Entry into Sixth Form marks a transition for every student, and Newcastle-under-Lyme School offers a special opportunity to study in an environment that is school based but Sixth Form focused.
We welcome new entrants at Sixth Form who quickly and naturally assimilate into whole School life. Whether students move from our Year 11, or enter as new Sixth Formers, they are part of a community that has a strong academic tradition and a commitment to co-curricular interests.
The two years of Sixth Form are when important decisions about Higher Education and careers need to be made, and one of our fundamental aims is to help students decide what they want to do after A Levels and then work with them to secure the necessary qualifications and experience needed for their chosen objective.
We believe that the Sixth Form is a place to foster an independent approach to studies and encourage students to take responsibility for their own learning under the guidance of a dedicated pastoral tutor team working with academic staff. The best way to find out about how we achieve these goals is to come and visit us and experience a taster day.
