Our Sixth Form mantra is:
“To take charge of our own learning is to take charge of our own lives”.
This is something which we believe is vital in order for our students to reach their full potential. Consequently Wilson Stuart Sixth Form is not just about developing our students’ academic skills and qualifications but also about the transition into adulthood and an increasingly independent life.
What do our students study?
Essentially we run two curricular – one followed by students in 5.1 and 5.2 and one followed by students in 5.3 and 5.4. Within both curricular we are committed to promoting British Values such as believing in yourself, knowing right from wrong, contributing to our community, respecting those who keep us safe and accepting other people’s beliefs.
What do the subjects entail?
How many days are our students in school?
All students are in school for four days a week (9am – 3.30pm). The fifth day is for independent study.
Do our students wear uniform?
Sixth Form students do not have to wear uniform. However we do expect our students to wear smart business clothing if they are on work experience.
Do our students have work experience?
We are incredibly fortunate to have a work placement officer to help our students gain suitable and fulfilling work experience as well as supporting us with Employability Days and events.
What about extra -curricular activities?
We endeavour to provide trips and experiences which will enrich our students’ lives and allow them to gain a greater sense of the world around them as well as contributing to their community.
- We run the Mcmillan Coffee Morning and other charity events.
- We produce and perform a show for the whole school.
- We run a Year 13 Residential to Hereward College where the focus is on developing independent life skills.
- We run a student advocacy group in conjunction with “Advocacy Matters”.
- Opportunities for travel training are available.
What support do our students get?
Sixth Form students are allocated a Key Worker who is with them in all their lessons. They also have regular “Personal Learning Programme” sessions to help them set, review and evaluate academic and personal targets.
We work hard to ensure Wilson Stuart Sixth Form is a happy, engaging, challenging and safe environment for our students and they leave us confident and ready for the wider world.
