Sixth Form Life

Wheatley Park Sixth Form is an environment for students to thrive personally and academically with a great atmosphere. Our students enjoy a huge range of opportunities outside the curriculum and are very involved in the life of the school community. Students organise several annual events including a film festival and fashion show and are encouraged to undertake voluntary work.

Leadership roles

Within the Sixth Form students can take on leadership responsibilities. The Head Boy/Girl team have whole school responsibilities and head student leaders from all year groups in providing an effective student voice within our school community.

In addition, we have a Sixth Form committee who represent the student body on Sixth Form issues, organise social events and promote fundraising for a range of charities including ROSY

Enrichment Programme

All students will participate in an enrichment programme which is designed to extend their experience beyond the traditional classroom environment. Whether you are aiming to complete your Gold DofE award, improve your artistic abilities, participate in sport or create a school magazine, we hope to provide a positive experience which can enhance your academic profile.

Business Placement Week

You will be provided with an opportunity in the summer term of Y12 to take a work placement. Our Work experience coordinator, will be able to support you in organising this.


Wheatley Park occupies the superb site of Holton Park with its Georgian mansion and extensive parklands; a moated island marks the site of a much earlier mansion mentioned in the Domesday Book. 

The Sixth Form centre offers excellent facilities including an IT study area with wireless network, a silent study area with careers library and a common room with its own canteen.
