IntroWe are very proud of the post-16 opportunities we offer our young people.
Our sixth form, although based at The Castle Rock School, is very much a shared sixth form for both The Castle Rock School and The Newbridge School. We also welcome students into our post-16 provision from other schools.
As students enter this final stage of secondary education, it is vital that considered choices are made to enable progression to university, college, training and the world of work.
Level three study, whether that be Advanced Levels (A Levels), vocational qualifications or a combination of both, are life changing. They are a passport to future choices that unlock routes to higher education or advanced apprenticeships. These qualifications are not only valued by British employers but are looked upon internationally as gold-standard qualifications.
Your combination of level three courses needs to be considered carefully. Whichever combination you choose, each subject we offer will be fascinating, challenging and help you become a deeper, broader and more critical thinker.
Life as a sixth form student also develops independent study skills, crucial employability skills, a sense of identity and the friendships you make will most likely last a lifetime.
