Welcome to the Sixth Form

Welcome from the Head of Sixth Form

 

We aim to provide a stimulating, intellectual and supportive environment for our students to achieve their very best. This means academic success as well as training, skills and personal development. Studying in an environment where you are known as individuals and are supported is very important for success in post-16 education.

Our highly motivated and dedicated teaching staff encourage independent investigation, discussion and debate, backed up by excellent resources and a wide-ranging curriculum. In addition students have the support of a Head of Learning who will take them through Year 12 and 13.

Sixth Form students enjoy many privileges and are encouraged to take on responsibilities within the school to develop personal qualities which are important for a successful career. The majority of our students achieve excellent results and progress to university.

We strive to ensure that all of our students leave our Sixth Form with everything they need to face the challenges of the future as confident and independent young adults. It is an experience that enables students to go on to study at high quality universities, including those within the Russell Group, and that prepares them thoroughly for the next stage of their life.

Welcome from the Head Boys and Girls

St Edwards is a school that strives to have a strong link between staff and students. As head boys and girls we help to represent the student body of the school. Communication between the students and staff is very important as it enables healthy progress and changes to be made that the students can support. For example, changes to the running of Raising and Giving week, our charity week, came about due to both staff and students coming together to work out a better programme which will be both more efficient and fun.

The Sixth Form itself is proud of it’s progressive positive atmosphere, we promote equal treatment for all of our students, being especially passionate about the treatment of minorities. This is reflected by the charities we have chosen to fundraise for throughout the year. We run clubs for students in the Sixth Form to go to, such as table tennis club at lunch and Gospel Choir, this leads to a strong community feel in the Sixth Form between the two year groups. Our events and activities give us the opportunity to bond and relax together, acting as a great means of stress relief and leisure.

As a member of St Edwards Sixth Form you are role model to the rest of the school and are expected to act accordingly. This expectation separates the Sixth Form from the rest of the school and gives you responsibilities that are required of you as an adult when you leave school. This includes punctuality, attendance, uniform, respect, a general positive attitude to learning and much more.
