Head of Sixth Form's Welcome

David1Misbourne Sixth Formers are challenged and supported every step of the way. This begins at the start of Year 12 with a daily study skills programme showing you how to take what the teachers set in lessons as the starting point of your studies. At every stage of your journey, right through until the conclusion of Year 13, we will encourage and support you, or intervene if required, so that you can develop your academic and wider CV to help you stand out from the crowd when you apply to university or careers.

We treat our Sixth Formers as responsible young people but we also communicate well to families where appropriate.

We are very fortunate to have fantastic facilities for our Sixth Form. We boast a relatively new purpose-built Sixth Form block with large study room, resourced with desktop computers and laptops.

Students can choose to work in collaborative and private study areas, or utilise the well-stocked library or café when not in timetabled lessons. The main space is very versatile and is used for everything from masterclasses with visiting speakers to end-of-term form time quiz events.

The ‘soft’ skills delivered in the classroom and in our varied enrichment and careers programme are a key aspect of our Sixth Form experience. Our students become smart, confident young adults with high aspirations. With an equal number progressing to university and apprenticeships/careers, we are able genuinely to promote both routes in equal stature alongside each other. We encourage all our students to fully research going to university and not going to university to make the best decisions for their futures.

Our most exciting development is our quickly growing alumni network where we celebrate many of the fantastic careers that Misbourne leavers move into and encourage more to return here to share their experiences with our current students.
