All students who choose to apply to university will be fully supported through the UCAS process. We offer a weekly Job Club to enhance employability prospects of those who don’t want to continue their education after Sixth Form, including an in-depth look at apprenticeship opportunities.
Our Sixth Form is not just about academic qualifications. We offer students a wide range of enrichment opportunities. These include accredited courses such as First Aid and Sports Leadership. All students participate in a Personal Development Programme and have the chance to experience work placements and work with those in the lower years. Students are encouraged to become increasingly independent and to develop the personal skills they will need for further study, employment and life.
For students that meet the eligibility criteria, we operate the government’s 16-19 bursary scheme and applications are considered throughout a student’s time in Sixth Form. Students can make use of this to purchase a vast range of educational resources including text books, visits and laptops.
We have great Sixth Form facilities including a common room and our own private, fully equipped study room. We also have a designated Sixth Form Learning Mentor to support learning where it is required. We have extremely high expectations of all students in our Sixth Form and reward those that meet these.
