form by the last day of the Summer Term so that your submission can be assessed over the holidays.
Awards will be announced in Collect with the best submissions shared at the Scholars’ Award Ceremony during the Autumn term of your Upper Sixth.
Bronze – involved in school supported opportunities and made the most of all LP has to offer
Silver – benefitted from independently gained experiences and self-organised activities
Gold – exceptional applications which evidence going above and beyond in all aspects of the award
The Oakleaf Diploma offers three levels of recognition, Bronze, Silver and Gold, which celebrate the degree of achievement that you have obtained through your successful completion of the Sixth Form programme.
