Key Stage 5

Years 12 and 13

We are very proud of the provision we offer our Post-16 learners and the choice of subjects available. Our outstanding KS5 outcomes have placed us within the top 25% of Sixth Forms for the last 2 years and we have a notable number of students who move on to some of the country's top universities.

We continue to be the Sixth Form of choice for our internal students and also welcome a large number of external applicants. Within the Sixth Form we offer extensive enrichment opportunities in addition to our academic courses, including recreational sports, debating club and mindfulness sessions. Our dedicated careers programme provides students with the opportunity to practice and hone their interview techniques.
