Welcome to the Sixth Form

 

Message from Kesner Morris,

Director of Post 16 Studies

Welcome to the highest performing Sixth Form for progress in the local area.

It gives me great pleasure to invite you to join our vibrant and successful Sixth Form of more than 200 students. Students at Hagley Sixth Form make outstanding progress and this is evident in our results.  Government figures show we are the highest performing Sixth Form in terms of progress in the local area.  We are proud to celebrate our record-breaking results achieved this summer. Nearly 60% were awarded A*- B and an impressive 26% achieved A* - A. 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 26 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 and these Courses are proving to be highly successful.  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.

Message from The Sixth Form Committee

The Sixth Form at Hagley provides a warm and nurturing Post 16 experience. Students massively benefit from the dedicated and talented staff who work to ensure growth and progress throughout the two years of Sixth Form.  Whilst study is a huge part of the experience, we offer much more with our community feel, enrichment and social events that help alleviate the weight put on students by A-Levels.

What is unique about Hagley is its strong support system in place to ensure that from day one you are cared for and guided to success.  Form Tutors provide a backbone for students to aid their personal development and fortify consistency across the board, whilst teachers help us thrive in the academic side of the Sixth Form.

Our bespoke and varied enrichment activities offer students a broad range of opportunities to which they are able to enhance themselves.  Regardless of your interests or ability, you will find something to refine your Sixth Form experience and enable you to widen your social circle.  As part of the enrichment program we offer: -

•       Sport - Our Sixth Form offers a plethora of different sports such as netball, football, basketball and an annual ski trip, all of which are played at a variety of levels, with students of all abilities welcome and the possibility of competitive fixtures.

•       Others have taken part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award, year after year this has been a life-changing experience for students and a highlight of Hagley Sixth Form.

•       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 voice 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 are fantastic opportunities to try something new and embodies the strong enrichment programme here at Hagley.

•       Performing Arts, Dance and Music clubs at Hagley are a large part of our Sixth Form and enable you to develop your performance skills.

•       Work experience is another part of the programme for those students who would like to practise for further employment or gain practical skills not accessible within the school environment.

Our inclusive environment based on our strong Catholic ethos creates a welcoming atmosphere to all, which incorporates and encourages worship in your journey to success.

Our main goal at Hagley is not only to provide you with an enjoyable two years but to prepare you for life after Sixth Form.  Regardless of your future pathway, Hagley Sixth Form will strive to help you reach your full potential and become a well-rounded adept individual.

We, as your student representatives, will work our hardest to create a comfortable and friendly feel with the social events organised throughout the year, including the Fresher’s events, Year 12 Garden Party and Year 13 Ball.  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.
