Welcome to Ashton Park School
Ashton Park Sixth Form is a well-established school Sixth Form and is a thriving learning community with over 200 students, studying a wide range of vocational and academic courses. Many of our students go onto to university, having studied AS / A levels or BTECs chosen from a range of 28 ‘Level 3’ courses. Our A Level and BTEC students experience academic success, as a result of their commitment and hard work, the support they receive from home and the expertise, dedication and inspiration of Ashton Park staff who nurture each student so that he or she can fulfil their academic and personal potential.
The Sixth Form is open to all students, not only from the School itself, but also from schools across Bristol and especially from neighbouring schools. Our reputation for improving academic standards and excellent support make us a popular choice for students seeking good quality teaching in small groups. We offer a high level of support for all students with a personal tutor and great facilities for independent study. You are encouraged to take part in a wide range of enrichment activities including sport, performing and creative arts, outdoor education, community volunteering and peer mentoring. You will have the chance to get involved in trips, visits and expeditions; everything you do will look great on your CV!
We hope that your Sixth Form Education will provide you with a stepping stone to studying at University or College, securing an Apprenticeship or gaining Employment. We aim to provide you with the necessary information, advice, support and guidance to make the right choices. Ashton Park is, above all, a happy and inclusive sixth form, a place where students work hard and where they also find friendship, enrichment and support. We have a commitment to “life-long learning” and are confident that each student who comes to us will be well prepared for the exciting challenges of the 21st Century.
