Welcome to Sixth Form

At SWPS we take pride in providing inspirational teaching and extensive extra-curricular opportunities combined with sector leading pastoral care. Our Sixth Form students understand that hard work, tenacity and academic curiosity are vital to success; and they accept challenges with determination and good humour.

SWPS is a school that cultivates ambition, fostering a desire to broaden horizons, push boundaries, ask questions and take risks. Every student entering SWPS Sixth Form is welcomed into a close-knit community, where they are supported on their individual journey and prepared for life beyond school.

A move to Sixth Form represents a large jump in workload and greater challenges. Some students may need a little help in managing this, so we offer a wealth of support to help with the transition:

  • Year 12 preparatory work booklet

  • One-to-one tutoring in small tutor groups (of 10-12)

  • Academic mentoring in addition to form tutors

  • A focused Life Skills course on developing an A level mindset

  • Individual action plans for students who require extra support in assessments, public exams or are generally finding things more challenging

  • A range of drop-in clinics and structured revision plans

  • A silent study room available in the Sixth Form Centre
