Here at Rainhill, we take progression routes really seriously and therefore our progression advice starts on Day 1 of Year 12! On Day 1 of Year 12, the Super curriculum and work experience will be introduced to you as two key concepts of being a Rainhill student and also being prepared for your future.
What is the Super Curriculum?
The Super Curriculum is about developing you as an independent learner, a diligent learner and a rounded learner. It is about your going out and learning and developing more in terms of your subject and your passion! From reading journals and professional newspapers related to your subject or career, to completing MOOCs, going on trips, taking part in extra activities or listening to lectures and talks from University professors, the Super Curriculum aims to make you a Super student, ready to apply for whatever progression point you wish.

Work experience is also offered in Years 12 and 13. Alison Anders (YSM) is in charge of Work experience. A database of placements is stored in the student shared drive and Alison is there for support and advice about what is available and how to apply. Students are asked to arrange work experience around their formal learning and are encouraged to use Wednesday afternoons to complete this. Students need to fill in and return an official work experience form to Alison once a placement is found.
Some examples of work experience our students have done in the past are:
