Welcome to Sandhurst School
I am delighted you are showing an interest in our sixth form which is very much part of what makes our school such a great place to learn. The strong relationships between staff and students developed in the lower years ensure that students who enter the
sixth form are confident they will be supported and challenged throughout their studies by staff who know them well.
At Sandhurst we have a knowledgeable and dedicated staff whose enthusiasm for their subjects is clearly demonstrated in sixth form lessons.Sixth form students play a vital role in our school as ambassadors and role models and are held in high regard by younger students, staff and members of the public.
As well as excellent classroom teaching we can provide you with many opportunities to develop skills and qualifications that will help you stand out from the crowd when it comes to university and job applications.
Currently, careers information is provided during tutorial periods and in interviews with the specialist Careers Officer. Mrs Heidi Nicholls, our Work Related Learning Co-ordinator, has a well-stocked Careers Library which is of particular value to students. Information on Higher Education is also kept in the Sixth Form area and students access the careers room on Sandhurst Digital Campus.
All Year 12 students will undertake one week’s work experience, which will take place towards the end of the summer term. This should be related to a possible career path or to a subject being studied in the Sixth Form.
Our Careers Advisor is also available to support students. Mr Bishop, Senior Sixth Form Tutor, organises and supports students in the admissions procedure for university.
Recent headline results show our Sixth Form goes from strength-to-strength with 100% of students achieving their first choice university place, 47% achieving A* to B grades and 72% achieving A* to C grades, including A Levels and BTEC qualifications. Having started their courses, 97% of students go on to complete their programme of study.
