Sixth Form at Clayesmore

At Clayesmore we recognise the twenty-first century workplace is a complex and rapidly changing environment that requires young people leaving school to be adaptable, flexible and to possess a broad range of skills and knowledge.

Clayesmore’s Sixth Form offers small classes where pupils can pursue their chosen subjects and be given the environment and support to excel in them while they also develop essential life skills to thrive beyond school.    

The Sixth Form offers a time to try new things, from running a business, chairing debates in Model United Nations, becoming a leader in House, in the Theatre, the CCF, Sport, Music or as part of the community service programme. Pupils are offered the opportunity to do work experience, network with former pupils, enjoy an internship and generally gain the skills and confidence for adult life. During this time, sport can also be taken to the highest level, including gaining coaching qualifications. 

There are opportunities to lead others, and to make a positive and active contribution as prefects, mentors and leaders within the Houses and the school.

The Head of Sixth Form, Head of Careers and academic tutors will guide and support pupils through the two years of Sixth Form, and mentor individuals through the university application process or professional apprenticeship applications.

You can read more about the courses which are available, and life in our Sixth Form, in the Sixth Form Prospectus & Course Directory.

“Joining the Sixth Form is a really important step. Pupils will remember it for years to come as a time of hard work and good fun, as well as an opportunity to form lasting friendships.

There really is something for everyone in Clayesmore’s Sixth Form. It will provide the confidence , ambition and compassion to take on the challenges of the wider world.”
