Introduction to Sixth Form

Our purpose-built facility and equipment support a high-quality curriculum which will enable students to meet the needs of the highest demand qualifications at Key Stages 5.

At Key Stage 5, we have worked closely with our partners in industry, and at Plymouth University’s new Faculty of Health, Medicine, Dentistry and Human Sciences to deliver the best qualifications for students wishing to follow careers in Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, Healthcare, Midwifery, Physiotherapy, Allied Health and many more.

Students wishing to become medics/ dentists have an extensive mock interview programme, undergraduate medic mentors and guidance as to the application and UCAT entry exam process. 

All students who follow the healthcare pathway will carry out work experience in a suitable institution. The Sixth Form team will work with students to ensure they are successful in procuring a placement.

Students will then be fully equipped to gain places on the most competitive of university courses and will gain the most rigorous of academic qualifications in Biology, Chemistry or health-related subjects and have regular work placements to boost their CVs and experience.

We also offer a full programme designed to allow students to follow different pathways depending on their career goals. All students are enrolled on a study programme, which typically combines A level, other Level 3 qualifications and activities tailored to each student’s prior attainment and career goals. All study programmes have a core aim; to meet the needs of the individual and prepare students for university, degree apprenticeships, or employment.

All study programmes will include non-qualification activities, which complement the other elements of the programme and support the student to progress to further or higher education (HE) apprenticeship or employment.
