The sixth forms of Saint Gregory’s and St Mark’s have come together to create a unique provision for young people in the Bath area: a high quality sixth form built on Christian foundations.
We want all our students to continue to develop the values, confidence, knowledge and skills they need for adult life, and to grow into caring, well-rounded citizens who will contribute to the good of society.
A sixth form is the final stage of a secondary education before young men and women go on to university, college, employment or training. It is a time of academic application, with students following rigorous programmes of study and exploring their future options. We will be with our students at this crucial stage in their journey with personalised and attentive support and guidance, as well as teaching of the highest quality.
The sixth form is also a time for developing a range of other skills, prior to entering adult life. As a Christian sixth form provision we are mindful of the need to develop Christian values in our students as well as the leadership skills they will need to be effective and caring future citizens.
In recent years, there has been a growing demand for this type of provision from our parents. More and more of them have been looking for an alternative to large scale further education provision. While these institutions no doubt offer an efficient range of courses, they cannot offer the continuity of ethos and sense of structure, routine and pastoral care offered by a school sixth form.
