Welcome from the Director of 6th Form
Harton Sixth Form is establishing itself as a high quality provider for 6th form education. The fabulous new state of the art building provides a great environment for students to make the transition to a business like work space and it has been designed to include a range of resources, study work and progressions spaces.
We have very high expectations and believe we can offer students an excellent package that allows students the choice of a wide range of courses in a very personal and supportive environment. Our class sizes are kept small and this allows students the support that will allow them to develop the necessary skills in order to fulfil their potential. There is a friendly community atmosphere within the sixth form and relationships between staff and students are very positive and productive.
We very much see ourselves as an important stepping stone allowing young people to move on to great things in the future. Therefore, we work with students to ensure that they are placed on an appropriate programme of study that suits their strengths and allows students to fulfil their ambitions. We work hard to then ensure that students have the necessary care, guidance and support to give them the best possible start in whatever they decide to do in the future.
Students are challenged in all aspects of developing as young adults so they can be successful in the future. Opportunities are provided and students are encouraged to expand their social, recreational, sporting and cultural interests. We offer extensive enrichment opportunities in order to allow young people to develop new skills, meet new people and broaden their horizons. We also work closely with local agencies and organisations in trying to allow students to gain relevant work experience so that they have the edge when it comes to applications to either Higher Education or employment.
A large number of students will continue in to higher education and students are guided and supported through this increasingly challenging and demanding process. We are building a strong reputation as an institution that combines academic success with personal development in a positive and supportive environment.
Come and experience Harton Sixth Form at our open evening to meet both staff and students. Alternatively, please phone and arrange a visit.
It is the students and staff that make our Sixth Form so special and if you decide to apply I hope you will make us even stronger.
I look forward to meeting you.
