Our mission is to equip students with the knowledge, skills and qualifications they need for the future. Our aim is to ensure that our pupils succeed academically and that they also become responsible, informed citizens who can make positive contribute to British society. We strive to ensure that all pupils aspire to reach their full potential and set themselves ambitious goals for the future.
A range of programmes of study are available to our sixth form pupils to cater for a wide range of interests and aspirations. These range from a mixed timetable of A level and BTEC qualifications to purely academic (i.e. A levels) or a purely vocational (i.e. BTEC qualifications) pathway. In addition to the core academic or vocational subjects that a pupil studies, a wide range of enrichment and personal develop opportunities are on offer.
A Levels and BTEC qualifications place significant demands on pupils in terms of the need to become independent and responsible learners whilst at the same time maturing as a person. We therefore invest heavily in the pastoral support that we provide our students. In addition to the Sixth Form Team, a team of Key Stage 5 Subject Leaders work together to ensure that each pupil is supported in achieving excellence. Regular assemblies and a tailored programme of seminars and personal development days provide pupils the additional support they require to succeed. There are specific programmes in place to support students applying to competitive University courses and for students applying to apprenticeships.
