Life in the Sixth Form
Your transition from Year 11 will be well supported and our Post -16 teaching and learning provision will provide you with every opportunity to successfully progress into higher education, employment or training.
We are committed to ensuring the success of every student and have a dedicated team of staff, led by Mrs Davies-Hadley, Director of Sixth Form. Each student is assigned a personal Post -16 mentor who meets students on a daily basis, providing constant advice and guidance.
Student progress is continually monitored through regular assessment to ensure they are meeting their targets and therefore on course to achieve their potential.
All our staff take enormous pride in working with our students. We believe that Sixth Formers are very important to our academy community as they provide the tone for the academy.
Sixth Form Facilities
Our Sixth Form centre has been designed to help students develop the research and independence skills needed for their studies as well as being a crucial skill to acquire for life beyond school. The centre has a dedicated study area and sixth form teaching rooms which can also be used for personalised learning opportunities. The academy has excellent ICT facilities which incorporates state-of-the-art technology to complement learning and teaching.
We encourage them to take responsibility within school and the local community. Our aim is to help them develop, both personally and academically, into mature, well-rounded, caring and confident citizens equipped for the challenges that lie ahead of them.
Sixth Form students are role models for the rest of the academy and are required to uphold and embody the standards expected of them. Students in the Sixth Form must consistently maintain appropriate personal standards of dress.
“The Sixth Form, which was rated ‘good’ by Ofsted this year, celebrated its best ever A-level results in the summer. In the last two years, both A-level and vocational results have improved by an average of one and a half grades. The percentage of students gaining 3 A*-E grades at A Level has doubled over the last two years.”
