Sixth Form College Curriculum
In the Sixth Form, our students experience a variety of exciting opportunities to challenge themselves and develop as individuals as well as intellectually. On entry to SFC1, new and existing students are all put into new tutor groups, each with a dedicated and specialist Sixth Form Tutor. The Tutor continues to provide valuable guidance and mentoring, and with the support of the Professional Guidance Centre, gives advice on careers, work experience and the Higher Education process. The wellbeing and academic progress of our Sixth Formers is overseen by our Head of Sixth Form College.
We pride ourselves on offering choice. To that end, we offer two routes of study; traditional A Levels and the increasingly popular International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Within these two pathways, we are able to accommodate a wide range of options.
Outside lessons, an enriching array of confidence building co-curricular activities include many popular schemes and clubs: There are opportunities to help a number of good causes through our long-running Community Links programme; Economics teachers oversee budding entrepreneurs in the Young Enterprise contest and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme remains a firm favourite.
For their final two years in College, all students move into one of the Sixth Form houses. Whether day or boarding, these provide a stepping stone to university life, and a chance to develop increasing independence in preparation for adulthood.
