The Academy is keen to encourage as many students as possible to continue their education beyond the age of 16.

Students already enrolled are entitled to transfer to the Sixth Form providing they meet the published standards for entry.

We also welcome students from outside the Academy, offering them the very highest standards of educational support in a friendly and supportive environment.
Applications for admission to the Academy have significantly increased and places on courses are competitive. Whilst we will do our best to give a place to you on your chosen course we recommend you apply early to avoid disappointment. If there is a situation where the Academy Sixth Form is oversubscribed applicants whose permanent address is closest will be admitted.
We invite you to see and experience the Academy for yourself at one of our special ‘Sixth Form’ open evenings. Meet staff and students, see our facilities and find out which courses are best suited for you.

Ready To Apply?

I chose to study at Accrington Academy due to the success, opportunities and enjoyment I was offered whilst at the Academy from Year 7 to 11. I thoroughly enjoyed studying at the Academy and gained relationships with my teachers that I couldn’t have had anywhere else – they always go above what they need to for us all. I achieved well academically, however, the enrichment and opportunities I was given were outstanding and I was hoping that these chances would carry on at the Sixth Form, which didn’t disappoint!
