Welcome to The Spires College Sixth Form.
Our post-16 provision at The Spires College offers exciting opportunities for young people who aspire to achieve their true potential.
Sixth Form is a springboard; perhaps you have a clear idea of the direction you want to take in life, perhaps you are torn between different ideas and routes, or perhaps you have no idea at all. Regardless, we will support you at every stage by offering a tailored, personalised programme of information, advice and guidance so that you can make informed decisions about your next steps. We will prepare you for entry to Higher Education at Universities and Colleges, as well as for entry to vocational and academic courses in further education, or, indeed, to employment.
In the Sixth Form at The Spires College we are committed to delivering the best learning, support and guidance for our young people during their time here and are proud of the progress that students make. We understand the importance of getting the right students onto the right courses and of offering students high quality, timely support throughout their time with us. We strive to meet the needs of each individual young adult as they prepare for their future in employment, further education or at university. Each of our students is important: we want every one of them to achieve success.
Sixth Form students join a distinctly adult, yet caring, community. On joining the Sixth Form, students enjoy a very different learning experience than they might have had before. Learning and relationships with staff and fellow students are born out of mutual respect, curiosity and a willingness to learn.
Students in our Sixth Form demonstrate initiative, are enthused about their learning, are open to taking risks and show resilience and a determination to succeed. They are stretched and challenged, both in and out of the classroom, and are encouraged to express their views in ways that might be new to them.
The Spires College Sixth Form offers a supportive and challenging ‘bridge’ between school and university or working life. We look forward to welcoming you to the Sixth Form soon.
