Location, Facilities & Transport


The New Sixth is located at the southern gateway to the World Heritage City of Bath with beautiful views towards the Severn estuary and over Bath. Access to the Sixth Form is easy as it is on main bus routes and next to the Bath Park and Ride terminus.


The New Sixth, supported by B&NES Council, opened in September 2013 with a state of the art new building. The building has been designed by Bristol-based architects White Design, using innovative and sustainable construction techniques.

The new facilities boasts a range of learning spaces, from a student-centred Learning Resource Centre with a well-stocked sixth form library to modern, well-equipped teaching rooms and science laboratories. There is a dedicated social space for sixth form students and landscaped gardens. Facilities will be further enhanced by Phase 2 of The New Sixth that will include a performing arts space and community hub and a home for The Well, our spiritual centre supported by the Chaplains of Saint Gregory’s and St Mark’s.

In addition, our students benefit from the existing facilities at Saint Gregory’s which have received considerable investment in recent years and are widely regarded as providing an excellent educational environment.


Whilst transport to the New Sixth is the responsibility of parents we actively work with families and the Local Authority to ensure there are cost effective and attractive bus routes to The New Sixth from every part of our catchment area.
