We encourage our students to continue their education beyond year 11 and a large number of them stay on with us in NE12 Sixth Form – a collaborative Sixth Form for students from our school and Longbenton High School.
We have a close, long-standing partnership where students benefit greatly from exceptional teaching and learning as well as care, guidance and support which are second to none. Students have access to a shuttle bus which transports students between schools during the day.
The range of courses on offer is designed to allow all students the opportunity for further study and we welcome all students, provided they are committed to their studies and make the most of opportunities presented to them. We offer A-Levels as well as vocational qualifications and applied courses.
Students in the Sixth Form are given a considerable degree of choice in the subjects they study and are guided individually as to what will be realistic and appropriate for them through a series of interviews.
The options include AS, A Level and BTEC courses which can be mixed as far as the constraints of the timetable allow. We now collaborate with a neighbouring high school so that we may offer all students a greater range of course choice than we would individually be able to.
Full details of our Post-16 provision will be made available to students and parents in December of Year 11.
