Thank you for your interest in Alexandra Park Sixth Form.
Our sixth form is thriving; we have more than 600 students studying A Level and BTEC courses. Since opening in 2004 we have worked tirelessly to develop our provision to ensure the best possible outcomes for all students. Ofsted confirmed that 2the effectiveness of the Sixth Form is outstanding”. This judgement was based on the “outstanding teaching” that students receive, the “exemplary care”, guidance and support that is provided to them and the “outstanding progress” that they make, both in terms of examination results and in moving to Higher Education, training or employment.
Last year’s results were outstanding; more students than ever earned A*-C grades and more than 40% went to Russell Group universities. More than 80% of our students were accepted to their first-choice university and more than 80% are going to university ranked in the top 30%. A national comparison and independent analysis concludes that in terms of value we add to students our results place us in the top 5% of Sixth Forms in England and Wales.
We are immensely proud of our students’ university success. They are reading a range of subjects including Architecture, Biology, Chemistry, Classics Dentistry, Economics, Engineering, English Literature, History, Law, Medicine, Physics and PPE at institutions across the country. Ofsted recognised the success of our Sixth Form in ensuring students have ‘high aspirations’. This is shown, in part by the success of our students applying to Oxbridge.
Alexandra Park Sixth Form provides students with an exciting opportunity to continue their education in a calm and caring environment which has a culture of learning at its heart. We view each student as an individual and will do all we can to help the realise their full potential.
We acknowledge past success does not always correlate with future success. That is why we are a forward thinking and innovative sixth form. The reasons why our students continue to be successful is because they are nurtured to have a mindset that is in control, balanced, grounded and happy despite the challenges of study. We also appreciate academic success is not just about intelligence. We develop how our students work and support them to create the routines, strategies and habits for themselves to be successful. I look forward to reading your application.
