Sixth Form General Information
We are delighted you are thinking about joining Heysham High Sixth Form. Whether you have been with us since Year 7 or you are currently at a different school, making an informed decision about your future is really important.
In September, 2014, our sixth form students will benefit from a total refurbishment of the Sixth Form block. It will create a contemporary, well equipped and pleasant working and relaxing area for our sixth form students, with its own separate entrance from the main school. Click here to see the plans.
Heysham High Sixth Form offers a diverse range of subjects at different levels to suit all learners.
We are very proud of the students in our care; every day we are lucky enough to work with students at an important and exciting time in their lives, and whether it be teaching, watching their performance or chatting in the corridor, helping them with their university applications or talking through a student’s approach to learning, no day is the same.
Our Sixth Form has a crucial part to play in the life of the school and the community. We not only help individuals gain the academic results they want to achieve but, importantly, we also help them develop into fully rounded, compassionate young adults, ready to move on in the world. Students are required to approach their studies with the commitment and determination to be successful. Teaching staff and tutors are always available to advise and support students who require guidance.
We encourage our Sixth Form students to develop time management and study skills, essential for their futures.
Many Faculties organise annual events, including field trips, theatre visits, international and local art visits and language exchanges. We also offer many different subjects and an array of extra curricular and enrichment activities; whethr it be Duke of Edinburgh, Elite Sport programmes, charity fund raising events, sporting activities, UCAS workshops, university taster days, placements at primary schools, hair and beauty salons or local community venues. All this compined makes us a very special Sixth Form with high expectations of students as well as an understanding that students may need extra support and guidance from time to time.
We look forward very much to the prospect of working with you for what we are sure will be two thoroughly enjoyable years.
