Nunthorpe Sixth Form is an inclusive learning environment where students are given the opportunity to develop independently whilst also knowing that there is extensive academic and pastoral support available to help you to achieve your full potential.
As the Sixth Form offers A-Level and BTEC subject options, there is a strong emphasis on academic development and attainment, however alongside this there are many extra-curricular opportunities available to students, with most taking advantage of this through our comprehensive Enrichment programme.
Many new students worry about the jump from GCSEs to A-Level but prospective students should not be anxious about this as every subject will provide support on how to manage time and revision, with this advice starting from the induction days in July and lasting for the duration of the year. We are a relatively small sixth form so class sizes are generally smaller resulting in more personal and targeted support for students.
Students are allocated Independent Study periods in the timetable, where you are expected to complete revision or read around your subjects further. During these Independent Study periods students have access to our quiet Learning Resource Centre with computers and a library, student group rooms, and our Lime Lounge area which is used for group discussion work or if students want a more relaxed environment.
There are many pastoral and extra-curricular activities and support that students can use and opportunities that they can take part in. New students are given a tutor who supports you in finding opportunities and applying for post-16 education. Tutor groups create a community that takes part in many activities within the sixth form.
Throughout the year, the Sixth Form organises many talks from different universities, focusing on Summer school opportunities, how to write a personal statement and the university application process.
In addition, there are a range of extracurricular activities that students can be involved in. In our Enrichment programme, there are many possible options such as the Debating Society, the Sixth Form magazine, the Meserani Project, the Extended Project Qualification or the option to volunteer or conduct some work experience.
There is also the opportunity for students to be involved with the Sixth Form Student Council, which organises charity events throughout the year and works to improve the Sixth Form community. Every year the Sixth Form student council organises charity fund-raising events for national campaigns and local charities and communities.
The Sixth Form would love to see you in September and we hope that you are excited to start the next the step of your education with us!
