Bloxham School Sixth Form (16+)
Sixth Form at Bloxham School is all about choice: choice of subjects, choice of learning environment, choice of activities and choice about your future.
Currently most Bloxham students choose an initial four A Level subjects to study and will aim to complete three at the end of the two years. This allows them to choose subjects about which they're passionate, leading to an interesting and stimulating learning environment where Sixth Formers are increasingly challenged to reach their potential and beyond. However, there is also the flexibility to reduce to three subjects once students have greater knowledge of studying each in depth. In this situation most students will then choose to opt to complete an additional Extended Project Qualification in an area of interest.
Our small class sizes (typically six to twelve students) lead to more student-led learning and a focus on the individual, with teachers and peers providing support, help and guidance. Our bespoke General Studies programme is delivered through a series of university-style lectures, with fortnightly guest speakers discussing topics such as pastoral care, academia, motivation and aspiration, and charitable and vocational work. These seminars are designed to create a sense of independence amongst students, as well as developing the skills necessary for the world of work. This programme is complemented by a flourishing Careers Department, which assists with UCAS applications, offers careers advice and helps to develop leadership skills amongst the students.
The pastoral care each Sixth Former receives is outstanding and is vital in ensuring each Upper Sixth leaver is ready to move on to the next exciting stage of their lives. There are over 70 activities available to Sixth Form students, ranging from music to sport, and art to clay pigeon shooting. Our Sixth Formers are expected to lead and coach in each activity, as well as learn new skills themselves.
For a slightly more in depth look at what our Sixth Form can offer students why not take a look at our Sixth Form prospectus? And if that inspires you to want to find out more first-hand, why not attend our upcoming Open event or organise a personal visit? For further details, please click here.
