Welcome to Sixth Form
Sixth-form students enjoy school, attend regularly and achieve well. They are very positive about their studies. In the sixth form, they choose from a range of academic and vocational courses. They also have opportunities to resit their GCSE examinations in English and mathematics. The recently introduced International Baccalaureate course is a popular choice. Ofsted 2019
The Lenham School Sixth Form aims to create a purposeful, friendly and adult environment in which students are encouraged to develop a sense of independence and take responsibility for their study.
The Sixth Form years are important in shaping future careers and education and we place importance in students’ academic achievement, increasing self-confidence, and developing a sense of community responsibility. The Sixth Form is fully integrated within the school enabling Sixth Form students to be a positive role model for all younger students.
To improve students’ future employability and economic well-being, applicants who have not achieved a Level 4 in GCSE English and Mathematics will be required to undertake a resit programme or other suitable literacy and numeracy study such as functional skills.
Our Sixth Form students achieve great success moving onto Higher Education and have a 100% success record in applications. We provide various enrichment opportunities, including a structured PSHE programme, Leadership opportunities, careers guidance and an organised mentoring programme.
Above all the Sixth Form is about helping students to realise their potential, whether success at university entrance, or developing wider potential in a chosen career.
