Welcome to The Warren Sixth Form
The Warren School Sixth Form is in an exciting phase. We are now an independent sixth form, working in close partnership with The Loxford Sixth Form as part of the Loxford Trust.
The two years that you will spend in the Sixth Form will give you the knowledge, skills and experience to move you closer to your dream. Our aim is to give you the challenge and support to make this happen. A comprehensive induction programme is provided so that students quickly settle into our sixth form. There are high expectations of all in Year 12 to do your best and achieve.
A Place of Learning for All
We pride ourselves on being a place of learning for all – if you want to join us then we will do our best to put together a combination of course subjects that will work for you and your future plans. All we ask in return is that you demonstrate commitment to your education by attending on time completing work set and valuing your place within our school. You will also contribute to the community as an active citizen learning skills to help in a crisis and taking part in charity events in and around The Warren School.
We are committed to high quality education. We aim to create a culture in which students want to succeed and high achievement and excellence are positively viewed. Aim high and we will be here to help you.
This year all of our students who wanted to go to University got, primarily, their first choice places, others got into good Universities through clearing. We also placed more students than ever into the prestigious Russell Group.
There were also some outstanding vocational results with our students achieving an average grade of Distinction allowing them to continue their studies at top Universities, such as Loughborough and Nottingham and in key apprenticeships.
Some of our individual subjects achieved places in the top 1% of national grades.
To supplement our extensive taught curriculum, we offer our students an exciting extra-curriculum, careers and enrichment programme. Students also act as subject ambassadors, volunteering for one hour per week out of their private study to work in subject areas of their choice. This is a great opportunity for students to contribute to the wider school life and also to develop essential transferable skills. Students choose from the following “core” options;
- Sports Leaders
- Literacy Leaders
- The Duke of Edinburgh awards scheme
- Subject Ambassadors
Cultural Enrichment Trips include New York and Disney Land Paris
We have students that are aspiring to attend Oxford University and we have ensured that they are fully prepared to take on this challenge, with one to one support and interview techniques put in place to support them.
In addition, students also follow a comprehensive PSCHE programme where they will be given age appropriate guidance on personal, social and health related matters and will also be given the opportunity to reflect on contemporary issues. During this time they will also focus on their future pathways, receiving high quality independent advice about the UCAS process and Apprenticeships. They receive specific sessions on personal statement writing, each student is assigned a subject specialist personal mentor and sessions on writing effective CV’s and interview skills.
We regularly monitor the academic progress of our students. Parents and teachers work closely together to ensure that you will achieve your full potential. We regard our Sixth Formers as role models for younger members of the school and are keen for you to be involved in the wider aspects of school life. You may be chosen to be a sixth form prefect or sit on a student panel when we are recruiting new teachers. Sixth Form students contribute significantly to many voluntary activities, including music, sport and drama.
We are certain that The Warren Sixth Form provides an exciting environment in which you can flourish.
If you have any queries about post sixteen opportunities at the school then please do not hesitate to contact us.
