It is a privilege being Head of Sixth Form at a school as committed and inclusive as St Joseph’s Catholic High School. Moving from GCSE’s to A-Levels is a significant step in your child’s journey and here at St Joseph’s we ensure the transition is smooth and fruitful.
We are extremely proud of the academic and personal achievements of all our sixth form students, no less down to the thorough work ethic of our students as well as the full commitment showcased by our staff.
There are approximately 150 students in Year 12 &13 collectively. In Year 12, students study four subjects at AS-Level and take three of those subjects at A-Level in Year 13. All pupils are equipped with an IPAD as well as having priority access to the Learning Resource Centre at all times of the school day.
Additional enrichment opportunities are also included within our curriculum which include; the Edexcel Extended Project, lower school mentoring, STEM masterclasses, critical thinking classes as well as visits and workshops on applying to University and Apprenticeships. Selected Year 13 students also have the opportunity of taking part in “Mission to Thailand” a two week volunteering placement at an orphanage in Thailand. A great degree of thought and care is put in ensuring that your child follows a personalised and competitive curriculum.
St Joseph’s Sixth Form is for students who wish to be challenged academically and are also willing to play an active role in the life of the school.
We look forward to receiving your application.
