Sixth Form Welcome

 

Bordesley Green Sixth Form has gone from strength to strength and is now a dynamic community of over 350 students. We pride ourselves on providing a truly inclusive education.  

At the heart of our philosophy is that every student matters. We care about the progress our girls make and are committed to their success. Our teaching and pastoral staff work tirelessly to create an atmosphere where the girls can perform at their best. Our broad curriculum combines academic rigour with numerous opportunities outside of lessons. There are many opportunities to develop leadership, to volunteer and to enhance skills through a varied programme of Enrichment.

Our aim is to prepare our students and equip them for the future into the post 18 world:  into higher education, employment, a gap year or a foundation course; whatever the right choice for them may be. We have formed extensive links with universities, local businesses and voluntary groups in order to offer our students the chance to enrich not only their experiences but also the lives of others. We regularly engage external speakers to further inspire our students and create a real sense of community locally, nationally and internationally. Our Sixth Form students worked tirelessly to get our World Class School status.

We celebrate the achievements of our students and take pride in them. We also take pride in the range of destinations our students leave us to go on to. Last year 70% of our students progressed into higher education to study a range of courses : Medicine, Dentistry, Physiotherapy, Nursing and Primary Teaching to name some.  Whatever is the personal ambition of students, wherever they may see their future being, we can help them to achieve their goals and give them advice and guidance along the way to help make their ambitions a reality.

Our modern Sixth Form Centre offers bright dedicated space for study, in specially designated areas and in tutor bases. Girls can also relax, share ideas and catch up with friends in the Common Room.

I am proud to be the Head of Sixth Form and am committed to value, challenge, nurture and develop the students and making this an outstanding establishment for all to learn and progress within.
As part of our offer, we expect all our students to take 4 AS subjects in year 12 (alongside an enrichment programme), Level 3 BTECH or Level 2 Workskills and 3 subjects in year 13. In some cases, students are able to take additional subjects. We endeavour to personalise the provision where
