For most students, Sixth Form is the best part of their time at school. You will be able to concentrate on the subjects that you find the most interesting, with more freedom to plan your time and more privileges and opportunities for leadership. We will be given greater ownership of your learning and progress as you transform into an independent learner.
Welcome from the Head of Sixth Form

Create your future
Your priority will be the subjects you have chosen to study.
