Admissions - Sixth Form
Welcome to our Sixth Form
We are delighted that you have shown an interest in joining our increasingly popular Sixth Form. We offer high quality teaching, small class sizes, tailored mentoring programmes and staff who are committed to our students. Our school motto ‘Committed to Excellence’ is vital in the sixth form as our students continue their further studies, carry out work experience and apply for universities or prepare for the world of work.
Students will be provided opportunities and encouraged to play a role in the wider school community. We give responsibility to our older students to ensure they are positive role models for younger students and that they are prepared for life. Students will deliver assemblies for younger students, run clubs and activities, represent our school for open evenings and two students will be elected to be our school leaders. Students are challenged at every step to reach their full potential. Our school is not only driven by our passion for academic rigour, but also in developing our students’ life skills.
We are a specialist Sixth Form offering A Level subjects in the Sciences, Psychology, Law, Maths, Further Maths, Economics, Computer Science, Business and BTEC in Applied Science. This specialism has ensured that our students’ A Level progress rate is amongst the top 3% in the country and BTEC progress rate is in the top 2% nationally. Biology, Physics and BTEC Level 3 Applied Science were our stand-out subjects for student progression. The Department for Education gave our Sixth Form a Well Above Average progress score for the academic year 2022.
If you choose our Sixth Form for the next step on your academic journey, you will receive the highest level of academic and pastoral support in order to provide you with the springboard to future success.
