About West Lakes Academy Sixth Form
As one of the highest performing sixth form centres in Cumbria you will be joining a sixth form where success is shown in our results. Many students go on to study at their top choice of university or move on to higher apprenticeships and successful careers. As a sixth form student you will have access to our dedicated sixth form centre and learning area. Our students benefit from state of the art resources and technology and outstanding ICT resources including Apple Macs and iPads. Our specialism in science is supported by our sponsors, UCLAN (University of Central Lancashire) as well as two of the most important energy organisations in the UK; the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and Sellafield Ltd. With their support we benefit from a £300k engineering suite and their expertise gives students valuable opportunities to engage in industry based activities, both in and out of the academy. Our second specialism in the arts is delivered in our performing and expressive arts centre.
