Sixth Form

A Level Results Day, August 15th 2019

Students should come into school any time from 9am on Thursday 15th August in the Commons to receive their results though we advise that students should log onto UCAS first thing in the morning before coming into school to determine the status of their university application.

UCAS typically updates at 6am, though often the system is overwhelmed by the sheer volume of people trying to log on at once, and often crashes, so please bear that in mind that you may need to try several times before successfully logging in.

Members of the sixth form team will be available on the M floor to support students who wish to go through the clearing or adjustment process or to offer any advice. Clearing has now opened for students who have no current offers or who would like to explore new courses thathave places available. The list of available clearing places can be found here: https://www.whatuni.com/university-clearing/

If students narrowly miss out on either their firm or insurance offer, they may wish to ask for papers to be remarked so they do not lose out on a university place. This should only be done in cases where students are close to a grade boundary and when teaching staff are in support of this. This referred to as ‘priority review of marking’. Requests for this must take place by 4pm on 16th August to ensure universities have a chance to reconsider applications. Please

Note that re-marks are chargeable to you at a variable rate starting from £61.20 per paper. In addition, students will need to be on-site to sign a form stating they wish to have theirpapers re-marked. This cannot be done by a parent or carer.

More information about the remarking process can be found here: https://www.cife.org.uk/article/getting-remark-a-or-gcse-exam/

Our Vision

Our Sixth Form combines the highest of expectations with increased independence, responsibility and endless opportunities for our students. 

Sixth Formers are leaders within the wider Bolingbroke family. They access a rich, rewarding and tailored set of experiences that raise aspirations and offer up fresh opportunities in a uniquely small, personalised environment. We pride ourselves on knowing, nurturing and developing every student.

The Sixth Form is based on powerful learning relationships between students and a team of exceptionally committed teachers, willing to do whatever it takes to achieve our mission of preparing students for optimum success at A-Level and beyond. 

We offer a bespoke, challenging and engaging curriculum with a range of academic courses alongside a varied skills-focused programme for all learners.

We ensure that every student here realises their potential, achieves outstanding outcomes and acquires wider skills and experiences that will prepare them to venture into the world beyond Bolingbroke with curiosity, compassion and courage.
