Making the right transition between school and college is a significant step in any young person’s life. Much rests on the results of this two year period and so it is important that you choose an establishment that will offer you the chance to shine academically and offer opportunities and challenges that will help to develop your character, provide social experiences and promote a sense of wellbeing and emotional stability. Well rounded students go on to gain excellent grades and we firmly believe that these qualities are best cultivated in a small but excellent Sixth Form and one in which you’re a name and not a number. Ofsted have deemed us as an ‘Outstanding School’ where we offer lessons which are challenging, innovative and thought provoking; translating into excellent A-level grades.
We recognise that students need more than just good grades, especially within the current competitive climate for university places and jobs. Further opportunities within our Sixth Form include:
* The prestigious and unique Career Ready Programme.
* Subject specific trips.
* Classes in social etiquette and public speaking.
* Sign Language/Lifeguarding/Fitness Instructing qualifications.
* An annual trip abroad and a foreign exchange.
* A personal tutor.
* Sporting fixtures.
* Support with UCAS and Apprenticeship applications
* An extensive enrichment programme.
* A programme of social events.
The majority of our students progress onto university and are able to access some of the top universities in the country. Our dedicated and committed teaching staff, combined with the ever-growing aspirations of our students is what sets us apart.
Thank you for considering our Sixth Form.
