Welcome to Hartismere School
Hartismere Sixth Form College welcomes students from all over Suffolk and Norfolk, as well as our own Hartismere students - all benefit from the same care and support that makes ours an outstanding school and sixth form.
Students can choose from a wide range of A level subjects; they can also extend their academic experience through a range of fast-track qualifications, the Extended Project Qualification as well as a broad programme of cultural enrichment. Hartismere offers its students experienced and committed staff and fantastic resources including a purpose built sixth form reading room. We expect our students to be hard-working, to want to achieve success and show a commitment to the wider life of the sixth form and school community.
Our open evening gives prospective students and their parents an opportunity to see the sixth form, the school and to meet the staff. Visits at other times can always be accommodated.
Director of Sixth Form
At Hartismere we offer a wide range of academic A level subjects, as well as enrichment courses and the highly regarded Extended Project Qualification.
Brief details of the courses we offer are given in this prospectus. You can also read about some of the graduates of those courses. Much more detailed information about each course, subject content and how it is assessed and taught is given in each department’s subject leaflets. You can collect these at our open evening, download them from our website or request them from the sixth form office.
The Sixth Form College comprises sixth form study areas, a reading room, teaching rooms and offices, all with wifi access. The internet café and kitchen area are solely for sixth form use.
As a Sports College, Hartismere offers its students opportunities to take part in all manner of sporting activities, including rugby, cricket, netball and football. Our new 9 hectare site has been developed to accommodate several new pitches and running track and other new developments include a fitness suite, a dance studio with fully sprung floor, a flood-lit astro pitch and new flood-lit netball and tennis courts. After a formal induction, College students may use the fitness suite.
The College has been awarded the Arts Award Mark for excellence in performing arts and students are able to take the Arts Award and continue it to gold level if they wish. The Duke of Edinburgh Award is also offered at the school.
Information about travel to and from the College is available from our office. Bus fees start from £190 per term and students in Suffolk should apply via the County website: www.suffolkonboard.com.

It is possible for students to park in the College car park but they must obtain a pass from the sixth form office first.
