Welcome to the Sixth Form
The Sixth Form years are the most exciting and inspiring phase of your school education.
We believe in developing the whole individual by providing opportunities to pursue ambitions, interests and passions and develop skills and talents. There is a strong sense of community amongst our Sixth Form and our students thrive in a welcoming and purposeful learning environment, which enables them to transform into confident, well-rounded individuals with the character and skill set to succeed in the next stage of their lives.
All Sixth form students have a designated tutor who offers both academic and pastoral care. Further to this, our Sixth Former's enjoy an environment in which they experience the right balance of independence, challenge and supportive guidance. We are proud that our Sixth Form is able to facilitate students in successfully achieving the grades to study competitive courses such as Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Sciences. We also have a long history of our Sixth form students being able to gain places to study at top universities including both Oxford and Cambridge.
We are delighted with our 2015 results where our students achieved excellent results; our A-level pass rate was 99.4%, with 52% of our learners achieving A*-B grades and a fantastic 25% at A*-A grades. We also proud to share with you our 100% pass rate in a staggering 26 individual A-Level subjects.
Our BTEC courses continued their three year trend of 100% pass rate with the vast majority of our students achieving top grades.
We are committed to making your two years in the Sixth form an enriching and rewarding experience and I look forward to welcoming you.
