Welcome to Northwood Sixth Form
WELCOME FROM SINEAD RAFFERTY, ACTING HEAD OF SIXTH FORM
At Northwood Sixth Form every student is treated as an individual, supported and encouraged to develop and thrive during their time with us. With small class sizes, we can ensure that students get personalised support, attend lessons which are tailored to their needs and receive detailed, regular feedback from their teachers. Our students often praise the quality of lessons as well as the dedication and commitment of their teachers.
Our students also receive fantastic pastoral support from the sixth form team. Every student completes the Northwood Diploma during year 12 which enables them to explore and develop wider interests and experiences beyond their A Level study. We provide extensive individualised support with UCAS and apprenticeship applications, work experience and we encourage and guide our students to take advantage of a range of phenomenal opportunities such as summer schools, university visits and courses and local lectures, to name just a few.
Our sixth form students are leaders and role models in the school. They work closely with younger students, helping out in extra curricular clubs, providing homework support, carrying out prefect duties and even supporting in some lessons.
Each year, I am proud to watch our sixth formers grow in confidence, maturity and in their academic work.
We offer a wide range of courses in the sixth form. Our curriculum is both broad and deep; within each subject of study, students gain a thorough appreciation of that field, ensuring they are fully prepared to embark on further study or training when they leave us.
