Sixth Form

We are extremely proud of the academic and personal achievements of all the students in our Sixth Form.  Not only do the students enjoy impressive examination results that place us as one of the best state schools in the country, but they repeatedly amaze us with their sporting success, musical prowess and other individual achievements.  Sixth Form students are excellent role models for the rest of the school and they actively participate in many aspects of the school life of students in Years 7 to 11.  Our Sixth Form building was opened in September 2009, housing the whole school library; four Sixth Form teaching spaces and a common room area for Year 13 with a roof terrace. Year 12 are based in Sidmouth, one of our original buildings within the school site.

Our Sixth Form is highly oversubscribed.  There are approximately 125 students in each of Years 12 and 13, with around 30-40 external admissions each year.  In Year 12, students study four subjects at AS level and most take at least three subjects onto the full A level in Year 13.  Alongside this we have an exciting academic enrichment programme offering students the opportunity to study AS Critical Thinking (which can be taken to the full A level in year 13);the AQA Extended Project which is opted for at the end of Year 12; or Personal Recreation.

Additional enrichment opportunities for the students include: leadership of and participation in House events; extensive prefect system operating across the whole school in a variety of roles; outreach work with our partners schools and local primary schools; mentoring with peers and younger years; membership of Sixth Form council and School council; Year 12 pantomime enjoyed by the whole school each Christmas; physical education opportunities; subject related trips, visits and conferences; debating team; choirs and music ensembles; charity fundraisers; green group; clubs for younger years; subject specific challenges and competitions; fair-trade stall; and True Adventure expeditions every two years. We fully support students who wish to set up new groups and clubs across the school.

Kendrick 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.
