6th form

Trinity has a dynamic, creative and successful Sixth Form. Housed in the Carliol Building, the Sixth Form Centre provides an ideal learning environment for young adults. The Sixth Form is a separate area and operates like a college within a school. With around 350 students, Trinity Sixth Form is one of the largest school sixth forms in Cumbria attracting many students from other local schools and even further afield, and is a tribute to the excellent work being done by both students and staff.

We currently offer students a choice of over 30 A Level and Level 3 BTEC courses, both academic and vocational. We provide a great deal of support through our Pathways system to ensure that students are on courses which are appropriate to their abilities and ambitions. In addition we also offer a range of accredited enrichment opportunities including Duke of Edinburgh, Young Enterprise and Sports Leaders.

We are proud that students achieve highly at Trinity Sixth Form and that over 80% of students go on to the university of their Choice, 32% of which were top Russell Group universities in 2013. Our well qualified and experienced staff know how to support and guide students through the post 16 education process and OfSTED described pastoral care as ‘exemplary’.

As young adults, Sixth Form students need to be given the chance to take on more responsibility for their learning. At the same time, we recognise that the transition to independence is not an easy one and therefore, we provide clear guidance about our expectations of behaviours, study habits and attendance.

Whether you are currently at Trinity School or considering joining us from elsewhere, we hope that you will find opportunities that are right for you with us.
