The Sixth offers its students greater freedom and opportunity but along with this comes more responsibility.
The Sixth experience is different from anything you have known so far. It offers you greater freedom and opportunity, but along with this comes more responsibility. It is a time for you to take control, a time when you will make important decisions, and a time in which you will grow intellectually and personally.
It is the most challenging work you will have undertaken so far; however everything is in place at The Sixth to help you thrive and meet that challenge. Through our extensive choice of A Level and BTEC courses, you can delve deeper into your academic passions, while forming more mature relationships with teachers who will support you every step of the way. Through our university, career, enrichment and scholars’ pathways, you will benefit from a range of inspirational talks, conferences, workshops, trips, events, summer programmes and work placements, helping you to develop a broad portfolio of attitudes, skills and knowledge to ensure you are well placed to succeed in a competitive world.
As well as a Sixth Form Centre, with access to a common room, supervised study rooms, iPads and a fully resourced library, we have an expansive sixth form team which boasts specialist tailored roles that further support students in achieving their future ambitions – including a Careers and UCAS Officer.
Life at The Sixth is not just about working hard. We promise an experience which also offers plenty of laughter, fun and friendship. You can join the Student Leadership Team, become a member of a sports team, hone your creative talents, attend social events and take part in charity fundraising. We look forward to welcoming you into The Sixth at Gumley House community. Please do not hesitate to discuss The Sixth experience with me or any member of our team.
