At Abbey College Sixth Form we provide the kind of experience that allows all students to progress to either University, Apprenticeships or Employment. We offer a wide range of subjects and our teaching and learning is excellent. We are extremely proud of the support we provide to all students to help them achieve their academic goals and ensure that they feel well supported and able to meet the challenging demands of Sixth Form. With a dedicated Sixth Form team, any worries or concerns will be addressed quickly whether academic or pastoral.

We offer a mixture of A level and BTEC courses. There is e a flexible curriculum which enables a mixture of these courses to be taken and also includes supervised learning periods in a computer suite to help students stay on track when they need help. Teaching is regularly monitored to ensure all students receive the best learning experience.

Throughout the year we give every student the opportunity to visit relevant career and university exhibitions to support their chosen pathway following Sixth Form (with the current situation, these may be virtual). Students can take part in volunteering, become a part of a successful student leadership team, gain valuable experience through relevant work shadowing and contribute to the life of the school. Form time is vital to ensure preparation for progression and is thorough so that tutors have the chance to build positive relationships with students to provide necessary support.

Despite the severe disruption around exams in 2020, 60% or our year 13s applied and accepted University places with many in Russell Group Universities. A proportion went into apprenticeships and jobs.

We are incredibly proud of our Sixth Form. The students, our Sixth Form team and teaching staff make our Sixth Form a fantastic place to be and it provides the perfect stepping stone to your future.

Our prospectus is available to view here and will give you all the information needed to help you navigate your way through life as a Post 16 student.

Introducing the 2021/22 Head Students

Maddison - my role as one of the Head Students is to oversee the lower school whether that be through events or for general advice. I enjoy helping others to overcome any struggles they may face within their Secondary experience. I am very grateful to be a part of this Head Student team that will continue to uplift others.

Sophie - I will be focusing on liaising between the Year 12s  and Year 13s. That involves working with events committee to put on days for our students but to increase the sense on community between 12 and 13. I look forward to working with the other head and the leadership team to improve Abbey College Sixth Form!

Paige - I will be focusing on leading student voice, to ensure meaningful feedback is taken into account in order to create a Sixth Form that you will be proud of. From things like the Café6 menu to post-18 support, every voice will be heard.
