Welcome

We are delighted that you are considering Blenheim for the next stage of your education. Choosing where to study after Year 11 is one of the most important decisions you will make; it will influence the path you travel in the future and allow you to develop lifelong skills and talents.

Selecting the right course of study is vital and our dedicated staff are here to offer support and guidance to help you make those choices. Along with your subject selection, all Blenheim Sixth Form students also complete the Blenheim Graduation Certificate – an opportunity to contribute to the wider life of the school and the local community. Whether it be by organising events for charity, assisting lower school students with their literacy, undertaking a work experience placement or participating in school productions and sports teams, we firmly believe that learning extends beyond the classroom.

Our Sixth Form offers you the opportunity to join an exciting and vibrant community where facilities are modern and the culture of opportunity and responsibility thrives. All students benefit from a dedicated café and study area, and are able to make use of iPad technology to support their learning. We were very pleased with our exam results in 2017, with 50% of our students gaining an A*-B at A level, and 81% an A*-C. Our A level results were rated as being in the top 25% of schools in the country in terms of value added by ALPS. We were also delighted that 61 students were successful in applying to university, with 20 of these gaining places at Russell Group universities

Our leavers are embarking on a diverse range of pathways, including apprenticeships, employment and higher education – a number of students achieved places at Russell Group universities this year. We were also delighted that OFSTED commented that, ‘students are supported very well to make good progress and achieve well.’

Students who make the decision to join Blenheim Sixth Form can expect to leave us as independent learners, active members of the community and confident in the pursuit of their chosen goals.

We look forward to welcoming you!

James Preece
Head of Sixth Form
