Welcome to the Sixth Form

I am delighted to introduce the Joseph Rowntree Sixth Form prospectus. I hope this will give you a taste of what we offer and will encourage you to explore your future with us.

We are proud to have a vibrant Sixth Form with a strong identity and clear vision. Our aim is to inspire students to achieve to the best of their ability with a lot of fun as a Sixth Form along the way.

Our students enjoy both academic success and personal achievement. They are stimulated to learn in a challenging but relaxed atmosphere and are supported every step of their journey with us. This support is considered a real strength of our Sixth Form and students appreciate it highly. The number of former students that maintain links with the school is testament to the positive experience that they received.

We have an excellent record of progression into higher education, with almost all students gaining a place at their first choice institution. Our students graduate from universities across the country in courses from medicine to law and social sciences to engineering.

Alternatively, for those looking to other options, we offer an increasing range of opportunities to explore pathways such as apprenticeships. Sixth Form students enjoy a different perspective on school life, with increased freedom and responsibility for their own learning. As such we promote a broad and rounded experience through enrichment lessons, personal development and social occasions. Through this we hope that you will flourish as an individual and gain employability skills that will benefit you in the future.

With two Student Presidents leading an enthusiastic Sixth Form Committee you will be encouraged to become actively involved in all that we do. Whatever subjects you choose, we are certain that you will thoroughly enjoy Joseph Rowntree Sixth Form and make the most of the opportunities it will bring.
