Sixth Form Admission
Welcome to Stretford Grammar School and Sixth Form Centre
Thank you for taking time to find out more about our Sixth Form Centre.
This information has been prepared to help you make two key decisions: is Stretford Grammar School’s Sixth Form the right place for you to study? If so, which courses will suit your needs, talents and ambitions? Please remember that the Prospectus is only part of the process: staff will be pleased to help you make your choices, whether through visits to our Sixth Form, individual interviews, or special events arranged in school for prospective students.
The Sixth Form at Stretford Grammar School has a long-standing reputation for educational excellence, most recently celebrated by our latest Ofsted inspection report (March 2012). In addition, visitors to the Sixth Form frequently comment on the positive atmosphere that exists. Ofsted commented that a crucial factor in the results achieved was the positive relationships between staff and students. The fact that we are a small Sixth Form only serves to facilitate these relationships and, as a result, students very quickly feel part of the whole school community.
We place a very strong emphasis on equality of opportunity for all our students and are committed to helping each individual to fulfil his or her academic potential. That is why at Stretford Grammar School Sixth Form the learning of our students is extremely important to us. It is expressed in the ethos of the Sixth Form, the day to day activities and lessons and the external recognition which we receive through our success in Advanced Level examinations. We therefore aim to provide students with the opportunity to live and work in an atmosphere that is both adult and caring, and to contribute to the organisation of the Sixth Form community and to its many activities.
We aim to provide a broad, challenging and successful experience, which prepares students well for their next vital step, be it Higher Education, training or employment, but is also thoroughly enjoyable in its own right. We have high expectations of our students and this is confirmed through the exam results achieved. Students benefit greatly from the high level of expertise, commitment and enthusiasm which staff bring to their work. However, staff cannot do it all on their own: success at Advanced Level requires students to be self-motivated, and independent; in return we will encourage very high standards.
If you can make that commitment, and if Stretford Grammar School’s Sixth Form appeals to you, we look forward to receiving your application and to making you welcome next September.
The school held its annual information evening for the Sixth Form on Thursday 29th November 2012.
