Welcome – Sixth Form

Welcome to the Sixth Form.

Life in the Sixth Form is academically demanding, educationally enriching and socially enjoyable. We want our A Level students to crown their school careers with two very happy and successful years. The Sixth Form at Silcoates provides an independent business-style environment, but with all the advantages of being on a school campus. Sixth Formers wear their own suits and have a highly visible and important role in the school.

Students are expected to contribute for the benefit of the school as a whole, for example by welcoming and showing visitors around. They help younger pupils in the Paired Reading and Peer Mentoring schemes, organise events and assist in the selection of House teams.

The wide range of A Levels on offer gives students access to every Higher Education course and then beyond into the career of their choice. This prospectus seeks to outline the courses available, with a summary of each subject specification, and to give an overview, in words and pictures, of the many benefits we offer to our Sixth Formers.

Our Sixth Formers benefit from:

  • A fully co-educational experience
  • A wide range of subject choices
  • Small class sizes
  • A dedicated Study Centre
  • Careers and university advice tailored to individual needs
  • An even wider choice of extra-curricular opportunities
  • And on top of all that, it’s good fun, too!
