Sixth Form

Welcome to Foxford Sixth Form!

We know that the choice you make regarding your education after year 11 is vitally important. Whether you are joining us from our own Year 11, or coming to us from another school, we promise you an exciting and rewarding Post 16 experience here at Foxford.

Foxford Sixth Form is about helping students develop into young adults ready for the next life stage. This is our central purpose. For the first time you get to choose your own curriculum and destination. In the short space of two years, a journey takes place from GCSEs to going to university, the work place or an apprenticeship.

We are immensely proud of our academic record at A level and Btec Level 3 and the exciting destinations our students reach. We have a strong track record of students going to study a range of exciting subjects at Oxbridge as well as Russell Group universities. Some of our students also go on to prestigious apprenticeships.

We are very proud of the high levels of support and guidance we offer. We are focussed on developing our students as well-rounded people alongside the academic success. Our enrichment programme is phenomenal and really sets our students apart. Opportunities include first-aid qualifications, skills development with Coventry Building Society, mental health awareness, fitness and Duke of Edinburgh.

Partnership working is at the heart of our provision, we have a talented post-16 leadership and tutor team and work closely with our students and their families. Our expectations are high and contribute to our excellent outcomes. Working with other stakeholders, we also provide University Opportunities: Oxford and Cambridge Student Conference, Realising Opportunities, Routes to Professions, Lab Experience Day, Summer Schools, three day revision boot camp, Law Taster Day, Campus Tour, UCAS Convention as well as conferences and masterclasses through the Universities of Warwick and Birmingham and links with UHCW – 3 day Career as a doctor and volunteering placements.

 “Opportunities for all learners to develop fully their personal, social and employability skills are planned systematically. External programmes such as Nuffield Bursaries, Routes to Professions and Realising Opportunities are being used to raise aspirations and increase the progress of the most-able learners.“ Ofsted

Throughout the prospectus you will see the range of opportunities and possibilities open to you.

Whether you’ve got a chosen career in mind or still have no idea, Foxford 6th Form is a place where you can build on your existing skills, learn new ones and prepare for adult life in many different ways.

We look forward to meeting you.

16-19 Tuition Fund

In order to support small group tuition for students aged 16 to 19, in Maths, English and other subjects where learning has been disrupted, the government has granted some funding. Following the government guidelines, we are prioritising year 12 students who have not yet achieved a grade 4 in Maths or English. As a result, we are now able to provide 3 hours of specialist teaching in both subjects for the whole academic year.

Additionally, for eligible students in years 12 and 13 students we are providing additional bespoke 1-1 support to support their study skills and progress in a number of vocational and academic subjects.

We are also providing additional training for year 12 tutors to deliver a 1-1 mentoring programme to support students to close gaps, build independence and work towards aspirational targets in their subject areas.

We have also sourced a seminar from Elevate for Year 12 students to support them with examination skills and techniques, a key gap following the cancellation of formal examinations last year.

Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)

The Extended Project was developed with the intention of:

  • Strengthening the programmes of study for 16-19 year olds by testing a wider range of skills
  • Providing a ‘tool kit’ of skills that better prepares students for higher education and employment

The Extended Project comprises a single piece of work, of a student’s choosing, that shows evidence of planningpreparationresearch and autonomous working

Course Overview

The project you choose to do can be about anything from stem cell research to media phone hacking, the possibility of life on other planets to footballers wages. All you will need to do is to make sure that they can research enough information to produce a 5000 word project.


  • Identify, design, plan and complete an individual project, applying organisational skills and strategies to meet stated objectives
  • Obtain and select information from a range of sources, analyse data, apply relevantly and demonstrate understanding of any appropriate linkages, connections and complexities of the topic
  • Select and use a range of skills, including new technologies (where appropriate), to:
    • solve problems
    • take decisions critically, creatively and flexibly
    • achieve planned outcomes
  • Evaluate outcomes – including own learning and performance
  • Select and use a range of communication skills & media to convey and present evidenced outcomes and conclusions

Skills development

  • Time management
  • Research and evaluation of sources
  • Report writing
  • Referencing and bibliography creation
  • Presentation
  • Reflection and evaluation

You will also need to complete a report showing your initial planning, a project outline, a mid-project review, and an end of project review, a summary of the project, a record of your presentation and reflections on the project.


The EPQ is marked internally using the mark scheme and a sample is externally verified by the exam board. There are four assessment objectives looking at planning, using resources, developing the project and review. It enables you to develop the higher level of research skills which you will need in the world of work or as an undergraduate. It can be used to enhance a UCAS application i.e. If you are interested in a degree in Physics, they can do your project based on a specific hypothesis. It is worth up to 70 UCAS points.

EPQ Intervention

For KS5 EPQ, extensive intervention is put in place to ensure all students reach their potential. These sessions are held by staff before and after school to compliment the work undertaken in tutorials. Tutorials take place during personal study and enrichment time.
