Higham Lane
Sixth Form


Our Sixth Form students’ timetables are designed to meet the requirements of each individual learner. Most students choose to follow a programme of three subjects in Year 12, although a few select four. The timetable is structured around the combination of courses students have chosen. Students are required to retake Mathematics or English Language if they have not secured a 4 in either at GCSE. We deliver a wide range of courses taught by expert staff with an ongoing commitment to quality and excellence. Our staff are always willing to go the extra mile to provide additional support where needed. Well-developed tracking, monitoring and target setting systems ensure that students and parents/carers know how well they are doing and understand how they can progress further. There is a strong focus on skills development, independent study and in-depth learning. In addition to taught lessons, students are expected to undertake additional reading and research into each chosen course. Academic Tutors and teachers are also available to advise on references and wider reading. Students follow a bespoke careers programme over the two years. This ensures positive outcomes for all.
