Intellectual challenge and personal growth will mark the two years in the Sixth Form. These two years will also be a time of unrivalled enjoyment among good friends, enthusiastic teachers and beautiful surroundings.
Sixth Formers will have access to excellent facilities and expertise in every area of their academic work; in the university and careers advice, in sport, art, music and drama. The new library complex offers a perfect opportunity for independent learning in preparation for the university years that lie ahead for almost all Bloxham 6th Form students.
They will also be part of a friendly community where people are accepted for who they are. Both the school and the other pupils readily recognise the different contributions each member of the Sixth Form makes.
What will you learn?
You will be able to take a wide range of subjects which include: Art, Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, Design and Technology, Theatre Studies, Economics, English Literature, French, Geography, German, Government and Politics, History, ICT, Latin, Mathematics, Music, PE, Physics, Psychology, Religious Studies and Spanish. We offer Business Studies in both the traditional form of AS and A2 and also in a new syllabus for ACVE. Both courses are welcomed by universities.
Sixth Formers will be asked to choose four AS subjects from which they choose three A2 levels, unless they have particular reasons for maintaining four to A2 level. Classes are rarely larger than 12, and often much smaller, and the atmosphere is open, friendly and conducive to good discussion and the development of interesting ideas.
A love of learning
Sixth Formers should find work an stimulating experience, and we want to foster a real love of learning that will provide a long-term source of interest for them throughout the years ahead.. A wireless network covers the whole campus which delivers modern technology capability to all.
Independence and Responsibility
In the Sixth Form, social life will change too. Sixth Formers are given an increasing measure of independence and, if they want it, considerable responsibility. They will be able to take on leadership roles by being a prefect, in Chapel, through the CCF, through community service, or by helping in a primary school. They might wish to play a part in one of the Young Enterprise Companies or, indeed, establish a new activity or society. They will be supported in whatever they choose to do.
Sixth Formers will be expected to follow a dress code devised to give senior pupils some individuality.
The Sixth Form manages its own social centre and the Junior Common Room which provide an excellent environment in which to socialise after work in the evenings.
