Our industrious, friendly Sixth Form is the natural choice for students as they prepare for university or employment with all the benefits that our school has to offer. Our Sixth Form Centre is bright and welcoming with its own teaching, study and recreation areas and our students are always involved in exciting extra-curricular activities and social events. Students are expected to make a commitment to the life of the school by serving as important role models for the younger pupils. The Sixth Form curriculum is flexible and wide ranging, including vocational courses as well as A and AS levels. Our students benefit from the highest standard of pastoral care, with a comprehensive tutorial and careers programme, including full support for university applications.
