We believe that our Sixth Form offers a unique and innovative educational experience. Our students are a lively, dynamic, and diverse group of young learners. The academy is incredibly proud of every single one of them.
We also take substantial pride in ensuring that all of our Sixth Form students have access to a high-quality academic education: class sizes are small, and the teaching is excellent.
We construct a highly personalised academic package for each of our students, and a number elect to study up to 4 subjects in their first year. There is also the opportunity to take the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) in a subject of their choosing. This is designed – alongside other enhanced learning opportunities – to academically stretch students, and develop vital research skills.
The Sixth Form is also numerically small enough for every single student to be known as an individual, and supported throughout their time with us. On entry to Year 12, students have an extended Induction Programme which is designed to smooth the transition from GCSE, and develop the important skills which underpin independent learning. The academic progress and pastoral welfare of each student is reviewed on a weekly basis, and support provided where necessary. An integral aspect of our ethos is to work closely and collaboratively with parents and carers, to ensure that our students fulfil their true potential.
In terms of pathways, the vast majority of our students obtain their desired university places, although there is also personalised support and guidance for those who wish to progress directly into employment.
Our Sixth Form is dedicated to shaping young lives, and I am always happy to answer any enquires from those who wish to consider joining this very special school community.
