Higher Education

Most of our Sixth Formers go on to university. We offer students expert advice and guidance when they make their choice of course and university. We organise visits to H.E. Fairs and university open days and we have excellent links with universities. We run many sessions to support students when making their applications. We also provide advice, guidance and assistance for students who have decided not to apply for University. Pupil will have access to Unifrog, the number one online platform for Post 18 destinations.

Pre-U

As part of our electives programme, we also provide the Cambridge Pre-U which is an exciting post 16 qualification that prepares students to make a success of their subsequent studies at University. 

Form Mentor & Support

You will have a form mentor who will provide regular support and advice every morning and afternoon. Student progress is carefully monitored and appropriate action will be taken to deal with any under- achievement by mentors, sixth form team and learning mentors

General Education / Perspectives

Sixth Formers follow a course in Citizenship, designed to complement their other studies. This course will help students develop important skills and provide them with the knowledge and understanding to help them become active and responsible citizens in society. 

Private & Independent Study Periods

All our Sixth Form students are timetabled for private and independent study periods during the school day. Students do not have ‘free periods’. It is our belief that students should at all times be engaging in meaningful learning and using their time during the school day to improve their scholarship. We support them by providing them with the resources and space to become the best academics they can be.
