At Jesmond Park Academy we encourage our Year 12 and 13 students to be their own people and recognise that they need their own environment and space to study and socialise. Our Sixth Form centre includes:
Sixth Form Bistro
Only Sixth Form students are allowed to use the Bistro. You can buy a hot drink, a snack or some much needed chocolate! You can also get breakfast and lunch at very competitive prices. It is an area for Sixth Form students to relax, to catch up with some group work over a coffee, chat and socialise.
The Sixth Form Library is a dedicated study area used by students throughout the day. It is designed for quiet individual study, with space for work by small groups. It provides an environment where students can study, carry out research, prepare assignments, work on UCAS applications or catch up on some reading. The Library is named after Ayesha Ahmed, a former student who still serves as an inspiration for our Sixth Form students. There is study space for 60 students – comprising of 30 PCs and seating for 30. Students also have access to a bank of 10 Netbooks for use in the Library or other communal areas.
If you need to really focus on your revision or coursework and would prefer to work in complete silence there are small study rooms available for Sixth Form students to use. They have full computer access and are especially popular with students around exam times.
