About us


The Sixth Form Centre at Westhoughton High School offers you opportunities to enjoy your education and to achieve high standards in a supportive and caring environment. Our superb Value Added Scores sum up how passionate we are about your education: we don’t just support you in doing well. We support you in being the best you can be.
We aim to equip you with skills you will use throughout your future career. You will be encouraged to participate in enrichment activities like Young Enterprise, outward bound/ survival skills, work experience, Duke of Edinburgh, visits and voluntary work. Taking part in the things you enjoy will help you develop as a person as well as passing exams.
We are an inclusive Sixth Form, offering a range of courses which are personalised to meet your individual needs. We offer traditional and applied A Levels, BTEC courses and the New Diplomas and we interview everyone who applies, so you will be given support and guidance in choosing the study package that’s right for you.
As an inclusive Sixth Form, we welcome people with all sorts of ambitions and backgrounds – but they have one thing in common: a desire to achieve. We take time to find out about every student individually and will give you the support you need to achieve the very best of which you are capable. We ask only one thing of you as a student here: Your Best.
