Welcome to Waingels Sixth Form
When OFSTED last visited us in 2013, they said, “The quality of the 6th form is outstanding”.
Since then our students have continued to excel. In 2017, our students achieved results that place us in the top 10% of schools in the country for progress. At A-Level, 81% of grades were at the gold standard of A* - C. Furthermore, the average grade for vocational qualifications is a distinction. We provide young people with a solid academic platform which gives them a great start in life and a launching pad for the future, wherever it may take them. Many choose to go to university to a range of destinations. Last year this included Anglo-Saxon Norse and Celtic at Cambridge, Economics at UCL, Maths at Exeter and Birmingham, Politics Philosophy and Economics at Manchester, Psychology at Warwick, Textile Design at Nottingham Trent and Drama at Royal Holloway. Other students have chosen to take up modern apprenticeships with Microsoft and British Airways.
But life in the Sixth Form is not just about results. The Sixth Form Centre, which inhabits most of the top floor of our Community Zone is a hub of activity and opportunity. During lesson time students can make use of extensive ICT facilities, the Library, and our supervised silent study room. During social times they have full use of the Common Room, the new café and social spaces.
We are fortunate to have a fantastic team of dedicated and highly skilled teachers and Sixth Form tutors, ably led by a Director of Sixth Form Studies, and supported by a full time School Counsellor and Learning Manager. It is the aim of this team to ensure that every student feels supported and challenged on their journey with us, and that they are able to fulfil their potential and thrive.
We are great believers in the maxim “you reap what you sow”. The more you put into Sixth Form life, the more you will get out of it. There is an abundance of opportunity whether it is to develop leadership skills on the school council or through the Duke of Edinburgh; to travel the world with Venture Force, who have, in recent years visited Southern Africa, the Amazon basin and Mongolia; or giving back to the school through Community Service.
We have high expectations and set high standards. We expect students to work independently, to meet deadlines and to go the extra mile. We look forward to welcoming you to our vibrant and friendly Sixth Form Community.
