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.
