Boothferry Sixth is a friendly local Sixth Form that offers a wide range of courses to suit all abilities. It is based on two sites at Vermuyden and Howden School, with a bus running between them. Students can study subjects at GCSE level (level 2 courses) or A Level courses (level 3 courses) or a combination of both.
Student Facilities include a study area. An extensive university reference library is also available containing up to date University prospectuses. A common room is available for use during free lessons with comfortable settees, food and drink making facilities and a pool table.
Students receive a connexions reward card and may also qualify for Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA) of up to Ł30 per week. We are very successful at helping you improve. All students are given target grades based on performace at GCSE level. Independent analysis shows that our students do better than expected.
WE ADD VALUE. IN 2005 WE WERE RATED EXCELLENT FOR VALUE ADDED
