We are a mixed comprehensive school with an excellent academic and pastoral record. We are very proud to have one of the largest Sixth Forms in Dacorum and that, in our Ofsted report, we received the classification of 'outstanding'. Our aim is to maintain and surpass this status.
The ethos of the Sixth Form is one which places great emphasis on individual needs and pastoral care in order to ensure every student is successful. We have a rigorous system of tracking student progress and invest quality time in intervention strategies. The interventions are throughout both years in order to help the students fulfil all of their potential. Pastoral guidance for students is extensive and they are supported to become well rounded individuals. Ofsted state that 'Sixth Form leaders and tutors provide exceptional guidance, care and support'.
Courses in the Sixth Form require a high level of intellectual ability and commitment to work; it is paramount that students select courses that are appropriate to their ability. A good guide to identify the most suitable pathway is to use the GCSE total point score (TPS) system; this gives a true reflection of a student's current ability and has proved a reliable tool in deciding on the correct courses.
As a Church of England school, our faith is central to our long commitment to education and all that we do is grounded in our Christian Ethos.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Sixth Form.
