Studying at The New Sixth

“The sixth forms of St Gregory’s and St Mark’s have come together to create a unique provision for young people in the Bath area: a high quality Sixth Form built on Christian foundations. We want all our students to continue to develop the values, confidence, knowledge and skills they need for adult life, and to grow into caring, well-rounded citizens who will contribute to the common good of society.’’
Ms Ann Cusack, Headmistress

The New Sixth will strive for academic excellence. Great care and attention has been paid to providing a range of qualifications that are highly regarded by universities and potential employers and which will enable you to grow in intellectual and personal maturity.

The majority of students will study four AS Level subjects in the Year 12 and continue with three A2 subjects in the Year 13. We offer 24 A Level courses, from which you can select those which will provide you with the right personal challenges.

There will be a rigorous monitoring and tracking of students’ progress. Teacher assessment and feedback will be shared with students and parents via interim progress reports, formal written reports and parent consultation evenings. In regular formal interviews with your tutor, students will receive both detailed reports on your attainment and advice and guidance for sustained improvement and progress.

Our personalised approach also extends to those who have not yet reached the entry requirements for Level 3 courses and need an additional year to achieve their ambition. This will include concentrated study at GSCE and a range of Level 2 BTECs . This will enable students to progress onto Level 3 courses here or to begin or continue Level 2/3 courses at other schools, colleges or training providers.
