Welcome to the Southern Consortium Sixth Form. We are an ambitious academic sixth form whose aim is to ensure that every student fulfils their potential. We achieve this through excellent teaching and learning in the classroom and regular robust assessments throughout all courses which allows both teacher and student to measure the progress being made in chosen subjects and fill any gaps in knowledge and understanding.
Our excellent exam results at both A Level and Vocational Level 3 courses provides evidence of our success. National statistics show, that on average, students achieve more than half a grade higher at the Southern Consortium Sixth Form.
Progress rates to University are outstanding, with more than 85% of students leaving us to join University or start an Apprenticeship. Of those that progress to University, more than one in four attend Russell Group Universities. We have strong links with a number of high status Higher Education institutions, such as University of the Arts London and Kings College. Our students have the opportunity to participate in a number of prestigious aspiration programmes, such as K+, receiving mentoring regarding their chosen career paths.
We also appreciate that it is important that students are provided with opportunities to develop a wide range of skills that are valued by both Universities and employers alike. Our Enhancement programme includes Duke of Edinburgh Award, Young Enterprise, Sports Leaders, Paired Reading, as well as charitable activities, such as, First Give.
All students that join the Southern Consortium Sixth Form are supported by a well-staffed sixth form team. As well as your Form Tutor, you will also have regular contact with the sixth form Vice Principal and Assistant Head of Sixth Form, as well as the Higher Education Co-ordinator, and for some students, who require additional support, an Academic Mentor.
By joining the Southern Consortium Sixth Form you are making a solid investment in yourself and your future. I would encourage you to apply as early as possible, and attend one of our Open Events either in the autumn or summer term and view our state of the art facilities.
