Sixth Form

Higher education is critical to developing the specialised skills and learning the inner workings of your chosen subjects - Overtake the rest: begin your journey toward becoming the best of the best.

And so the end of term has arrived, students have successfully worked through the first 8 weeks of their first or second year of A levels, and have completed over 140 hours of timetabled lessons. So far this term, the Sixth Form team and cabinet have been working hard putting together charity events, bringing in outside speakers and making sure that all students are working to their full potential.

Our “Woman in Black” fright night raised over £200 for the KS5 charity Safe Anaesthesia International, alongside our first charity bake sale.

Over 40 Sixth Form students have trained to mentor and support younger students across the school, creating student bonds ranging from KS3 through to KS5.  During weekly assemblies the Sixth Form has showcased successes, as well as bringing in speakers such as Chris Target from CXK to talk about careers and further education. Now they're putting together an assembly on Hurricane Matthew to raise awareness on global issues across the world.

I wish everyone a good break and hope to see you all ready for the next term in two weeks time.
