Welcome to our Sixth Form

Our sixth form provides inspiring courses and exceptional experiences for nearly 250 post-16 students. Working as a confederation with Priesthorpe and Crawshaw, our partnership of schools offers a flexible curriculum that enables the vast majority of students to follow their first-choice combination of A Level or Vocational subjects. Together, we are a learning community of around 600 students, meaning that we can deliver the highest quality provision and widest range of opportunities for the young people of Pudsey.

  

As role models for younger students, and future leaders of organisations, students are encouraged to embrace the chance to develop personal skills and attributes, as well as to achieve their academic potential. We want to see our students complete their courses successfully whilst developing into happy, confident young people with wide-ranging interests and high aspirations. We therefore also offer a range of leadership opportunities, and support students in finding work experience, voluntary work and paid employment.

 

The ethos of our school is to foster relationships based on mutual respect, and sixth form students are very much treated as adults. We have high expectations, as we prepare students for the increased independence of university, and for the demands of competitive employment. Equally, our teachers are friendly and approachable, and they work tirelessly to provide students with the support and expertise needed to flourish academically and personally.
