We have over 320 intelligent and articulate young adults in our sixth form, and this is a natural progression for students beyond year 11.
The sixth form at Sandringham is a rich and vibrant community of students and teachers who are committed to achieving excellence in everything they do. It is a time of opportunities and experiences: academic, social and cultural and we aim to help you successfully complete your formal education before moving on to University or work.
Sandringham Sixth Form is open to any student who reach our entrance criteria regardless of where they live or school they have attended. Sixth Form students have full access to a wide range of courses through our own curriculum and the long-established BeauSandVer (BSV) post-16 consortium with Beaumont and Verulam schools. We offer AS and A2 courses together with other Level 3 vocational subjects. There is something to suit anyone who wishes to join the Sixth Form and pursue an academic course of study.
Sixth Form Facilities
In December 2012 we opened two new parts to our sixth form centre; the grand open space for silent study and the Starbucks Cafe.
This means you can choose where you want to study during the day (and evening) similar to a University style environment. We now have three separate study zones for you to choose from. In addition, we have specialist subject and tutorial staff to support and encourage you to become responsible, independent learners. A structured programme of tutorials and progress monitoring will help you in fulfilling your potential in your chosen specialist areas.
Sixth Form students play a unique and valuable role in the school, contributing actively to the wider life of the school community. They arrange and run events with younger students, demonstrating tremendous leadership and motivation, particularly through the House System. The Head Girl, Head Boy, Senior Executive Committee, Senior Prefects, Prefects and various House and Sports Captains play a particularly key role in school life and competition is fierce for these positions of responsibility.
We encourage all Sixth Form students to participate in enrichment activities that develop personal skills and there is a very robust Careers Education and Guidance programme which helps them prepare for Higher Education and the workplace.
The Sixth Form is pre-University style culture with extremely high expectations and challenges, but equally high rewards at the end. It probably constitutes the best days of school at Sandringham for many students.
'Sixth formers are wonderful role models for younger students, through their responsibilities in the school, the day to day support that they give to younger students and their involvement in community activities'. Ofsted
