Sixth Form Prospectus: sixth-form-prospectus-pdf-version

Entering the Sixth form is a new and exciting stage in a young person’s life; a time to learn new skills and to develop self-confidence, to develop both intellectually and personally.  It provides an opportunity to learn and practice independence and self-discipline, which will both be essential in higher education and in the world of work.

Our Sixth Formers work in a friendly, but work focused environment.  Great importance is attached to the relationship that the students share with both their teachers and their form tutors who monitor progress, oversee their personal development and prepare them for the next stage of their lives, whether that is university, college or the workplace.

The Sixth Form offers a range of courses and experiences. Alongside a comprehensive A level offering, we have BTEC courses to fully support students for whom A levels are not the preferred option.   Our sixth formers have an impressive history of gaining outstandingly good results and then making a successful transition into higher education or employment.  It is a special feature of the Sixth Form that they also contribute so much to school life along the way.

We are exceptionally proud of the results of our former students.  Three of our students achieved top marks and were in the top five students in the country for English Literature. Next year five of our students will be attending Cambridge University.   Every year a high percentage of our students achieve a place at university, and we wish all of students every success with the next stage of their chosen career paths and look forward to watching their progress.

Finally, we would like to assure our own students and students anticipating entry from elsewhere that we are here to help you make realistic and appropriate choices.   For students currently studying elsewhere, please come along and meet us.  Our Sixth Formers will be glad to give you a guided tour of the school and we will be happy to discuss all aspects of the Sixth Form with you.

We are very pleased to receive applications from students who can benefit from our courses and we look forward to helping your progress.
