With some of the best results in Norfolk, Sheringham Sixth Form is an inclusive, caring place to study.
We pride ourselves on our academic track record as well as our guidance and support. We support you when needed, but give you the freedom to develop and grow as individuals. Whether you have aspirations to be a student at a renowned university, or the most employable applicant in a professional context, Sheringham Sixth Form will help you on your way.
At a time when the pressure is on for all students to achieve their full potential, we can equip you with the knowledge, skills and qualifications to enable you to compete academically and professionally. Our small class sizes coupled with inspiring, skilled teaching will provide the foundations for your future success.
“Our students achieve great results – the class of 2016 had an A* to C pass rate at A2 of 82%. Over a quarter of students gained an A* or A
grade, with nearly half achieved grades A* to B. More than 80% of students in a number of subjects received an A* to C grade.”
These successes are the result of hard work and commitment from our students, coupled with inspiring and engaging teaching from our talented and motivated staff. Our small class sizes and first class facilities are other important elements to success.
We treat each student as an individual, which means we tailor advice and support to meet your needs.
Our prestigious Scholarship Programme is open to students who have the potential to attend the very best Russell Group universities or Oxbridge. Students who participate in the programme are provided with learning opportunities beyond the formal curriculum, which help to develop further their critical and analytical thinking skills.
In 2016 our excellent results led to over 40% of our students gaining places at leading Russell Group and Oxbridge universities.
We provide a wide range of enrichment activities for our students, such as coaching junior sports teams, becoming a ‘Student Ambassador’ and volunteering within the community, or working with disabled children, joining the ‘Eco Team’ and being a peer supporter. Through these you can discover new skills and give something back, whilst gaining valuable experience to include in your university or job applicaitons.
You can also have your say in how the Sixth Form itself is run – who better to shape our facilities to be the best for our students?
We encourage you to be yourself and to try new things, all within a safe and supportive environment. This is your time to discover and develop your aspirations and we can offer expert guidance to help nurture those ideas and begin to make them a reality.
Our induction programme begins at the end of June with a range of academic and extracurricular activities to begin to adjust to life as a Sixth Former, develop new skills and to have fun. The programme continues into the first term of Year 12, with regular one to one support for academic progress and personal wellbeing so you can get the most out of the Sheringham Sixth Form experience.
Newly opened in 2016, the ‘Canopy’ is a new eating and meeting area for the Sixth Form. It is open all day for Sixth Formers and is the ideal place to recharge both your batteries and those of your devices, and for catching up with your peers. Pick up a coffee, chat, work or maybe reschedule a tutorial; it’s a great facility.
Whatever your aspirations, our role is to help you be the best you can be.
