Welcome to Walbottle Academy Sixth Form.
We believe that the best option for many of our Year 11 students is to remain at Walbottle Academy for Sixth Form. Unlike college, by the time a student reaches our Sixth Form, we have often spent 5 years getting to know students. We know their strengths, how they learn best and where they need to develop skills. We use all of our prior knowledge of each student built up throughout their time at Walbottle Academy to deliver distinctive programmes, pushing students to be the best that they can be. Our personalised approach means that students are well supported in their academic progress, pastoral care and careers guidance.
We welcome applications from students attending other schools. We encourage these students to contact us to arrange to meet with a member of our Sixth Form team and take a tour of our facilities.
Many of our Sixth Form graduates secure places at a range of top universities, such as Warwick, Glasgow, Newcastle and Sheffield, to study courses ranging from Medicine to English Literature, and Physiotherapy to 3D Design. Other students secure fantastic apprenticeships or gain the qualifications needed to directly enter the world of work.
