Upper Sixth Form

Welcome to Upper 6th Form! 
 

Welcome to the Upper 6th Form

We are the oldest students in the school, and provide the learning environment for young people aged between 16 and 19 years. We are very lucky to have a whole section of the school to ourselves, which means we can divide into our activities daily and join together at key times during the week with Lower 6th Form for Work Related Learning and Sports and Leisure activities.

We are working towards qualifications as and when we leave school; This is really important to us, as it means we can move on into adulthood with the best options possible – some of our friends last year went to college, and others joined adult resource centres to develop their work skills even more.

Naomi is our teacher and she is helped by Sue, Julie, Tracie, Aran and Ruth – meaning we can spend a lot of our week out and about in the local community, enjoying school based work experience and practice skills we need for our adult life in the local area.

We have a Common Room which was new last year and we were very involved in getting this ready. We have painted the walls and produced artwork on canvas as decoration. Next, we turned our attention to soft furnishings – sewing bean bags, upcycling furniture and asking local businesses for donations for activities. Our Sensory Tutor Group have made panels for the walls to create a fun and interesting sensory environment for us also.

We hope you enjoyed looking at our web page – and enjoy looking at what we do. You are welcome to come and visit us in school and ask us about our learning!

Pathways Learning
 
As we enter the Sixth Form, we are supported to choose the right Pathway for us. There are four Pathways and each one provides us with different qualification options, our curriculum offer and the support we have for Work Related Learning and Careers advice. 
 
There is more detail about our Pathways on the page 'Post 16' which is under the Key Information section on this website. 
 
Please take a look at our Prospectus too - it talks about what we will learn, how we will develop and the qualifications we can work towards for English, Maths and Life Skills.
