Sixth Form

As a Catholic school we expect all Post 16 students to demonstrate our core values: service, care and respect for everyone in all aspects of their day to day life. We aim to prepare students for higher education and working life. Therefore we have created opportunities where students are given more freedom and rights but also have greater responsibilities.

Sixth Form life offers students many new experiences and opportunities. St John Fisher Sixth Form is a place where all students are valued as unique and given a great deal of time and attention by tutors and teachers. Our teachers have great insight into students’ strengths and can help work on areas for improvement with the students themselves.

Being in the Sixth Form at St John Fisher is a vibrant and stimulating experience. We have a small Sixth Form and pride ourselves on knowing each student well, so we can support and challenge each individual according to their needs. We aim to facilitate the development of the whole person where each individual is able to flourish not only academically but also socially, morally and spiritually. Students leave us with self confidence and high aspirations for themselves and respect and tolerance for others.

Being in the Sixth Form requires students to be responsible and independent in their learning and conduct. We will support each individual throughout their development of excellent learning habits conducive to studying at University and beyond. It is for the reasons above that each student will have their own personalised programme of study to follow based on their GCSE results, needs, aspirations and interests. There are a variety of courses available for study.

Our school works in Partnership with The King’s School and is therefore able to offer a wider selection of courses for study at A Level than we would have been able to alone. This means that you may study one A Level subject at The King’s School if we cannot offer the subject here. We are very fortunate to have this partnership without which our broad Post 16 curriculum would not be possible.
