About The New Sixth

A sixth form education for the whole person: academically, personally, spiritually

The New Sixth is a unique sixth form built in partnership with the Diocese of Clifton and the Diocese of Bath and Wells, opened in 2013. Our sixth form is open to all and welcomes students who wish to learn and grow in an inclusive and supportive environment, founded on Christian values.

Our outstanding sixth form campus provides students with their own purpose-built Learning Resources Centre, state of the art science laboratories and café. This bespoke facility bridges the gap between school, university and the world of work, allowing our sixth formers the autonomy and space to grow in a supportive, high-achieving environment.


Our guiding principles

  • To ensure all students feel secure and equally valued in a caring Christian environment that holds the student at the centre of everything we do
  • To offer an academically challenging curriculum that will develop all our students so that they are capable of fulfilling their potential
  • To provide a stimulating curriculum that extends beyond the classroom, providing sporting, cultural, charitable and adventurous opportunities that all our students will enjoy
  • Create opportunities for students to learn to work collaboratively, become leaders, develop personally and grow spiritually
  • To provide bespoke careers advice and mentoring that will support all students in their future choices.
