The students achieve these results through a combination of ability, hard work, superb teaching and the unstinting support they receive. The strong tutorial system in the Sixth Form closely supports the students with their studies and their personal development. We look after them, monitor them closely and offer an array of strategies to help them if they are struggling and to enable them to achieve the highest possible marks and grades. The ways in which students can extend their academic experience are numerous and varied, with initiatives in place, such as the Extended Project Qualification and the 4000 word Extended Essay Competition.
However good their final results are, A Levels and BTECs are no longer enough. To get into the top universities or gain one of the highly competitive apprenticeship programmes, students need a range of skills, achievements and interpersonal skills. The Sixth Form aims to equip them for the challenges ahead and offers a diversity of experiences that are fun, stimulating and useful.
Our Sixth Form Centre offers a modern and dynamic environment for our Sixth Formers, featuring a 150 seater university-style lecture theatre, six teaching rooms, an Apple media suite, a Costa-style coffee shop in our central atrium area, a contemporary common room and quiet study areas. The Centre is specifically designed to complement the School’s existing facilities, giving our senior students more independence, status and technologically advanced facilities.
