Sixth Form

Sixth Form


Some Sixth Forms are too much like school. Some colleges are too impersonal. Here at KBA we offer the best of both worlds. Students have the freedom to express themselves as young adults, whilst still receiving all the support and guidance they were used to up to the age of 16. We have fantastic facilities at KBA which give Sixth form students their own area but still allow them to access the support of the whole school community. Our house system is the foundation of all of school life ranging from; the pastoral care, support, extra-curricular activities and leadership experience and a range of 6th form and whole school inter-house competitions.

We realise that moving in to the Sixth form can be a daunting experience for students and their parents but here at KBA we have well-established procedures that make the process of moving onto Sixth Form courses as smooth as possible, whether you are joining us from another school, college or our own Year 11.

We are very proud of our Sixth Form students and invest significantly to give them the very best experience possible at KBA. Our dedicated teachers support our Sixth Form students both academically and pastorally. We know the aspirations of every student are different, and so our tutoring and pastoral systems will ensure that your individual needs are fully met. Our highly experienced team also ensures that each and every student has a wealth of opportunities available to them beyond the taught curriculum with numerous extra-curricular activities and leadership opportunities on offer. This ensures that students are fully prepared to apply for aspirational universities or jobs once they complete their sixth form studies here at KBA
