A Unique Study Experience
Our vision is to cultivate an independent learning community where each pupil feels a sense of belonging; motivated and determined to make the most of every opportunity.
The exceptional quality of our pastoral care ensures that time in our Sixth Form is spent productively, whilst being successful, fulfilling and enjoyable. Together, we work towards promoting progress, by providing an enriching, engaging and challenging study programme.
We are proud to offer five hours per week of teaching for each A-Level subject studied, as well as dedicated co-curricular time for pupils to get involved in a variety of clubs and activities.
We regularly achieve in the region of 96% of all pupils gaining entry into their first-choice university, as well as having managed to secure places on competitive apprenticeships with companies such as Siemens and BAE Systems.
Sixth Form study is challenging but immensely rewarding. The expectation is that our pupils will become increasingly enterprising and emerge as skilled, knowledgeable and competent independent learners.
Preparation for the Future
All pupils are entered for the highly regarded Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) where they independently choose a topic and question to research, write up and present. Frequently, students choose to focus on an area of personal interest that is directly relevant to their Higher Education subject choice and which helps demonstrate their interest and commitment as well as developing their specialist vocabulary and knowledge.
Providing a curriculum that is rich in academic rigour, breadth and variety is essential. We offer an extensive choice of A-Level courses as well as vocational options for students with the introduction of BTECs in Travel and Tourism, and Music, CTEC Business and a Level 3 Certificate/Diploma in Food Science and Nutrition.
We are confident that with our broad and inclusive curriculum for Post-16 study, as well as specialist teachers and outstanding academic and pastoral support, we can meet the needs and requirements of each and every one of our pupils.
The majority of our pupils go on to study at a Russell Group or Oxbridge university. We aim to ensure our pupils have the support, skills and grades needed to meet the requirements of the highest-ranked universities in the UK, and around the world.
