WELCOME TO OUR SIXTH FORM
Welcome to Skinners’ Academy Sixth form. We are an inclusive community providing a positive, rich and stimulating learning environment for all of its students. We have a large body of highly skilled and motivated staff who understand well how students learn best, and who provide the right balance of pastoral support and academic challenge to ensure success for all.
We are intentional about our curriculum offer; we give students the authentic experiences to help them to develop into passionate mathematicians, nurses, teachers, business entrepreneurs and everything else in between.
Our purpose built Sixth Form area is equipped with its own common room and IT suite. Students, in our Sixth Form have increased leadership responsibilities as we help prepare them for the world of work or higher education.
We strive to ensure that all who come into our care, are equipped with the skills and knowledge to contribute successfully in society. We want our young people to be the best they can, so we prepare them to be confident, independent and productive world citizen
Ms James, Principal
Head of Sixth Form Message
At Skinners’ Academy we aim to provide a positive and inspiring environment in which you will be able to thrive. I look forward to welcoming you into our sixth form community. Here We will help you balance your desire to be an independent adult learner with structured support and guidance from experienced subject teachers and a dedicated sixth form pastoral team.
The supportive but disciplined environment will enable you to focus on what is most important – high academic achievement and embracing super curricular opportunities. When I ask students why they want to return to the sixth form, it is always for the structure and the support offered in our friendly and caring environment.
We are a community who support each other and celebrate the successes and achievements of all our members.
Our broad curriculum and the ability to offer a mix of A Level and applied general qualifications means you can study a mix of courses which really meet your future study and career goals.
Although sixth form is a short journey, it is an incredibly important one. When you leave us at the end of Year 13, you’ll be equipped with the qualifications, skills and characteristics needed to excel in university or on a school leavers apprenticeship programme. I look forward to working with you throughout this journey.
Ms Potter, Head of Sixth Form
