Welcome to The Sixth Form
Our Sixth Form is a close-knit community where we are proud to offer individual attention under the guidance of personal tutors and within small subject groups.
We recognise that to succeed in the outside world, our pupils need to be resourceful and resilient, prepared to take the initiative as well as working in a team. Our aim is not only to equip our sixth formers with excellent A Level grades but also the skills and attitudes that will help them make the most of their lives beyond Tettenhall College.
The A Level years are demanding ones and entry into the College’s Sixth Form (Years 12 and 13) is dependent on sufficient success in GCSE Levels: the minimum entry requirement is six GCSEs at grade B or above (or equivalent).
The demands of A Level study are very different to those of GCSE. Support and guidance is always at hand from all staff and in particular from the House Tutor, Personal Tutor and Head of House who remain in close contact with pupils throughout their two years in the Sixth Form. The tutors support pupils with any dayto-day issues and act as a source of advice and encouragement. They also help the pupil follow and understand the UCAS system when applying to university, provide guidance with the reference and offer advice on preparing personal statements. We encourage all our pupils to maximise their opportunities for success at A Level whilst preparing them for study and employment beyond Tettenhall College.
As part of their development sixth formers also take on leadership roles within the school, reinforcing their preparation for social responsibility in the outside world. Not only do our Sixth Form pupils benefit from this in terms of their confidence and communication skills, they provide role models for younger pupils, and prefects are trained as peer mentors.
Our Sixth Form makes a valuable and vital contribution to the well-being of the whole School, and our pupils leave with a sense of pride and accomplishment, ready to meet their next challenge.
By joining our Sixth Form we can offer you:
- Exceptional teaching in small classes with specialised subject leaders.
- A welcoming environment for pupils new to the school.
