Sixth Form Curriculum and Pathways
Our key aim is to support our Sixth Form students to become well-rounded, highly skilled and well-qualified young adults, in an environment where they are encouraged to become increasingly self-reliant and independent. We pride ourselves on supporting our students in making the right choices as they join the Sixth Form and in preparation for their next steps once they have completed their Level 3 qualifications through our 'Unifrog' programme.
