About Sixth Form
"An inclusive Sixth Form that provides the opportunity for students of all abilities to realise their potential academically, socially and morally."
Hinchley Wood Sixth Form is a lively, vibrant and respected part of Hinchley Wood School and with over 200 students across two year groups there's never a dull moment.
The Sixth Form is based in a purpose built (opened September 2015), self contained centre within the main school and centre comprises a large common room and kitchen, plentiful private study and seminar rooms, a dedicated IT area equipped with computers and ample desk space as well as several teaching rooms.
There are over 20 A level courses on offer and a student to staff ratio that means one-to-one support is readily available when needed. Students are supported day-to-day by an experienced, enthusiastic team comprising subject and form tutors and heads of learning, as well as a dedicated sixth form co-ordinator and a guidance and pastoral care supporter; all overseen by a Head of Sixth Form.
The guidance supporter is also responsible for, and has extensive knowledge of, UCAS applications. She also works closely with the schools' mentoring and careers advice team to provide guidance for those wishing to explore alternative routes Post 18.
As well as having busy schedules for themselves, both academically and socially, sixth formers contribute in many different ways to the life of the rest of the school; they run fundraising events such as the popular traditional Christmas Panto and rag day; they provide leadership for students in lower year groups, particularly those who are struggling with GCSEs. As if that isn't enough, they are also enthusiastic helpers at big school events like the Christmas fair, summer carnival and musical performances.
The sixth form social calendar is enviable, including Christmas ice skating, West End theatre trips, a biennial trip to New York and an end of year leavers, celebration Boat Party!
Our ethos is simple - work hard and you will achieve!
