Our sixth form is about freedom, responsibility and opportunity, in many ways you get out of it what you put into it. The sixth form centre has high expectations and aspirations and expects students to have them too. We will encourage you to have an open mind and to think critically as you learn and progress.
Young people are increasingly required to make complex decisions about their future at an earlier age than ever before. There is a comprehensive programme of careers education and our Careers Advisory Service gives you the chance to fully explore possible progression choices. In the sixth form we ensure that all students are supported to achieve their goals. Last year, again all Year 13 leavers progressed to university, further education, apprenticeships or employment
Support for your progress
We don’t just expect success at Futura Sixth, we actively support you in achieving it. The secret of success is developing the ability to study and plan work effectively. Not all students will find this easy, but there is ongoing support available from personal tutors and teachers that know you to help you achieve your full potential.
Something for everyone
Futura Sixth’s offer alone is broad and ever increasing based on student voice each year. Being part of the Futura Learning Partnership, significantly increases the opportunities available to you both in terms of the courses on offer and the expertise that the schools each have. This includes the newly built engineering facilities at the IKB academy.
It’s not just work, work, work
At Futura Sixth, we want you to be academically successful but also to have fun. Outside of lessons, you can utilise the exclusive Sixth Form Common Room and Shades for food and drink. Throughout your time in Post-16, you will have the opportunity to be involved in a range of activities from school productions, to helping in the school community, from running charity events, the opportunity to continue with the Duke of Edinburgh Award and to be part of our new international expedition. As a sixth form student, you are also entitled to a discounted membership to the school gym.
