Director of Sixth Form Welcome

Welcome to The John Fisher School Sixth Form. We offer a broad provision of subjects allowing choice and specialisation for all students, yet maintaining a personalised and supportive structure.
We are very proud of the achievements of the development of our students. With a 3-year average ALPs score of 3, our students consistently achieve high and leave us with the qualifications and skill set required for future success in the next stages of their lives.
Our Sixth Form is underpinned by our core values of Acceptance, Service, Perseverance, Integrity, Respect, Enjoyment and Selflessness. These provide the foundation of our Sixth Form and underpin our positive pastoral system and supportive environment.  We welcome students from of all faiths or none and aim to ensure that all our students leave with fond memories and positive experiences.
We aim to develop the whole student, enabling students to maximise their potential and develop into well rounded young people. We offer a broad range of high quality courses; allowing choice and specialisation for all students rooted in a personalised environment. Our outstanding teaching and supportive atmosphere ensures students are able to flourish and achieve, and alongside our PSHE and Careers curriculum, our students are prepared for their next steps. Many of our students continue their studies at top universities including Oxford, Cambridge and other Russell group institutions, whilst others have found success in apprenticeship programmes or paid employment.
The Sixth Form Centre is the hub of the Sixth Form and has a dedicated food and drinks servery, study area and computer facilities. It is a vibrant and busy place, which encourages students to learn independence and focus. Our teachers are passionate about their subjects and we supplement academic studies through project work and outside speakers. We offer opportunities for students to complete the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) with dedicated staff who are able to mentor and support students in developing their academic interests beyond the curriculum.
Extra-curricular activities are an important part of our Sixth Form life. We have nationally recognised Rugby, athletics and cross-country programmes and students have the opportunity to participate in a range of other activities including music, drama and debating.
There are opportunities for students to develop leadership skills, within our active Student Leadership team and our student charity, the ‘Talk Easy Trust’. Here students have the opportunity to reinforce our community values and help foster the positive environment in which our school thrives.
We believe we offer an all-round education and are convinced you will be very happy during your time at The John Fisher School.
We look forward to welcoming you.
