Welcome to Sleaford Joint Sixth form
The Sleaford Joint Sixth Form is a collaboration of the co-educational sixth forms of Carre's Grammar School and St George's Academy.
Schools working together for their Post 16 students increase student choice, enlarge opportunities and enhance the academic and personal success of their students. Sleaford Joint Sixth Form is the collaboration of two of the schools in Sleaford which aims to achieve all those things for their Post 16 students.
The Joint Sixth Form is a longstanding institution in Sleaford. Carre's and St George's have worked together for over 25 years retaining their individuality and unique character whilst enabling students to enjoy everything that is on offer at each site. High standards of teaching and learning and academic success are well known features of each of the schools and students in the Joint Sixth Form benefit from working with highly qualified staff in excellent facilities.
Students already at either Carre's or St George's remain based at their original school. Students joining the Joint Sixth Form have a choice of being based at either school and will be counselled and advised during the application and induction process. Each year over 100 students have joined the Joint Sixth Form from schools other than St George's or Carre's and settled in very successfully. Setting the Standard
'A-levels are a big step up but Sleaford Joint Sixth Form gives you the tools to achieve.' STUDENT
The majority of students taking Level 3 (AS/A2/BTEC and Diploma) courses will take 4 subjects or their equivalent in year 12 and focus on three at A2. Staff are very approachable and keen to assist students outside the lesson times and the system of target setting and regular tracking not only motivates students but also helps the Sixth Form team of staff to monitor progress and identify potential problems, as well as particular talents. Academic work is enhanced by a wide range of the co-curricular activities which broaden the educational experience; including outside speakers to General Studies programme, visits to subject presentations at Nottingham and Lincoln Universities and field trips. Academic standards are high throughout the schools with a particular emphasis on the Sixth Form.
Students move on to a wide range of Higher Education institutions and employment opportunities. The minimum entry requirements for a programme of Level 3 courses is 5 GCSE subjects at A* - C including English and Maths with a B usually required for a subject already studied at GCSE. Academic vocational programmes such as the BTEC in Sport require evidence of success in the same subject area and of the ability to manage coursework. The transition from Level 2 to Level 3 is supported by induction activities at the beginning of year 12 and the tutorial and mentoring programmes.
