Welcome to The Lakes School
Whether you are currently studying at The Lakes School or you are a student at another school or college, making the right decision about where you should undertake the next stage of your learning will play a key part in determining your future success.
At The Lakes School, we believe that we have a lot to offer students in the Sixth Form. We strive to ensure our students succeed by providing an environment where students are well supported in an atmosphere which promotes learning. Here every student is treated as an individual with strengths and abilities to cherish and extend. In this way students are supported and encouraged to acquire the skills and qualifications they need to enable them to fulfil their career aspirations.
The Sixth Form offers a broad curriculum. Alongside a comprehensive A-Level offering, we have vocational courses to fully support students for whom A-Levels are not the preferred option. We also feel that students should broaden their experience by taking part in non-examination studies, community service and extra curricular activities. Our philosophy is directed towards the development of mature, independent young adults, who are able to direct and organise their own academic studies and social lives, thereby enabling them to become contributing and confident members of society.
Our sixth formers have an impressive history of gaining outstanding results; every year a high percentage achieve a place at university. We are exceptionally proud of the results of our former students, with five obtaining places at Oxbridge Universities in the last few years.
Finally, I wish you every success as you complete your Key Stage 4 studies over the next few months – remember, hard work now will be rewarded in August! If you feel that you want to be part of our Sixth Form and will benefit from what we have to offer, then we would be delighted to help support you through the next exciting phase of your learning.
Miss Sharon Rainey, Director of Sixth Form
The transition from Year 11 to the Sixth Form can be a huge step for many students. Here at The Lakes School we encourage independent learning. Our enthusiastic staff are committed to providing the essential skills for the move into higher education or employment. Despite a more relaxed atmosphere, we consistently strive to maintain the important balance between work and play, enforcing a strong work ethic. In addition to our academic courses, we offer many other opportunities throughout the Sixth Form.
