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 the link.

As a Sixth Form pupil at St George’s C of E Foundation School, I accept that my main aim is to achieve the best possible results in my studies and I will ensure this by:

  • Meeting all deadlines set by staff by making productive use of study time at school and at home
  • Limiting my involvement in paid work to no more than 12 hours a week (government recommendation) so that academic progress and success is kept a clear priority
  • Arriving punctually every morning by 9.00am to be ready for timetabled lessons or study time
  • Signing in and out with my swipe card through the pupil entrance whenever entering or leaving the school premises
  • Wearing the correct clothing to adhere to the Sixth Form dress code
  • Not leaving the school premises before 12.00 noon every day
  • Not having any mobile device out anywhere in school except the Common Room
  • Participating in a week of work experience in Year 12, where we recommend that you organise your own placement so that it is relevant to your future aspirations

In accepting a place in St George’s School Sixth Form I agree to abide by the schools rules and code of conduct and behave with maturity as befitting a senior pupil at this school.  I also agree that should there be any major concerns regarding my academic progress or approach to my studies at any point during Year 12, I may be asked to leave the Sixth Form.
