“Effectiveness of the Sixth Form”
The Sixth Form provides an outstanding education for all its students. Standards are exceptionally high and achievement is outstanding. The proportion of students who transfer into the Sixth Form from the main school is high (about 85%) and students speak enthusiastically about the very effective transition, which is due to the extensive guidance available when choices need to be made. An overwhelming percentage of students (99%) continue to study for A levels following their success in AS levels in Year 12. Every student leaving the Sixth Form in 2007 accepted a place at university or in higher education. The leadership and management of the Sixth Form are outstanding. Very close monitoring of students’ progress is achieved through an excellent mentor system. Formal and informal systems complement each other so that students’ subject performance is guided and supported effectively and students’ personal development is nurtured well. There are close partnerships with other institutions, external agencies and with parents.
