Sixth Form

Welcome to Farringtons Sixth Form, where academic excellence meets individual support and a vibrant community spirit. Our comprehensive academic offering encompass both A level courses and vocational options, ensuring that every student finds their path to success. With small class sizes, we prioritise personalised attention and supervision, fostering an environment where students can thrive academically and personally.

Our Sixth Form is Guided by Clear Aims

  • Empowering students to reach their academic potential
  • Cultivating confidence and independence
  • Fostering a sense of responsibility

At Farringtons, we pride ourselves on striking the perfect balance in size. With approximately 120 students, our Sixth Form provides a diverse range of subjects while maintaining a close-knit, family atmosphere. This size allows for flexibility in course combinations and ensures that each student receives individualised support throughout their academic journey.

Students in our Sixth Form actively engage in the life of the school community, assuming leadership roles and contributing to decision-making processes through the School Council. This interaction not only enhances their sense of responsibility but also strengthens the bond among students across different year groups.

Daily meetings with Form Tutors offer students the opportunity for regular academic and personal guidance, ensuring that any challenges are addressed promptly and effectively. We prioritise collaboration with parents to support students in achieving their full potential.

Our tailored Sixth Form programme equips students with the skills necessary for A Level study and beyond. Through increased autonomy in organising independent study and participation in diverse extra-curricular activities, students develop crucial life skills and expand their horizons.

Furthermore, our students have the opportunity to undertake challenges such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award and participate in debating and public speaking events, both within and beyond the school community, enriching their educational experience.

As students prepare for their next steps after Sixth Form, whether it be university or other endeavours, we provide extensive support through extension activities, visiting speakers, cultural visits, and extra-curricular courses, ensuring they are well-prepared and equipped to excel in their chosen paths.

Join us at Farringtons Sixth Form, where every student is empowered to flourish academically, socially, and personally.

University

In the competitive landscape of university admissions, institutions seek students who are not only academically accomplished but also well-rounded individuals with a thirst for knowledge and a drive to make a difference. We nurture that through enriching experiences:

  • Deep dives: students explore passions with initiatives like the Extended Project Qualification
  • Expert insights: students gain valuable perspectives beyond the classroom from visiting speakers on diverse topics
  • Global exposure: students broaden horizons through cultural visits, immersing themselves in different cultures
  • Skill expansion: with a wide range of extra-curricular courses, from languages to leadership to arts
