The John Fisher School's Sixth Form welcomes applications from boys of all faiths or none from other schools. We offer a wide range of courses at A Level and BTEC. Complimenting the academic program is an extensive offer of enrichmnet activities. In addition to the nationally recognised performance in sports and music, students can enhance their learing through the Extended Schools Programme. It is our intention that students leave John Fisher School with as broad an experience as possible during their two years in the Sixth Form.
Students at The John Fisher School perform extremely well in the their BTEC and A Level - our results have been recognised as Outstanding in the most recent Alps report and Ofsted inspection. Almost all students explore the opportunities of Higher Education, with many students going on to study at Russell Group universities.
The Sixth Form offers those students who performed particularly well in the GCSE exams the opportunity to following an accelerated program in maths and science. Similarly high achieveing students are given the opportunity of completing and Extended Project Qualification, which universities see as extremely valuable qualification.
The Sixth Form offers a comprehensive RSHE and tutoring system and we take great pride in guiding students through this very important stage of their education. Additionally, students have the opportunity to take on positions of responsibilty and leadership with the Sixth Form.
