Welcome to Bishopshalt School

Bishopshalt School Sixth Form welcomes all students who are motivated to work to the best of their ability and who want to build on their qualifications whether they are intending to stay for one, two or three years. The Sixth Form is drawn from a wide area and places are available for those who have been educated at other schools; each year a large number of students join us and are made very welcome.

About us

Bishopshalt School has a very high reputation as a school that values its students and challenges them to achieve their potential. Our aim is to ensure that students have the qualifications, skills and aptitude to be successful in adult life and accomplish their personal goals. We have high expectations of all our students enabling them to achieve excellent examination results. Last year, 53% of students achieved an A*-B and 77% achieved A*-C at A level which emphasises the high quality of teaching that students receive. As most of our students go on to university, the Sixth Form has an academic focus with many students aspiring to progress to Oxford, Cambridge and law and medical schools. However, we offer a very broad range of academic and vocational subjects at BTEC Level 2 and 3 and GCE A level and offer the opportunity for all students to develop Key Skills. The A level blocks are created from student preferences and aims to give maximum choice, allowing students to specialise in the Performing Arts, Sciences, Arts and Humanities if they wish.


We are proud of our strong pastoral system that supports students and helps them to achieve all they can academically, whilst also developing as individuals. OFSTED described student’s personal development in the Sixth Form as ‘outstanding’ stating that students ‘develop an impressive assuredness during their time in the Sixth Form and contribute well to the life of the school’. We offer a wide range of extra curricular activities including an Enterprise Conference, in which all students participate. The annual dramatic production is always of the highest quality, as one would expect in a school with Arts College status and always features performances from Sixth Form students. The school is traditional and formal in style but flexible and modern in outlook. Students are expected to maintain the highest personal standards of attitude and behaviour at all times. This includes conforming to a dress code that is smart and formal.
