The New Sixth is an exciting collaboration between Saint Gregory’s, Bath and St Mark’s, Bath opened in September 2013, in collaboration with Clifton Diocese, Bath and Wells Diocese and B&NES Local Authority. Places are available in the sixth form to students from Saint Gregory’s and St Mark’s with places also available to students from other schools.

Raymond Friel, Headteacher of Saint Gregory’s said, “It is a pleasure to see our first cohort of sixth form students do so well in their exams. The students have worked very hard and deserve their excellent results, their teachers and support staff have worked tirelessly to establish our sixth form and to support our first group of students so well. These results give us all a great deal of confidence in our ability to run an excellent sixth form. It should also give any students thinking of joining us the confidence that they will flourish here in a caring and supportive environment with a commitment to the highest academic standards.”

Christine Boardman, Director of Sixth Form at Saint Gregory’s said, “We are very pleased for our students who have achieved such outstanding results. They are a delightful group and they deserve their success. It is very satisfying to see so many of them being offered places in their university of choice. We wish them well for the next stage of their journey.”
Headteacher at St Mark’s, Bath added, “We are delighted for our students and all that they have achieved in their sixth form studies at The New Sixth. They have all attained the results that they needed to secure their university or education setting of choice. The New Sixth provides a high quality sixth form education for all and we look forward to building on these successes to continue to raise the bar for sixth form students in the local area.”
