Sixth Form Overview
Abbey Grange Academy Sixth Form is a vibrant, academically focussed Sixth Form that challenges, supports and empowers its students to ‘live life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10).

Our vision is that our sixth form provides an environment which is welcoming, caring, calm, disciplined and purposeful and which will stretch our young people academically, support them pastorally and help them flourish socially and spiritually.

We are committed to providing high quality education for all within an ethos which seeks to work in partnership to educate, nurture and empower through academic, vocational, mental, physical, cultural and spiritual opportunities so that each individual is able to achieve their full potential.

Our educational philosophy and vision is underpinned by our founding values:

  • We believe in the value and potential of every young person.
  • We are committed to high standards of achievement.
  • We cultivate a positive mind set attitude built on the belief all students can make exceptional progress.
  • We will deliver high quality teaching to ensure powerful learning.
  • We will support and prepare students for University or other opportunities relevant to their personal career paths.
  • We will provide rich additional opportunities for all.
  • We will promote an educational community rooted in the Gospel values of humility, service, justice and compassion so we can nurture and empower our pupils to become independent, responsible, dignified, respectful, self-motivated and caring members of society.

All our sixth form students are aged 16-19, and study full time, with a strong focus on progression to Higher Education. The curriculum focus is on Advanced Level with a wide range of A Levels and Vocational Diplomas on offer. You can view our full course list on the Sixth Form website.

Collaboration with Parents and Carers

We value and encourage the involvement of parents in helping us to support students throughout their time at Sixth Form. While we expect students to accept responsibility for their own learning and academic progress, we recognise that a successful partnership with parents is vital to the success of our students and the Sixth Form will liaise with parents accordingly, taking into account the needs of individual students.
