‘One of the Top 5 highest rated sixth forms in England.’
Daily Telegraph, 2015
Welcome to our Sixth Form pages. We’re very pleased you found us.
Choosing your Sixth Form is one of the biggest steps on the road to adulthood. In the next two years, you’ll be making huge leaps forward – not just in your studies, but in your life skills as well. You’ll be gaining confidence, making choices and making new friendships that will set the tone of your adult life.
Let us help you.
You may already know where – or what – you want to be in life. Great. We can help you get there. But if you’re still thinking about it, that’s ok too. We’d like to be part of this giant step with you.
At St Mary Magdalene Academy, we’re confident we can bring out the best in you. We’ll treat you like an adult, guide you at every step, help you achieve your best results… and make sure you enjoy your time here too.
And it’s not just talk. We’ll back it up with a three-point promise to you.
Last year’s Sixth Form exam results at St Mary Magdalene were our best ever. With small class sizes, highest quality teaching, and a personal approach, we can bring out the very best in you.
It’s not just about exam results any more. Every employer or university wants to see the real person behind the results: to find out about you.
Through our network of partners in the UK and overseas, we’ll give you the opportunities and space to develop as an individual – and to create a Personal Statement that will impress.
We promise to take you to see at least one university while you’re in Sixth Form. And we’ll guarantee you a work placement within one of our partner companies.
Our Talks programme will fire your enthusiasm and help you decide where you want to go in life. And our careers coaching will set you safely on your way.
Hard work is important, for sure. But it’s important to enjoy your time here too. Our Sixth Form ‘families’ will help you settle in. And with free gym membership, free wi–fi, great friends, and amazing activities and trips to enjoy, you’ll have two years to remember… forever!
Oh… and our students’ words. And our parents’ words. And Ofsted’s words. And The Independent’s words. And the Daily Telegraph’s words. And The Good Schools Guide’s words. Simply email us to arrange a visit.
We’re here waiting for you. Let’s get started!
