Set your own path
Our forward-thinking sixth form offers you a choice of pathways to help you excel on your terms. Tailor your learning as you discover more about your strengths and passions. It’s our programme’s flexibility and our care and commitment to the individual that will help you unlock your future.
“The teachers are very supportive and regularly check you are organised and on track – to ensure you achieve your best.” Luke, Year 12.
Shape your pathway to suit you
No two students are the same, which is why our sixth form is designed to offer more options than just subject choices.
Choose A-levels, even study an extra one. Opt for up to 60 days of industry experience with one of our partner businesses. Take one of the select BTECs we offer. Whichever academic pathway you pick, we’ll tailor our timetables to give you the best chance of studying what you want.
Whether you plan to go on to university, a Degree Apprenticeship or straight into work, or if you’re unsure, our sixth form will prepare you for your next step.
Even tutor groups are tailored to support your ambitions.
Your tutor will have expertise in what you’re interested in, and your tutor group peers will also share your passion.
Forward-thinking in every sense
Offering a wide range of co-curricular activities, from academic talks and opportunities like Chemistry Olympiad, to musical groups and sports teams, you’ll learn life lessons that can’t be taught in classrooms.
Life Skills – another essential yet unique part of our programme – also helps make the next steps easier. Spanning everything from financial planning to relevant career talks, these sessions prepare you for life after The Grove.
International sports tours. DofE expeditions. Music tours. Science fieldtrips. This is your chance to explore the world.
Your very own space
Our dedicated sixth form centre is a space that’s just for you. Use its roomy common room and workspaces for independent study, group work or downtime. There’s even somewhere to get something to eat – Woody’s Café – and pastoral staff are on hand, if you need any advice or support.
“The sixth form centre is a place where everyone can be together… the café is great too!” Becca, Year 12
Your future starts here
Our flexible sixth form is designed to ensure you excel in the real world. When you finish your studies here, you’ll be prepared emotionally and academically for anything – starting university, your Degree Apprenticeship, work in the real world, anything you want to do in the future.
