The Curriculum: The New Sixth combines exceptional teaching and learning with outstanding pastoral care enabling students to thrive in an atmosphere that ensures everyone acquires the academic success, confidence and skills they need to continue their educational journey of choice.
Our A Level results are excellent and not just in raw terms but also in the context of what we call ‘value-added’. Such measures seek to identify the progress that every student makes during his or her time with us, and show that, year on year, our students make outstanding progress and secure exceptional university, apprenticeship or employment placements.
Extra Curricular Activities: Students at The New Sixth are given the chance to personalise their education through our enrichment programme, designed to challenge individuals to extend their thinking, their skills and their intellect so that they can engage in debate or discussion at interview and show the real potential that universities and employers seek. Students follow a dedicated programme aimed at developing key life-skills to deepen and enrich their learning beyond the classroom.
Pastoral Care: Our Sixth Form is open to all, our guiding mission is to provide our students with exciting sixth form experiences that promote academic excellence and spiritual guidance, ensuring Christian Values are at the centre of all that we do. Based in our purpose-built sixth form campus, students receive mentoring and pastoral support from a dedicated Sixth Form and Chaplaincy team, providing everyone with the space and autonomy to grow in a supportive, high-achieving academic environment.
