Academics

“Without the commitment and dedication of staff at The New Sixth, I would not have such a bright future in medicine ahead of me. The guidance I have received, from both subject staff and the pastoral team, has helped me to secure four university offers to study medicine at some of the best institutions in the country.”

Year 13 student

When a student joins us in Year 12, they embark on a journey that will last for two years and, from their very first day, we instil in them a desire and ambition to strive for the highest standards, to continue to develop a life-long love of learning and to achieve their own personal best. During this time, our sixth form students will mature and develop into ambitious, adventurous and motivated young men and women, determined to make their mark on the world.

Our A Level results are excellent and not just in raw terms but also in the context of what we call ‘value-added’. Such measures seek to identify the progress that every student makes during his or her time with us, and show that our students make outstanding progress.

The achievement of our students consistently places our sixth form as one of the top achieving sixth forms locally. Students leaving The New Sixth progress to some of the very best academic institutions including Oxford, Cambridge and the Russell Group.
