Sixth Form Life

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 an observatory providing additional study space. Year 12 are based in Sidmouth, one of our original buildings within the school site.

There are approximately 140 students in each of Years 12 and 13, with around 40-50 external admissions each year.  Students study three or four A level subjects and opportunities for AS qualifications and the EPQ are also offered. A comprehensive wellbeing and enrichment programme complements the taught academic curriculum.  

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; 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; clubs for younger years; subject specific challenges and competitions; fair-trade stall; LGBT and Amnesty. 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.
