Students studying at Sacred Heart Sixth Form take part in an enrolment interview, reflection time and then an induction programme that are all designed to ensure the study programme they follow meets their prior attainment scores and sets them on the right path to succeed in their chosen career.

Information, advice, research and guidance is conducted through:

  • Connexions interview (qualified careers advisor)

  • Interview with SLT and Sixth Form staff

  • Sixth Form enrolment form completed

  • Y12 induction over 2.5 days

  • Final check of options/advice and guidance after GCSE results

The aim of Sacred Heart’s Sixth Form is to develop in each student’s inner confidence, a sense of self-worth, drive and aspiration and the courage to try new challenges and explore their own potential.

We are ambitious for our students and we want them to leave us ready to make the world a better place and take up the best careers, apprenticeships or university places.

Study programmes are individual to the learner but all have the following elements:

  • At least three, Level 3 qualifications.  We offer a broad range of A level and technical qualifications to ensure inclusivity for varying prior attainment and career goals. Students usually follow either an academic or a technical pathway although increasing numbers of students are opting for a blend of academic and technical to meet their learning style needs and maximise their potential for post 18 pathways.  EPQ is also offered from Easter of Year 12

  • Work experience

  • Non-qualification activities which include tutor time activities, PSHCE, careers lesson, general RS and Unifrog tasks.  All of these activities ensure each student receives a broad and diverse programme of events and sessions to support progression to the next stage of their individual journey. We ensure their spiritual, personal, social and emotional needs are developed through bespoke PSHCE sessions.  We guide students to develop personally through the Janet Erksine Stuart programme and encourage building positive relationships with others

Our Sixth Form Course Information and Entry Requirements booklet can be found here.

Students who do not yet have a pass at grade 4 or above in GCSE Mathematics or English Language will follow a GCSE course in these subjects.
