Sixth Form Introduction

Welcome to the webpage of The Ecclesbourne School Sixth Form. This webpage provides information for current students, parents / carers and applicants to the Sixth Form. Our prospectus contains detailed information on our curriculum, entry requirements, guidance and enrichment programme. We use this webpage to post web links to our presentations and signpost useful resources for post 16 education.

The Ecclesbourne School Sixth Form strives to be a successful and caring learning community that inspires individuals to meet the challenges of the future and make a positive contribution to our local community.

The Ecclesbourne School Sixth Form is proud to be a broad, inclusive Sixth Form. Every Sixth Form student can expect a caring and enriching learning environment. Our pastoral and guidance structure ensures that we get to know our students as individuals and as a result our students benefit from personalised careers guidance and academic support. The majority of our Year 11 students stay on and they are joined by ambitious, hardworking students from other schools.

Our Sixth Form has an established tradition of academic success. Our students, supported by our teachers, tutors and parents / carers set and achieve challenging goals. Every Sixth Form student acknowledges their influential role in the life of the school and understands their responsibility to our wider local community. Sixth Form students are expected to exhibit excellent behaviour, to be punctual and have high levels of attendance.

The majority of our students go on to university at the end of Year 13. Some students will take apprenticeships in competitive industries and the remainder will take a gap year before taking a place at university.

In our most recent Ofsted Inspection, our ‘Outstanding’ Sixth Form received the following endorsement: "Students in the sixth form have excellent attitudes to learning and effectively build on the skills developed through the main school to become highly articulate and confident individuals who are exemplary role models for the younger students."

We hope that you find the information listed on this webpage useful. If you would like to discuss any element of our Sixth Form provision please do not hesitate to contact me or a member of the Sixth Form Office Team.
