Life in the Sixth Form
What makes our Sixth Form special?
Now that you are embarking on the journey from Year 11 to Sixth Form, we would encourage you to consider all of the options available and look at as many schools and colleges as possible so that you choose the place that is right for you. We are incredibly fortunate to retain our highest performing Year 11 students into our Sixth Form each year, but we are also pleased to open our doors and welcome students from other schools across Croydon and the surrounding boroughs.
Of course we think our Sixth Form Centre is special! Students are well prepared for the next stage of their education, training or employment because they take appropriate qualifications and achieve well. In both 2017 and 2018 students' progress on A-level courses was well above the national average. However, we also believe that being a centre of educational excellence is about so much more than performance and achievement. An extension of the Primary and Secondary Phase sections of our Academy, we offer a safe and supportive environment with a strong sense of family. As the bridge to Higher Education, we encourage students to become independent learners but we also understand that there is a transition period and that this doesn’t happen overnight. We aim to be there every step of the way, supporting and nurturing progress during Year 12 so that, by Year 13, this independence has evolved naturally.
We have high standards of all applicants. Further information regarding entry requirements can be found on our Curriculum page but we would suggest you contemplate your options carefully and consider A-level courses that you will achieve at least a Grade 5 in at GCSE.
