The Sixth Form here at Westonbirt provides a fantastic opportunity for our students to pursue their chosen subjects at a much deeper level, with plenty of support in how they approach their lessons, how to do effective research and how to apply this to their studies. The tutorial system allows them to develop genuine relationships with their fellow students and the teachers with whom they have contact.
Mr Holland, Sixth Form Tutor
Westonbirt Sixth Form is a place for you to develop your academic, extra-curricular, and social potential. We pride ourselves on providing a warm and caring environment that enables you to be yourself, learn how to handle a wide variety of situations, and achieve the best possible academic results.
It is a testimony to our excellent pastoral care that students come to us from around the world, and even local students often choose to spend their evenings and weekends with us.
Since the changes to the way A-Levels now work, the majority of our students study three A-Levels. Because of the increased dedication and curriculum time this allows, it enables students to achieve the best possible results when it comes to university offers through UCAS. In order to extend a passion for learning, all students begin to undertake the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) developing independent research skills, and following an area of personal curiosity. In addition to this we offer a plethora of extra-curricular activities in which sixth formers take a leading role.
I like to think of Westonbirt as a place that gives its pupils the opportunity to develop the right kind of independence. Where it comes to academic work, we provide a supportive environment that encourages and fosters self-discipline; where extra-curricular opportunities present themselves, our students develop their leadership potential and organisational skills. In the end, they grow into the sort of young people that universities and employers desire: those with the organisational and social skills to enrich their environment and with the confidence and ability to hold and present themselves wherever they go.
I am very happy to meet prospective parents, please contact us to arrange a time to suit you. For more information please contact our admissions team.
