Welcome to Islington Sixth Form Consortium (IC6)
IC6 was established in 2004 and is the joint sixth forms of Central Foundation Boys' School, Highbury Grove School, Highbury Fields School and St Aloysius' College. We provide outstanding sixth form education in a friendly, supportive and productive learning
Over 700 students enrolled at IC6 in September 2012. A large number of our students come from outside the four partner schools that make up IC6.
We are exceptionally proud of our achievements last year:
• 'Outstanding' value added (ALPS)
• 99% Achievement
• Highest in Local Authority
• 10% A*- twice National Average
• Value Added Top 5% London
In 2010-11 IC6 was inspected by Ofsted twice and received one of only 13 'outstanding' grades nationally for sixth forms. IC6 was described by Ofsted as having many 'outstanding features'; the systems in place for monitoring and supporting students across IC6 were praised as 'excellent' and the curriculum and student achievement were highlighted as 'outstanding'.
IC6 provides a focused and adult environment in which students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning.
Enabled by the broad curriculum we can offer we provide expert advice and guidance to ensure you are placed on the appropriate course at this crucial stage of your education.
A key factor in the success of IC6 is that all of our 700+ students can access the facilities and expertise associated with each school. Drawing on the combined resources, teaching qualities and strengths of our four partner schools we aspire to develop a culture of learning underpinned by a strong commitment to individual student welfare.
All four members of IC6 are specialist schools and therefore have specialist facilities, wider portfolios and expert staff.
Central Foundation Boys' School Specialist Business and Enterprise School
Highbury Fields School Specialist Science and Maths School

Progress and achievement are closely monitored and supported by highly experienced, motivated and dedicated teachers and support staff. Weekly tutorials and termly reports allow for the monitoring of agreed targets.
Progression from the consortium to universities and employment is excellent and students are closely guided on their career paths by a strong careers and higher education support team who can advise on careers and higher education and who offer specialist guidance on the University Application Process (UCAS).
