The sixth form is a very special time when there is greater freedom and enjoyment as you study your particular interests. At our sixth form we want you to see great success in your studies, to be fully prepared for your future and to be an asset to society. We aim to provide you with a highly supportive environment where young adults are valued, respected and supported.

The crucial choices that you make now will determine your future as you mature into a young responsible adult. The Sixth Form leadership team, tutors and teachers will take a genuine interest in your progress and will be providing a supportive and caring environment where you can thrive. We are very proud of the guidance and advice that we can offer you so that your full potential can be achieved.

Our commitment to helping you prepare for the wider world is being delivered through a programme of enrichment and other accredited awards. Our aim at Wheatley Park Sixth Form is to prepare you for future success wherever that might be. Wheatley Park Sixth Form aims to provide an outstanding learning experience and to prepare students for the future demands of Higher Education and the Workplace. Although our high level of academic success is a key feature, the Sixth Form works equally hard to help you develop your skills, character and level of independence.

We take care to create an environment which has rigorous expectations and to provide students with everything necessary to be successful, yet at the same time retaining a sense of perspective and good humour.

I hope you find many of your questions answered by browsing through the site, however, if you need any further information please do not hesitate to get in touch with us via [email protected]
