Sir William Robertson Academy Sixth Form is proud to be a small, formal Sixth Form based in a rural setting committed to the academic success of its students.
Since the Sixth Form began in 2012, it has gone from strength to strength. We have upheld a 100% A Level and Level 3 BTEC pass rate for the past three years and have seen our students move on to fantastic destinations. Universities our students are bound for in September 2018 include University College London, Nottingham, Sheffield, Newcastle and Lincoln. Students undertaking apprenticeships have begun placements with companies such as BAE Systems and RPS.
We achieve our excellent results through careful, personalised curriculum planning, committed teaching, rigorous assessment and tracking of student progress and regular supportive guidance for our students. We aim to treat each student as an individual and cater for his or her specific needs.
We have the highest expectations of all of our students and demonstrate this through an unwavering commitment to our Code of Conduct and Working Agreement. We believe that by consistently applying these expectations – from high attendance to a formal business dress code – we can develop excellent habits in our young people.
We proudly prepare our students for the demands of life after Sixth Form. We ensure that our students have unique opportunities to have experiences beyond their studies through our Enrichment programme, which ensures our students develop into well-rounded individuals.
All Year 12 students undertake at least one week of relevant work experience alongside planned sessions about work readiness including CV building and interview preparation. We have various guest speakers in to challenge our students’ thinking and students lead a variety of clubs including debating, sports and marketing.
