Being surrounded by bright, motivated and engaging young people who are determined to make the very best of the two most important and exciting years of their school education, is a real privilege for me and my team. And seeing the level of success our students achieve year on year (which has made The Grange Sixth Form one of the most consistently successful in the whole country) is almost as rewarding as knowing the value that we have added in helping out students achieve those results.
Small class sizes (average around 8) permit both personalised learning and the terrific relationships between students and staff that are a hallmark of the school as a whole. In addition, Grange Sixth Formers play a vital role in the life of the school, and are encouraged to play as full a part as possible in leading and helping its younger members through the many positions of leadership and responsibility available. This, along with high quality opportunities for sport, music, drama, outdoor pursuits, travel, charitable endeavours and the like (as well as access to personalised higher education, careers, study and welfare advice), means that The Grange Sixth Form offers an all-round post-16 experience that is hard to match for its impact and success…and enjoyment!
All this in the fantastic new surroundings of the school’s purpose-built and brand new Sixth Form Centre, which have considerably enhanced a section of the school of which we are already very proud!
Why not come and see us? It would be lovely to meet you.
Mr Jamie Walker
Head of Sixth Form
