In This Section

The Highcrest Academy Sixth Form is made up from approximately 160 students divided into mixed Year12 and 13 tutor groups. We offer a wide range of Level 2 and 3 courses and the timetable is constructed round the choices made by individual students ensuring all students can study their preferred combination of subjects. The majority of our current Year 11 students are expected to continue into the Sixth Form; however, we do welcome applications for Year 12 from external students.

We pride ourselves on excellent, small group teaching and one-to-one support when required, whilst every student is viewed as an individual with individual needs. A great deal of time and effort is invested to ensure that each student is settled and able to work effectively.

In Year 12 students study between 3 or 4 Level 3 courses (either BTEC L3 or A Level) or 2 L2 courses.  Students can mix A Level and BTEC courses depending on their future career aspirations.  We also offer students who wish to improve their GCSE Maths and English grades the opportunity to re-sit these qualifications throughout their time in Sixth Form; any student who achieved a grade 3 or below in their GCSE Maths or English must resit this course during Y12. In Year 13, students will traditionally go down to 3 courses, though some have taken 4 where appropriate.
