Why Cleeve Sixth Form?

Welcome to Post Sixteen at Cleeve Park School

Cleeve Park Sixth Form has the highest expectations of its students, encouraging all to aspire to be the best that they can be and to set goals with ambition and a determination to succeed. Academic excellence is our goal for all, whether following a traditional A Level pathway to university or a bespoke mixture of vocational and academic qualifications that allow access to high level apprenticeships or the workplace.

Aspirations to higher education are expertly supported to become impressively fully-rounded applications to the universities and colleges of their choice. Developing links with local grammar schools will enhance the existing annual applications to Oxbridge and Russell Group Universities.

Students have access to a private study suite equipped with 60 computers which is staffed by an experienced Study Supervisor. We have also introduced silent study rooms, timetabled for every period, to provide an environment for extended writing and literary learning for those students whose needs require a smaller environment. The students also have their own canteen which provides wholesome food and a more relaxed environment at break and lunch. Although our focus is clearly on academic excellence for all, the holistic development of the students that we serve is essential and valued. Students are encouraged to express themselves, celebrate diversity and widen their interests. Therefore, they also benefit from a wide range of extra-curricular activities including sporting activities, trips and visits. In recent years there have been trips to Amsterdam and Geneva.

Our students are supported and inspired to achieve by passionate and committed teaching and non-teaching adults. We ensure the monitoring and tracking of our students is frequent, rigorous and effective. Specific targets for improvement are set and explained thoroughly so that they are fully understood by our students. We continually strive to raise standards and expectations in order that our students have every opportunity to achieve and exceed their potential. The excellent support and guidance throughout Years 12 and 13 provide each member of our sixth form with the expert advice and guidance required to assist with the next step in their lives, be it university, apprenticeship or employment.

The majority of students that join us in Year 7 stay on to our sixth form but we warmly welcome students from other schools who are provided with a welcoming and highly effective transition into our Sixth Form. Our excellent pastoral care system ensures our  students are happy, nurtured, valued and challenged to aspire to be the best that they can be. The Sixth Form contributions to the school, including the Year 7 mentor scheme, support with the lower school reading scheme and numerous fund raising activities all add to our school community.

Our sixth formers are the beating heart of our school. We look forward to welcoming you so that you experience our offer for yourself and immerse yourself in our unique and vibrant community of learners who, with expert teaching and support, strive to be the very best that they can be.
