Sixth Form Prospectus
As you make the very important decision of where and what to study we trust our prospectus gives you a feel for what life is like here as a sixth form student. We are confident that whether you stay with us from Year 11 or join us in Year 12 from another school you will settle quickly and feel part of our very unique community.
Ours is a vibrant school of around 1500 pupils which is justly proud of its quality of education, especially its Year 12/13 provision.
The entire campus has been redeveloped with a multi-million pound, county council-funded investment in:
• a purpose built school to accommodate 1600 pupils;
• an extended and refurbished leisure facility;
• new external sporting facilities, including tennis courts, an all-weather pitch, running track and playing fields.
Should you enrol with us, you will be a member of the sixth form studying in a facility which is the envy of other schools and colleges. Indeed, there are a range of leisure and study facilities exclusively devoted to sixth form students, aimed at promoting individual development.
In our sixth form, we offer a broad range of academic and vocational courses, with an options menu that we are constantly working hard to improve in conjunction with neighbouring educational institutions to ensure that our students are given the widest possible choice of courses post 16. This collaboration is underpinned by the Learning and Skills (Wales) 'Measure' which provides clear guidelines for the creation of local curricula and is the statutory base of 14-19 Learning Pathways.
