Welcome

This is the start of the next phase of your educational journey. In fact, it is the most important yet and an essential bridge to university life and beyond.

The Sixth Form experience is rightly described as the best that education has to offer. You will experience a greater freedom and enjoy studying subjects that genuinely interest you, in smaller classes, while forming more mature relationships with your teachers who will support you every step of the way.

Pastoral Care

Pastoral

Pastoral support and guidance is of paramount importance in the Sixth Form because we aim to bring out the very best in you. We seek to cultivate a friendly, mutually supportive and aspirational environment in which you’re valued as an individual. The Sixth Form is big enough to be vibrant, yet small enough to be intimate – so that we get to know you personally.
