Welcome to The Sixth Form
There is no doubt that the Sixth Form years are not only exciting times for our pupils but also some of the most challenging times for their future growth and development. A Level study is demanding yet opportunities abound as our pupils look ahead and prepare for university or life in the work place.
Tettenhall College Sixth Form has an impressive track record of success and we are rightly proud of all of our former pupils who consistently leave us to continue their studies at some of the most prestigious universities and educational establishments worldwide. Recently, we have also seen our pupils take up coveted apprenticeships with leading names in the businesses world and our global network of alumni are increasingly on hand to support and guide the next cohort as they make their way in the commercial world.
Naturally we offer a wide range of ‘A’ level subjects, from the traditional core subjects such as mathematics and the Sciences to the lesser known specialised subjects such as theatre studies and photography. We recognise the challenges of study at this level and every pupil has regular contact not only with their Form Tutor but with their Personal Tutor who is assigned to each individual to support them over the course of the two years. Similar to the university model, personal tutors are on-hand to guide and mentor their pupils in many areas including pastoral matters, university applications and careers advice.
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 Sixth Form pupils benefit from this in terms of their confidence and communication skills, they provide role models for younger pupils, and some 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.
- Excellent support for life beyond ‘A’ levels be that in the work place or in higher education.
- Wonderful enrichment opportunities to develop essential skills that will stay with you for life.
