The 6th Form Academy allows our students to focus on their areas of study and develop their potential in the subjects they love. We offer our students A level, BTEC and Welsh Baccalaureate qualifications to provide them with the skills and knowledge they need to move on to University or full time employment, confident in their own abilities.
We teach a wide range of subjects to our 6th Form students from English, Maths and History to alternative options such as Mandarin, Psychology and Criminology.
Our 6th Formers are taught in a manner that is more like university style seminars with discussion encouraged by teachers who are experts in their subjects. We encourage our pupils to show responsibility and initiative by undertaking individual research and reading around their subjects in their own time. Some of this work pupils will be able to do in supervised study sessions during the school day. However, that isn’t to say they will be left to their own devices. The help and support of our team of experienced staff will be available to make sure our students reach their full potential.
We treat our 6th form pupils as adults and they are expected to take responsibility for both their studies and within our school community. All students are offered various opportunities to engage in work experience and are offered advice and support in choosing the next step that is right for them, whether that be further education in university or college or a move into the world of work.
