Welcome to Haydon School
Whether you are one of the vast majority of Haydon School students who choose to stay on for Years 12 and 13 or you are considering joining us from elsewhere, the Sixth Form at Haydon is an exciting place to learn. Judged by Ofsted as outstanding in every respect, we offer an unrivalled combination of academic success, exciting opportunities, great facilities and a welcoming community.
Through excellent teaching and pastoral support from experienced staff, our Sixth Formers achieve strong examination results; these enable many of them to proceed to their first choice of degree course, with a significant number gaining a place at Oxbridge and other Russell Group universities.
Besides your studies, you will be able to take part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities, enrichment opportunities and community work that will not only provide camaraderie but will also enhance your UCAS application and employability. With new and attractive study and recreational areas and an excellent rapport between students and staff, Haydon’s Sixth Form provides a great springboard to your future career.
This is clearly borne out by our examination results. In 2014 the Year 13 A-level and BTEC National results were excellent: just over 50% of grades were at A* to B and 77% at A* to C. The school broke its record for A* grades with 8.7% of entries graded A* up from the previous best of 4.8% in June 2013. The total number of students going on to University in September 2014 currently stands at 178. In Year 12 the results were also outstanding. Leading the way was the 20% of Haydon students awarded the highest grade of A. The previous record was 14%. The A to B at 37% and the A to C at 55% also beat previous records resulting in the 2014 AS results being the best ever.
