Sixth form

“Our sixth form is a thriving learning community with a curriculum to match the needs of all our students.

We pride ourselves on the excellent outcomes that our sixth form students achieve, both in terms of their exam results and their destinations, which include leading universities.

Value added at A-level is among the best in the area and our most recent Ofsted report rated our sixth form as ‘Good’. 

It is no surprise that our numbers have increased rapidly in recent years. 

We take pains to construct a highly personalised academic package to meet the needs of every individual student, with each sixth former receiving tailored guidance and pastoral support.

We are dedicated to shaping young lives and to ensuring that all of our students aim high to reach their full potential.”

Pastoral care

The heart of our philosophy is that every individual counts; each sixth former is known, cared for, and offered regular guidance and advice.

Our Head of Sixth Form is supported by a Deputy Head of Sixth Form and Sixth Form Support Officer, creating a strong team of staff leading the development and running of our sixth form.

Students have a designated tutor who works with them on a daily basis, supporting them through all stages of their post-16 journey and onto their next steps.

The sixth form team works holistically, supporting all students to achieve their full potential in their post-16 studies; monitoring their academic progress, removing any barriers to learning and ensuring the wellbeing of each individual. We are committed to providing the best outcomes for all of our students. 


Applications for the 2022-23 sixth form are now open.
