Maplesden Sixth Form is a successful school recognised for having high academic expectations of all its students, as well as providing a strong and caring pastoral system to support students as they move through the school. We believe these key elements
help us to provide an environment in which students flourish and have the opportunity to reach their potential.
Our Sixth Form is well established and offers a comprehensive range of traditional and vocational courses. In addition to our own students we welcome students from other schools and hope that they will quickly feel part of a vibrant and forward thinking
community. We provide individual support, advice, and careers guidance to all our students and endeavour to develop them as mature independent learners equipped with the skills needed for university or their future careers.
Entering post 16 education requires considerable thought. Students are faced with new opportunities and freedoms, but with these come increased responsibilities and pressures. Staff at Maplesden Noakes are highly qualified, enthusiastic and dedicated.
They will use their expertise to help bridge that gap between GCSEs and post 16 courses of study.
To create a successful Sixth Form the school has to be flexible and challenged to meet the varied needs of its students. It needs to be able to respond to the ever-changing demands of the workplace and, at the same time, develop the students’ academic
potential and social development. At Maplesden Noakes we achieve this by offering a broad range of educational opportunities where learning takes place beyond the classroom, enrichment programmes are available for all, and a range of social functions are organised
and supported by the students.
We hope that you will want to become part of our Sixth Form community. If you are looking for a Sixth Form with a positive learning ethos, a balanced and innovative curriculum and one that respects students as young adults, all within a supportive and
caring environment, then Maplesden Sixth Form is the ideal choice.
I hope our Prospectus and forthcoming Opportunities Evening give you the necessary information you need to make an informed choice about your future education.
Good luck in your examinations and we look forward to welcoming you to our Sixth Form in September 2018
