We pride ourselves on our strong Catholic ethos, and thus have established strong links with our neighbouring Catholic Sixth Form providers, encouraging students to continue their education with an emphasis on a Catholic provision.

St Thomas the Apostle College Sixth Form

The St Thomas the Apostle College Sixth Form presents students with the unique opportunity to further their studies in a first-class learning environment; with dedicated teachers in outstanding facilities; focusing on ‘Achieving Excellence with Care’.

STAC students and staff work together to ensure every student fulfils their potential; through a careful programme of personal development, tailored academic support and a goal of achievement; enabling students to progress to higher education, apprenticeships and successful careers.

Relationships with tutors are based on partnership, support and mutual respect. Small classes allow student support to be tailored, and encourage students to read beyond the curriculum, to work and think independently, and are self-disciplined in their studies - essential skills for university and beyond.

Student outcomes are exceptional at STAC; building upon the foundations we create at St Matthew Academy. We love to hear our successful alumni come back to us and discuss their education at STAC; and look forward to hearing their career pathways upon leaving the sixth form – from the University of Chicago and Kings College London to top apprenticeships in leading global companies, the legacy our students leave us and build upon at STAC is inspiring.

Sacred Heart Sixth Form

The provision offered by the Sacred Heart Sixth Form fosters a love of learning, in Christ and one other, encouraging student to embrace Catholic values through opportunities that will develop a portfolio of experience and skills to support their higher education and career prospects in the future.

Enhanced by a stimulating and challenging curriculum, academic monitoring and support systems and a range of enrichment opportunities; the Sacred Heart Sixth Form celebrates a successful group of alumni; with the majority of students attending Russel Group universities, universities in America and studying a wide range of subjects, ranging from Medicine to Economics.

“I have been given lots of support by the Sixth Form throughout the two years to achieve my potential. I am now really aware of everything that is on offer and I make the most of all opportunities; Sacred Heart has broadened by horizonsEstelle Uba, Sacred Heart Year
