Welcome to our Sixth Form!
Welcome to our, and hopefully, your Sixth Form.
We hope our Sixth Form website gives you an idea of life at the Academy. It is really hard to try and put all the things we are proud of onto these pages. We know we have a great school with a wide range of courses, excellent teachers, fantastic facilities and loads of opportunities to do well. We love the small class sizes, friendly environment, enrichment activities and ethos of self-improvement and success. You will have free access to our gym and 25m swimming pool, as well as our 25ft climbing wall. We also love the fact that students are really involved in shaping our Sixth Form life. Each student brings their own story, experience and insight and together are creating a happy, thriving Academy.
We hope as you read through the information you want to come and visit us.
This is one route you do need to go down…
