Sixth Form

St George’s Church of England Foundation School provides a range of opportunities and experiences at Post-16 including a variety of Level 3 qualifications allowing pupils to progress into employment and higher education.  The two year experience of Sixth Form does not only provide pupils with the qualifications and skills needed for the next stage of their higher education or career, it is the intermediate stage between childhood and adulthood. The pastoral support given throughout the Sixth Form experience helps our pupils to enter the next stages of their lives as well-rounded adults.

 

The Sixth Form offers a range of activities for pupils including our Football Academy, social events and trips. Pupils are encouraged to take part in the school enrichment programme where they support the school or wider community in various ways whilst simultaneously improving their CV. Sixth Form pupils are offered the chance to help younger pupils in the secondary or primary school.

 

We understand that not all of our pupils will choose to progress to university after their time in Sixth Form but there is a well-structured programme of preparation for higher education for those that decide to progress in this way. Other pupils will be supported in finding full-time employment or apprenticeships. For more details of our Careers and University support, please follow this link:
