Sixth Form

We are delighted to introduce you to Altwood Church of England School Sixth Form
‘High Achieving: Student Focussed: Community Spirited’

As a school, we strive to support and challenge every Sixth Form student to achieve their very best on their chosen Programme of Study. As well as ensuring our students thrive academically, we aim to help them to develop into well-rounded, responsible young adults, ready to face the challenges of the modern world.

To give back to the community and develop key employability skills, we encourage students to make the most of the many opportunities open to them. We are passionate about supporting every student to achieve their post 18 aspirations, whether they be university, a higher apprenticeship, employment or a Gap Year.

We pride ourselves on being an inclusive Sixth Form, welcoming both our own Year 11 students choosing to make the transition to our Sixth Form alongside students from other schools. Our seamless transition process allows them to become part of our Sixth Form family in no time, making great strides on the way to their own success stories.

Sixth Form students set the tone for the whole school and establish a professional atmosphere within the Sixth Form centre and around the school. Our students care about the community they belong to and the wider community. We set very high expectations and standards for all of our students, and we are incredibly proud of their achievements.
