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.
All Sixth Form students not only prioritise academic achievements but also personal and social development. This development comes in many forms such as being part of the Student Leadership Team, becoming a Prefect, leading House events, organising events for Charity, undertaking work experience or participating in school productions or sports teams.
All Sixth Form students complete a weekly enrichment opportunity across their two years and complete at least an hour a week of volunteering; either in school, during extra-curricular activities, or in the local community.
Blenheim 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 newly rebranded and dedicated café and study area and where appropriate, make use of iPad technology to support their learning.
The Sixth Form received a strong Ofsted inspection report in May 2019 with several areas being identified as strengths. They included the curriculum, the extended day, student support and the personalised guidance that is offered to each student. We were also delighted that a significant proportion of all university applications continue to result in Blenheim students gaining places at Russell Group universities including Oxbridge. These institutions are internationally recognised as providing the very best that Higher Education has to offer.
Blenheim leavers are embarking on an increasingly diverse range of pathways, including apprenticeships, employment and higher education. We are also delighted that Ofsted commented that, ‘’The Sixth Form meets learners’ needs well. Good quality provision ensures that these learners achieve good outcomes and are effectively equipped for the next stage of education or for employment.”
Students who make the decision to join Blenheim Sixth Form can expect to leave us as well qualified independent learners, active members of the community and confident in the pursuit of their chosen goals.
We look forward to welcoming you.
Mr C. Duffy, Head of Sixth Form
