Open Evening

We were pleased to welcome students considering their future educational options to our Sixth Form Open Evening on Wednesday 8th November.

Our Sixth Form has grown dramatically over the last two years with a significant number of students now joining us from schools in the surrounding area. As part of this continued expansion, we are excited to be offering a wider range of vocational courses than ever before, to include Applied Business, Applied Law, BTEC Dance and many more.    

Our priority to you as a student is to work with you as an individual to enable you to fulfil your full potential and develop self-confidence. You will be challenged daily to enable you to achieve. 

When you join our Sixth Form you will be fully supported by a committed team of staff and your peers. With state of the art facilities and a dedicated corridor along with a common room and many study areas, you will be studying in a vibrant and dynamic environment.  
Recognising the importance of our students being fully informed in a fast changing world, the common room has many magazines and periodicals available to develop your learning across subject areas such as science, geography and law. 

As a Sixth Form student you will also benefit from a wide array of enrichment and development opportunities, including sporting activities, work experience, university trips and social events. You can expect excellent support with apprenticeship/job or UCAS applications, provided by specialist staff with proven success at helping students achieve places at Russell Group universities.  
Active involvement in our academic leadership and mentoring programme, working with different year groups within the academy, will help you to develop the skills and experience needed to support you in the future.
