Our Sixth Form offers a traditional academic curriculum focused on a broad range of A Level qualifications combined with other enrichment opportunities. We offer a full range of enrichment courses and activities including sports, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme and our ‘Passport for Life’ personal development programme.
In the Sixth Form students are encouraged to use their skills and abilities to support other students in the school and to help the local community. Training is available for students who wish to take on specific roles including antibullying, learning support or progress mentoring. Our Subject Fellows programme enables students who are passionate about their chosen subjects to work with the subject staff to develop additional opportunities for others. We offer a range of other leadership opportunities including prefects, sports captains and the Sixth Form Executive and Leadership Team. Students are encouraged to engage with undergraduate study by participating in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).
Our Sixth Form Centre provides an excellent environment for study and personal development including teaching rooms, social space and independent study facilities. A 250 seat lecture theatre provides a focal point for a wide range of public events including talks from leading professionals. Sixth Form students have supervised independent study space in the Library and the Sixth Form Centre and there are other areas of the school in which they can work collaboratively. A wireless system covers the whole school and students can bring their own devices to use or opt into our lease/purchase scheme for iPads.
