Why study at Saint Benedict Sixth Form
OPEN EVENING 2017 – this year it will take place on Thursday 9th November, running from 6pm until 9pm. The event takes place in the Robert Ludlam Theatre in North Block. Headteacher speeches at 6:15 and 7:15.
Our staff will have high expectations. We will expect you to work independently, making the best use of our Post 16 study facilities. Our teachers will challenge you in lessons and push you to reach the grades that you are capable of. Your personal tutor will encourage you to play a full role in your tutor group, your house and Saint Benedict.
We will provide the support that you will need to achieve excellence. Our sixth form team will ease the transition from Year 11 to Year 12, and offer advice and guidance throughout your time here. Our non-teaching sixth form coordinator has an open door policy, and is available for students on a daily basis. Subject teachers will monitor your progress carefully, providing focussed support quickly when it is needed.
Our careers advisor will assist you with preparing for the next stage of your life, whether you aspire to university, training or employment.
Routes to Success
Our curriculum has been carefully chosen to match the needs and aspirations of our students.
The majority of our students study a traditional A Level programme. We offer a large number of A Level courses, including facilitating subjects, which are the subjects most often valued by established universities.
Alongside this we offer a small number of vocational and technical courses.
Level 3 subjects
Applied Business English Combined Physics
Level 2 subjects
Our sixth formers have exclusive access to Elmwood, our sixth form centre. Three large study rooms, each with ICT facilities, provide plenty of places to work during study periods and after school. Our study room is dedicated to silent study, whilst another allows for group work. A third study area has dedicated media facilities.
Elmwood also has a sixth form common room for those times when you need to relax!
As sixth formers, you will have access to the library, where laptops are available, as well as books, newspapers and periodicals, during and after school.
