Sixth Form Admissions

To apply to Waingels Sixth Form please see bottom of this page.

At Waingels we provide young people with a strong academic platform which gives them a great start in life and a launching pad for the future, including a broad range of subjects. Students receive support and guidance by subject specialists in order to achieve their potential and progress into top quality apprenticeships and university courses.

But life in the Sixth Form is not just about results. The Sixth Form Centre is a hub of activity and opportunity. We encourage students to follow on-line courses that allow them to pursue an interest without the pressure of exams, to join in with our enrichment programme and to play sport on Wednesday afternoons.

You will find that we have fantastic facilities for our Sixth Form students including extensive ICT facilities in our Sixth Form study library, a student  common room, a coffee shop and a social space for Sixth Form students,  where they can meet and socialise.

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 a Head of Year 12 and Year 13, and supported by a full time School Counsellor and KS5 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.

Here at Waingels 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 and you will not be short of opportunities!  

There are a variety of pathways that students can choose from to best suit their interests and style of learning.

We are excited to be offering opportunities to a diverse range of learners from those aspiring to Oxbridge and other universities to those turning their hand to apprenticeships. A Level qualifications have changed in recent years, with AS Level becoming a standalone qualification. At Waingels, in line with most other educational institutions, we have moved towards a two-year programme of study. It will be expected that students will carry all subjects through to Year 13. Students can design their own course from their chosen subjects, combining BTEC Level 3 and A Level options, which offer a varied approach to learning.

Our Level 3 pathways include:

•Three A Levels.

•Two A Levels and a Level 3 BTEC.

•Three Level 3 BTECs

These are all two year courses with assessments at the end of the two-year period.

NB: All BTEC Level 3 courses contain an element of examination.

 

Waingels Key Stage 5 Options Evening

The Options Evening will consist of a talk from the Head Teacher and members of the Sixth Form team in the hall at 6pm, tours of the Sixth Form facilities and an opportunity to speak to subject teachers and students from all subjects offered. For prospective students who do not currently attend Waingels we would like to offer an additional opportunity to have a tour of the school which can be arranged by appointment by contacting Sixth Form Admissions on SixthFormAdmissions@waingels.wokingham.sch.uk
