A Warm Welcome to OUR Sixth Form

We are proud of our inclusive and welcoming Sixth Form for which community, culture and curriculum are the core foundations for every decision we make. It is our ambition that every student succeeds both personally and academically and we do this well because of the relationships we build and the expectations we set.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum with over 30 subjects to choose from and a range
of qualification types including A Levels and Vocational course options. Students have the
opportunity to engage with an Extended Project Qualification in Year 13 to further support their
ambitions beyond post-16 education, and we strive to ensure that every student’s needs are
met by offering a bespoke approach to building personalised qualification programmes for all.
In addition to a thriving curriculum offer, we are passionate about our extra-curricular provision
which includes volunteering, termly Sixth Form Social events, Sport and Creative Art clubs and
a host of outreach opportunities with local businesses and universities; these are just some of
the opportunities available to our Year 12 and 13 students.

Set within the Sixth Form Centre, we are committed to ensuring a culture of high aspiration
and expectation for the entire learning community. Our learning spaces have a modern
edge and promote a mature approach to post-16 learning. With an entire PC suite
dedicated to independent study, as well as a beautiful and studious library, a study gallery
and resource centre, students are given every chance to conduct well-planned and
successful independent study time in support of their studies. We deliver a tailored Personal
Development Programme (PDP), comprising of a bespoke PSHE curriculum as well as Careers,
Employability and Finance to ensure that our students leave us prepared to make bold strides
in the world beyond compulsory education.

Pastoral Care sits at the very heart of all that we do. We believe in enabling and supporting
our students to be holistically successful in order to thrive and we achieve this through the
development and nurture of respectful relationships between the Sixth Form staff team and
students. We advocate the culture of a collaborative community, promoted by student voice
which directly informs decision making across the Sixth Form, and we continue to celebrate
the successes of our cohesive approach through excellent results, working relationships with
both present students and alumni, and an undeniable buzz that warms the Sixth Form Centre
