Sixth Form Welcome
St. Joan of Arc Sixth Form prides itself on providing the correct balance of high academic challenge and pastoral support whilst promoting the independence which will see each and every one of our students ready to embrace the challenges which their future lives will present.
We are confident that St. Joan of Arc Sixth Formers will receive the best holistic educational experience possible, whether they are continuing their education with us, or joining us from other schools. For the last four years, our A Level results have continued to improve on the previous year and this is testament to our hard working students and dedicated staff. In the summer of 2019, for the second year in succession, our A Level results saw St. Joan of Arc placed in the top 25% of A Level results nationally in terms of Level 3 value added. This means that, on average, the progress our students make during their time studying with us is amongst the strongest in the country. It also places us above most other Post-16 Education providers in the local area for progress made.
The importance of promoting independence in all of our students is an essential part of their development, however, we also recognise that there is still a need for a well-structured and supportive environment and we pride ourselves on the well established pastoral support that we offer. Our students are at the heart of everything that we do and our highly valued Student Executive Committee allows students to have their voices heard on the things that really matter to them in their school.
The Sixth Form building is at the centre of Sixth Form life, providing well equipped study facilities and an environment conducive to effective independent study. We know that our Sixth Form students feel proud to be part of our school community and we feel equally as proud of their achievements both during their time studying with us and beyond.
