Welcome by the Head Teacher.
We are delighted that you are considering applying to Archbishop Holgate’s Sixth Form. This prospectus is designed to highlight how much we have to offer, not least the outstanding choice and support to help you achieve and succeed at Sixth Form.
The next step on your educational journey - the transition to Sixth Form study - is an extremely important one. Having worked hard for your GCSE qualifications, you need to make sure that the choices you now make are the right ones.
As a former head of a successful Sixth Form, I know better than most what is required to help you fulfil your potential at Sixth Form. There is no better feeling for me than seeing students achieve the necessary grades and qualifications to move on to university or the world of work. Such success is no accident.
For this to happen there must be a combination of academic rigour and pastoral care of the highest quality, outstanding teaching and learning complemented by structures that monitor progress and intervene to provide individual support for each and every student. Archbishop Holgate’s has an outstanding reputation for doing exactly this and as a member of our Sixth Form this is exactly what you will receive.
At Archbishop Holgate’s we are committed to ensuring that all students will have the choice, support and challenge to achieve and succeed. We have listened to the views of the community we serve and, working in partnership with parents and students, we are committed to providing a fully inclusive curriculum that meets the needs and aspirations of all our students.
I hope our website will show you that Archbishop Holgate’s Sixth Form is the right choice for you.
