Welcome to Highams Park School
Highams Park is a mixed 11-18 voluntary aided comprehensive school. Since 1st September 1997 it has been a government designated specialist Technology College. In September 2007 the government designated the school as a High Performing Specialist School (HPSS) and we added Sport to become a specialist Technology and Sports College. We are now inviting applications for our very popular and successful 6th form. Information and course descriptions can be found here or on our website www.highamspark.waltham.sch.uk. Read on for more information. We believe the experience we offer provides the best possible preparation for higher education and employment. This is borne out by our exam results year on year and the numerous ex-sixth formers now at universities and other institutions of higher education. Many are in their final years following degree courses as various as Mathematics and Scientific Journalism at Cambridge (shown in the picture on the right) and Business Studies at Portsmouth as well as those that went directly into the world of work. We welcome students who have been in other schools for year 11, we work hard to make sure you soon fit in at Highams Park. Unlike many other 6th forms we want to give all students who have the potential a chance to succeed. We don't just accept those with outstanding GCSE results, although many students here do have such results, but try to include those with more modest results. If you have the minimum entry requirements and the potential to achieve a pass, we will try to find the right course for you. The atmosphere in the Sixth Form is busy but friendly, challenging but supportive. Students are encouraged to be become fully involved in the life of the Sixth Form and in the whole school. I hope you will find these pages helpful and they answer any questions you may have regarding your application. Over recent years we have seen the 6th Form grow in size with more and more students going on to University and Higher Education. Double the number of students go on to University courses than was the case five years ago. Exam results are very good, 98% of A-level entries pass. Those students that work hard and want to succeed will do so in our 6th Form.
