Making an informed choice

All Year 11 students are undertaking the most important decision/choice in their education: what should I do at sixth form/FE/post 16. The pathway students choose now and the institution they select will significantly affect their opportunities and career in the future. A level and Level 3 subject choice and their final grades will ultimately determine their career pathways, be that university choices, or higher and degree apprenticeships. Therefore, it is crucial that they make an informed choice, considering all the factors that will support or limit their progress over the next two or three years. 

To support in the application process we are proud to share our Sixth Form 2022 prospectus, this will be launched here after half term. This year we will be utilising a digital format, alongside physical printed versions of the specific subject information that will be available at our open evening. This allows us to embed easy links to additional information and resources to inform you further. Watch this space for videos from the various departments, talking about their subjects and what it means to look at the world through the lens of that particular specialism. We hope that this supports your decision-making process, however if you require additional information, a printed coy of the prospectus or would like to talk through your application to any of our courses and our Sixth Form please contact Mrs Emma Gallagher, Deputy Head Teacher, via email on

Once you have read the prospectus please consider the subjects that you wish to study and then submit your application using the form. Applications will open after the open evening on 24th November 2022.
