Welcome to the Sixth Form at The Warren School
The Warren School Sixth Form is in an exciting phase, as we move away from being part of the North East Consortium and into being an independent sixth form, working in close partnership within The Loxford School Trust.
The two years you 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.

Demystifying the Elite Universities
The Warren School 6th Form is always looking for opportunities to expose students to University life and especially to the elite Universities. We are delighted that two of our Year 12 students have recently been offered the opportunity to experience two of the country’s top Universities, St Andrews and the London School of Economics (LSE).
Zaynab has been selected to attend the Sutton Trust’s Summer School at St Andrews from the 2nd to the 9th July. Here, she will take part in a varied programme of academic and social activities designed to give insight into what university study would be like. She will live in a university hall of residence and attend academic sessions in Psychology and Modern Languages. She will also have sessions on the UCAS application process, personal statements and student finance to help her gain the knowledge and insight to make high quality applications to top universities.
Dolly has had a very different but equally exciting visit. She was invited to attend a live debate about the proposal to increase the number of grammar schools by the Teach First programme at the LSE. She soon through herself into the centre of the debate and the panel, including politicians and academics couldn’t believe that she is only 16. She has now put the LSE on her University list.
Well done Girls! – Great ambassadors for The Warren School 6th Form.
