Students in Sixth Form are challenged to meet their academic potential and fulfil their ambitions and aspirations. Your progress and well-being are important to us and we will do everything we can to ensure that you make your time here as enjoyable and productive as possible.

The Sixth Form benefit from their own Advanced Study Centre. There are quiet study spaces in the Library Rooms, the bookable Meeting Room for group work or The Hub for a more relaxed study space.As well as this Study Centre many departments offer Sixth Form only study areas. Our science laboratories, art rooms, music, multi-media suites and performance spaces have all been specifically designed to support your learning.

We do have a Dress Code for Post 16, this is to foster a sense of identity and community, it shows us a separate from the Main School but still part of a wider network. The Dress Code has been consulted upon with the student body and is reviewed regularly.
