Sixth Form Community Placement Programme
What is it?
At Bordesley Green Girls’ Sixth Form we want our students to not only achieve academically but to also leave at the end of Year 13 as responsible young adults who understand the value of giving something back to their community. The Community Placement Programmes provides students an opportunity to dedicate a minimum of one hour per fortnight to volunteering within the school and local community.
