Life in the Sixth Form
Our vision: To raise aspirations by nurturing positivity and responsibility through developing a passion for learning, enriching the student experience and securing achievements which exceed expectations.
Transition from Year 11 is well supported and our Post -16 teaching and learning provision provides you with every opportunity to successfully progress into higher education, further education employment or training.
Sixth Formers are prominent role models within our academy community supporting a wide range of academy initiatives. Our aim is to enhance the wider key skills of our students, through developing them both personally and academically, into mature, well-rounded, caring and confident citizens equipped for the challenges that lie ahead of them.
We are committed to ensuring the success of every student and have a dedicated team of staff, led by Mrs Davies, Director of Sixth Form and Mr C. Bott our Sixth Form Achievement Leader. Each student has a personal tutor who meets students on a daily basis and acts as a mentor 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.
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.
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.
Sixth Form Dress Code
The Dress code is designed to support students both in upholding their responsibilities, both as a role model and in being dignified and not causing offence/embarrassment to others. It is also intended to ensure that dress is appropriate for a working environment and to support their personal safety. It forms a part of the Code of Responsibility.
