Welcome to the Sixth Form

 

Message from Kesner Morris,

Director of Sixth Form
 

It gives me great pleasure to invite you to join our vibrant and successful Sixth Form of more than 200 students.

We are proud to celebrate our record breaking results achieved this summer. Nearly 60% were awarded A*- B. In addition, over a third of the cohort who have gone to university gained acceptance at prestigious Russell Group universities.

Studying with us allows you to access over 30 A-Level subjects and teaching of the highest level. In addition to our current subject portfolio, in 2016 we introduced a new applied general qualification in Criminology and Applied ICT as well as Applied A-Level in Business which is offered through our partnership with Haybridge. These new qualifications carry the same number UCAS points as A-Levels but contain a smaller element of examinations.

Our Sixth Form is known throughout the area for the consistently high quality of its examination results. If you are aiming for the some of the most prestigious institutions in the country, or some of the most competitive courses, such as Oxford, Cambridge, Medicine or Veterinary Medicine, then you can have confidence in our specialised programme that ensures we maintain an excellent record of examination success and top university destinations.

At the same time, we are a welcoming, inclusive community where every student is encouraged and challenged to achieve his or her full academic potential, regardless of their starting point. Alongside securing academic success we ensure that opportunities are provided to nurture every student’s needs and wants. For example, students have been supported to undertake a gap year teaching young children in deprived areas of Africa or Thailand.

Our examination results speak for themselves. However, what is harder for us to communicate is the ethos of our Sixth Form. This can be summed up in the phrase ‘family atmosphere’. Every student is known and supported as an individual member of our community. We want every student to enjoy and achieve, to be healthy and safe, to lay the foundations of their future economic well-being and to make a positive contribution to society. We are extremely proud of our sporting achievements as well as our repeated success at national debating competitions. We understand the value of supporting students to develop and that is why we have broadened our enrichment programme even further.

It is becoming increasingly apparent that the new reformed A-Levels are strengthened in terms of content and therefore we are advising students to select a package of 3 A-Levels and the EPQ.  You can be confident that we are addressing and embracing the changes positively and proactively.  Out exacting standards will ensure that you encounter exciting and stimulating learning experiences whatever changes are implemented.

Our Catholic Faith which inspires us to love God and to love our neighbour, as we try to stay faithful to the teachings of Christ creates the sense of being a family and sharing a common purpose. Consequently, the Sixth Form is a totally inclusive community that allows all students to be enriched academically, spiritually and morally. In essence, it is an exciting and happy environment to study where each individual is pushed to the highest standards and to give of their very best.

Director of post 16 studies

 

 

Message from The Sixth Form Committee

 

The Sixth Form at Hagley is a golden opportunity.

Not only will you work with a dedicated and talented team of teaching staff whose goal it is to help you reach your full potential and accomplish the goals you set yourself, you will also be able to participate in an array of life enhancing, horizon broadening opportunities that will help you find the person you really are.

Here at Hagley we actively encourage you to be involved, to try something new and to broaden your life experience in a non-academic fashion. Each member of the Sixth Form Committee brings different attributes to the team. As a committee we are all from diverse and varied social circles, yet, we are all a close group of friends; thus meaning we are committed to providing a focused, comfortable and thriving environment for all members of our school community.

Participating in the enrichment programme has enabled us to be more versatile, highlighting that enrichment and extra-curricular opportunities are superb foundations for being a Hagley Sixth Form student. Our enrichment activities offer a platform to take a relief from academia, while still furthering other aspects of education and social skills.

Here are some of the extra-curricular enrichment and horizon broadening activities you can and should strive to be involved in:

  • Performing Arts, Dance and Music clubs at Hagley are a large part of our Sixth Form and enable you to develop your performance skills.
  • Sport - Our Sixth Form offers a plethora of different sports such as netball, football and basketball, all of which are played at a variety of levels, with students of all abilities welcome.
  • A number of Sixth Formers have also undertaken courses in First Aid and Peer Mentoring, both of which offer an excellent chance to learn valuable skills.
  • Others have taken part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award, as well as the renowned pilgrimage trip to Lourdes, where students of religious or non-religious background bond closer together; year after year this has been a life changing experience for students and highlights in itself the proud Catholic ethos of Hagley Sixth Form
  • As well as two more recent additions to our enrichment programme, the first being the ‘Culture Vulture Club’ providing a basis to widen your cultural perspective, discuss our ever-changing social dynamics and allow your force to be heard. Secondly, Hagley’s version of ‘The Great British Bake Off’ gives you the ability to develop and show off your culinary skills. Both of which are fantastic opportunities to try something new and embodies the strong enrichment programme here at Hagley.

We strongly encourage you to take advantage and develop your interests through the fantastic opportunities provided at Hagley beyond the curriculum. These are great ways to learn important skills in a fun and active environment, offering you the chance to build personal interests and friendships with students from other subject areas and years.

Here at Hagley we provide an inviting and supportive atmosphere that will help to develop your school career and academic attainment, but also offer a comforting transition from life as a student, to life post 18. As your student representatives, we welcome and encourage you to approach us for any student support, in order to help with important decisions, enrolment opportunities and general student life here at Hagley.

The Sixth Form Committee
Phil Sadler, Niamh McGillion, Sean Mullins, Fran Mullen, Dominic Teboul and Olivia Dwyer.
