Teaching & Learning

The dedicated Sixth Form area of our £36m building provides the best facilities for gaining an excellent post 16 education. Independent study is encouraged in the Sixth Form common room and Academy library and all Sixth Form students have access to laptops and our secure WiFi network.

We adapt our curriculum annually to ensure that the courses we offer are tailored to our students’ needs and aspirations. Each year we ask our students which subjects they want to study and build our curriculum around their answers.

Form tutors frequently mentor each of their students on a one to one basis to give constructive feedback, guidance, support and advice. Progress reviews are also held twice a year with the student, parent and a member of the Sixth Form leadership team. This individual care and support ensures students overcome any barriers to learning and development.

Students are also assisted to engage in professional work placements during their time in Sixth Form.
