Sixth Form: Welcome

With over 300 students, Poole High Sixth Form is becoming the post 16 education centre of choice in our area. Our students join us from neighbouring schools, as well as from within our own Year 11, creating a diverse and exciting cohort of individuals, working towards the same goal. Our ethos of high expectations and enabling the rapid progress of all, is embedded in all we do at Poole High Sixth Form.

At Poole High Sixth Form students are offered a wide range of academic and vocational subjects to study. Students will progress from their GCSEs to A-Level, BTEC or National Certificates, all at Level 3. For those who did not achieve at least five new ‘4’ grades at GCSE, including a ‘4’ in both English and maths, we offer a Level 2 pathway, to support students in consolidating this level of learning. This will enable them to then progress to Level 3 study with us in the future.

By personalising the careers information, education, advice and guidance for each student, we enable all our students to reach their chosen future pathway. We make sure that all our students are enrolled on challenging, yet achievable courses. Our student community will also experience on-going support and guidance to help them plan their progression to Higher Education, Further Education, apprenticeship or employment.

Students also have access to fantastic and wide-ranging facilities, of which our own Sixth Form building is one. Our students have privileged access to their own study area within the Sixth Form building or main Library, where they can dedicate themselves to their learning and progression.

Our dedicated, dynamic and innovative teaching and pastoral staff provide challenge and support for all students. Students also receive specialist support with their next steps through our Pathways Co-ordinator and CIEAG experts in school. This ensures that we are able to support students in making the next crucial decisions and enable them to make sound choices, based on reliable advice.
