Sixth Form

Sixth Form

Sixth Form is all about making the right choices.

In choosing our Sixth Form you are joining one of the finest, most successful Sixth Forms in Newcastle and one that is genuinely unique.

It is one of the most popular Sixth Form centres in the city with over 300 students studying with us.

If you want to get lost in a huge FE college, or want a small, limited Sixth Form bolted onto a lower school, this school is not for you.

We currently offer 32 courses, enabling students to compose a programme of study that meets their individual needs, supporting progression onto the next step beyond the Sixth Form. It doesn't stop with just A Levels. There are BTEC programmes in Science, IT, Business, Health and Social Care.

We focus on a core of close to over 300 students in outstanding, dedicated facilities. We think we are just the right size; big enough to offer leading amenities, excellent teaching, and vibrant social life, but small enough to focus on our students and help them make the right choices to succeed at university, in life, and employment.

Furthermore, our students do succeed - well above most other schools. Year after year we see some of the best results in the city and our students going on to the UK’s leading universities. In August 2023, 72% of A Levels were graded A* to C, our overall pass rate across A Levels and BTECs was 99% and 90% of students took their first choice of university place. Sixth Form study is mainly about getting the preparation and grades you need for the university course or career you want.

If you are interested in joining our Sixth Form or finding out more, please register your interest  with us by completing our online form. On submission of the form, one of our support team will call you to discuss your next steps and to arrange for you to have a personal tour of our Sixth Form.
