Our Sixth Form is a thriving, effective and successful part of the school. The majority of our Year 11 students continue with their education at Post 16 and most of these remain in our Sixth Form. They are attracted by the community spirit, the care, guidance and support and the high success rates of our students. The Sixth Form is a vibrant and friendly community of students where high expectations, ambition and a ‘can do’ attitude are important.
We offer a range of A-Level subjects as well as BTEC Level 3 courses. We are part of the East Federation which means students can study other subjects at nearby Sixth Forms.
The Sixth Form has its own purpose-built centre with a large common room, its own kitchen, and adjoining computer-based study area. The large school library is also accessible for Post 16 students.
The Enrichment Programme (considered outstanding by Ofsted) allows students to develop many personal skills essential for their future careers and university education. For example First Aid, Human Rights, Duke of Edinburgh and many others. Students have access to many opportunities to develop themselves through placements, work experience, and shadowing. Also a four day residential visit to Aberystwyth University ‘kick starts’ the university application process and provides a valuable experience so that students understand the demands of university life.
