This is an amazing time for our Sixth Form. This summer we achieved our best results ever; placing us in the top 12% of schools nationally. We also supported more students than ever to achieve a place at University or onto level three and degree level Apprenticeship courses.
We believe that every student matters and, to this end, we focus on meeting the needs of every individual. We are able to offer a wide range of advanced and vocational courses, small class sizes, a dedicated pastoral head of sixth form, individual mentoring, private study support and an integrated independent learning skills programme.
Our Sixth Form students have full access to state-of-the-art facilities in a fantastic building, demonstrating that we value our students and are committed to enabling them to thrive both academically and personally.
Our Sixth Form aims to provide a structured and supportive environment where students flourish and develop the skills needed to go on to be successful in their chosen careers, training and/or Higher Education. We place great emphasis on academic achievement. We offer a full range of A level qualifications as well as vocational BTEC courses. A full list of courses can be seen in the prospectus. We also encourage students to broaden their experiences, to involve themselves in the community and to enjoy learning in its broadest context.
The evening will provide an opportunity for both students and parents to speak to staff about the courses on offer and to gain an insight into West Lakes Academy Sixth Form. A prospectus will be available on arrival. The evening starts at 5pm and there will be a welcome and introduction in the Performance Hall at 5:15pm for all attendees. For those who cannot attend this session it will be repeated at 6:15pm.
If you are unable to attend, please feel free to contact us to arrange an alternative time to visit. Parents and students can receive all the latest Sixth Form news including updates about the recruitment process by visiting our website or by following us on Twitter or ‘liking’ our Facebook page. We look forward to seeing you on the evening.
