A full A Level or BTEC takes two years to complete. In Year 12 you will take three or four subjects (A Levels, AS Levels BTECs or a combination of both).
 

Facilities
 

As well as having use of the other facilities around the school, the Sixth Form Centre is a designated area in the school for the students to use recreationally and for their studies. The Sixth Form Centre consists of a Common Room and a Study Room as well as access to excellent facillaties at Woodrush Cmmunity Hub. 
The Common Room has an expansive seating area, a kitchen area and a wall mounted wide screen television. 
The Group Study Room is a purpose built study area for the students to work in. There is wireless internet access in this area as well as ICT facilities for the students to use. 
The Study Room also has a resource library that consists of various materials to support students in applications to further education courses and other career pathways. The Silent study area is a new addition to the Sixth form where students can go to work independently. It is equipped with a large seating area of independent study desks along with set of computers. 

The Sixth Form Committee
 

The Sixth Form Committee is an important decision making body in the Sixth Form. The Committee is comprised of several members whom all have select roles, including: Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy, Deputy Head Girl, Charity/Fundraising Directors, Social Events Co-ordinators and Sports Directors. The Committee meets frequently throughout the course of the academic year to discuss and organise a wide range of events and initiatives for the Sixth Form. 
The Committee is also important in terms of representing student voice in the Sixth Form. It is vital that the Sixth Form have their say in terms of further improvements and developments they would like to see made. The Sixth Form Committee ensures that these views are represented and implemented where facilities, social events, trips, fundraising/charity events and other initiatives are concerned. 
 

‘Sixth Form students were observed performing at a high level and making rapid progress in many subjects as a result of outstanding teaching and the individual guidance and support provided (Ofsted 2013).’
