Sixth Form 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.

Sixth Form Outcomes

We are proud of the success that our Sixth Form students achieve.  This has continued to improve year on year.  Whilst there were no public examinations in 2020, the results that our students were awarded would have been deemed to have been above the national average.

Post-18 Pathways Support  

As they start their Sixth Form journey, we are passionate about supporting our students to start to plan for life after they have completed their school studies.  We run a very successful 'Ace Level 3' programme which maps out two year's worth of activities that we deliver so that students are guided and informed when making their decisions.  This programme includes: UCAS Personal Statement Workshops and 1:1 advice: Apprenticeship Workshops; university visits; a Careers Fair;  1:1 sessions with our Independent Careers Advisor; CV Writing Workshops; mock interviews;and  a Study Skills programme.  Included in this is a wide range engagement opportunities with our business partners.
