Dear Student,

Welcome and thank you for considering Sacred Heart Sixth Form. We are sure that in choosing to study with us you will be making the right choice.


At Sacred Heart we are, rightly, very proud of our tradition of ensuring the best outcomes for all of our students.  Our aim is to help each student, as an individual, to achieve success in their chosen educational career and into their career beyond with Courage and Confidence.

Above all, we hope that at the end of two years at Sacred Heart Sixth Form:

·         Your life opportunities are maximised. 

·         You will become confident, resilient and effective communicators. 

·         You will become a woman ready to lead by example within society. 


You will find life in the Sixth Form different in some ways from life elsewhere in the school: as senior students you will be given more freedom as well as developing a greater sense of responsibility for your own learning. As a Sixth Form student you must learn to use your study periods, and private study time, constructively to maximise your learning potential. You will also have the responsibility, as part of the Sixth Form community, to be a role model for the students in lower school by exemplifying the positive attitude and work ethic to raise the aspirations of the younger students in lower school.

The Sixth Form is a time for specialising in your studies according to your qualifications and career plans. It is also a stepping-stone for you: bridging the gap between school and university and your future chosen path.
