The Priory School Sixth form is a thriving and dynamic organisation which is growing in size every year. We offer a wide range of courses for all abilities which include the traditional academic as well as a variety of new, popular subjects and a wide range of vocational courses.
We are extremely fortunate to have a purpose built two-storey building complete with multi IT rooms, Learning resource Centre and Common Room.
While the principle aim is for each student to fulfil their academic/ vocational potential, we also strongly believe that a sixth form education should offer opportunities for the individual to develop their social skills. To this end, every sixth form student is automatically a member of the sixth form committee, which is the principle student body through which all events whether charity, social or sporting are debated, organised and run.
As each student progresses through their course of study, they are regularly assessed and closely monitored by a dedicated team of sixth form tutors and teaching staff to ensure they are attaining their target grades. Profiles are issued on a termly basis for students and their parents. The Priory School operates an open door policy in the sixth form, so any students with concerns can book an appointment to meet with their tutor or Head of Sixth Form whenever necessary. This also applies to parents.
We believe the most successful post 16 education occurs when an open and honest 3 way dialogue between the student, their parent/ carer and the school takes place. We are confident that our students' experience in our sixth form will have been worthwhile, enlightening, enjoyable and, ultimately, successful.
