ACADEMIC LIFE

The Sixth Form has established a formidable academic reputation as a centre of excellence. Our students are supported to become independent learners and are provided with guidance and advice to manage their own time effectively. We closely monitor each student’s academic progress and effort and are quick to respond if students fall below expectations. Independent study time will be supervised if necessary.

We provide a broad, balanced and stimulating education which enables students to excel academically. Inspirational teachers, small classes, a traditional yet caring environment and enthusiastic, ambitious students lead to outstanding academic achievement. We strive to foster a love of learning and encourage all students to reach their full potential at A-level. The majority of our students achieve a place at their first choice university.
