Sixth Form Values

Excellence: We are one of the top performing Sixth Forms, not only in Gloucestershire, but in the country. In fact, in 2015 we were fifth highest in England and Wales for the progress our students make from GCSE to A level. Our students challenge themselves to be the best they can. 

Outstanding purpose-built facilities complement the quality of A level teaching that you will enjoy. Our staff regularly ‘go the extra mile’ with one-to-one tutorials and mentoring to ensure students reach their potential. We are as committed to your success as you are.

Personalised advice, guidance and pastoral support is available to all students. This unrivalled support includes the Aspire Programme for Oxbridge and Medicine students and we are successful in supporting students onto these paths every year. We are a learning community.

Independence is vitally important as you prepare for the next steps of your life after A levels. Therefore, we will treat you as an adult from day one, responsible for your choices from how you dress to the targets you set yourself. Students are in control of their choices, with all the responsibilities that brings.

We have a unique balance of freedom and academic rigour, of independence and support, of routine and choice. This, coupled with the breadth of our offer of both A levels and Enrichment Programmes, attracts students from many different schools. New entrants make up over 20% of the cohort each year. This can all be summed up in our core values of Community, Commitment, Control and Challenge.
