At King Edward VII Academy Sixth Form we understand how to get the best from our students and have a rich history of doing so. We know that students want a balance of support and freedom, where they are guided to find their own path and ideas.

We have an excellent record of supporting our students to become successful and achieve excellent examination results. This combined with the excellent pastoral support students receive has meant that many of our students go on to university success.

We offer much more than just a great opportunity to study and gain A-levels however. We offer a fantastic variety of extra-curricular opportunities. Students can take part in Leadership courses, Sports Teams, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, the EPQ qualification, Charitable Organisations, our House System and the opportunity to go on overseas trips to America and China.

Sixth form students are required to be independent learners but we also recognise that building strong partnerships with parents is an essential feature of our work. We, therefore, seek to ensure that parents are fully involved in the learning process.

'Sixth Form students receive good guidance and mentoring from staff.  They are well supported in planning what to do in the future with a large proportion going on to education, employment or training.  Students have plenty of meaningful opportunities to develop leadership skills. such as by working with younger pupils in the school.’
