TRINITY SIXTH FORM CENTRE

 

6th form

Trinity Sixth Form Centre is a successful, creative and lively learning environment; it is a great place to study and progress to higher education or employment. With around 300 students, Trinity Sixth Form is one of the largest in Cumbria attracting many students from other local schools and even further afield. In May 2015 Ofsted rated the Sixth Form as ‘Outstanding’; this is a tribute to the excellent work being done by both students and staff.

Our results are also excellent. The summer 2015 and 2016 exam results for Years 12 & 13 put us in the top 25% of schools nationally for added value from GCSE results and approximately 100 students in Year 13 went on to university with approximately 30% going to the prestigious Russell Group Universities.

“Achievement in the sixth form has improved steadily over the last three years as a result of increasingly outstanding teaching” Ofsted 2015

We currently offer students a choice of over 30 A Levels and vocational courses. We offer a broad range of A Level courses from Chemistry to Law as well as a range of vocational qualifications including Child Care and Science. This allows us to personalise our curriculum for the needs of each individual student.

“The sixth form offers a good range of academic and vocational courses to enable students to follow different routes after Year 13” Ofsted 2015

Trinity Sixth Form students have an outstanding choice of many extra-curricular activities to get involved with, including: The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Trinity Theatre Company, Sport, Debating, Young Enterprise and international visits to Europe and India – there are many opportunities for students to enjoy and build their skills outside of the classroom.

“The extra-curricular opportunities enjoyed by students develop excellent skills for life after school, whether that be apprenticeships, university or the world of work” Ofsted 2015

We have excellent pastoral care and facilities. Sixth Form students have their own dedicated team of pastoral support staff who provide guidance for all students in the Sixth Form. Each student belongs to a mixed Year 12 and 13 tutor group made up of approximately 20-25 students. Form Tutors work individually with students to support their learning and monitor their progress by having regular interviews and mentoring sessions. In addition each student is supported by a Student Manager, who is there to oversee this process, and an Information, Advice and Guidance Officer who also helps point students in the right direction.

Students in the Sixth Form have access to superb facilities. These include well equipped science labs, high specification ICT rooms, large music and drama studios and a recording studio. In addition to all this the Sixth Form Centre has its own dedicated building, the Carliol Building, which has also recently upgraded to include a modern Bistro and access to ICT equipment and study areas.

We do all we can to bring out the very best in every student.
