The Sixth Form

Our Sixth Form is renowned as a community of mutual respect between students and staff and our unique supportive culture, in line from our founding ethos, promotes a safe, happy and holistic learning environment where students feel truly valued. Our students learn to become independent learners, think deeply about the world around them and work with rigour to reach their academic potential.

We welcome students from all schools, backgrounds and beliefs. Our induction programme helps those new to our College feel very welcomed and to forge strong bonds with their peers. Our developing Alumni programme fosters active and enduring relationships between current and former students. Our alumni regularly attend to give presentations to the students on various careers, provide advice on university pathways and offer work experience opportunities for students.

Entry into the Sixth Form represents an exciting new phase in your academic career and choosing the right combination of courses is vitally important to enjoying the Sixth Form and achieving your potential. Our aim has always been to provide the best A Level results of which our students are capable and to produce young people of whom we can be justly proud. We recognise the importance of high A Level grades in today’s world, but we never lose sight of our ideals that education is far more than simply academic disciplines. It is the nurturing of values and qualities that will prepare our students to take their place as leaders in tomorrow’s society, to be confident in their abilities and to reach the highest levels in their chosen careers.

St Bede’s has given me the greatest memories.
