About Our Sixth Form

Year 12 students are in full-time education
They take 4 subjects and have a pastoral programme in place as part of a tutor group.

Students attend school for the whole day
They are in lessons 75% of the time; 25% is used for independent study

Students are guided and supported
Students use the services of the school’s Careers Advisor; not many schools are so fortunate. Miss Hamilton helps students to explore their options regarding university or work, and she helps with applications and CV writing. Miss Hamilton also helps students with an application for financial support in the form of 16-19 bursaries.

Students draw on the experience of tutors and teachers. One of our key strengths is that many of our Sixth Formers have come up through the school from year 7 and have build strong relationships with their teachers. We are proud, of the fact that our teachers really care and go the extra mile for the students, to help them overcome any obstacles and make them succeed. We take a genuine interest in the person behind the student, and in their well-being.
