Here at Hornsea Sixth Form students are proud of their school community and strive to fulfil their promise and potential.
Staff work together across our sixth form family to provide the best academic and pastoral support we can, so our young people can be the best they can.
Results have been great, with 59% of all A level grades A*-B and a pass rate of 100% in 2022. Amongst our many points to celebrate last year, we had a Year 13 successfully obtaining the grades to attend Oxford University, and another confirmed for Medical School. They are both part of the huge 70% of our young people who secured a University place from our 2022 cohort. Many others secured destinations on apprenticeships, employment or other education pathways. Most importantly, our young people are confident, caring and well-rounded individuals who we are very proud to be associated with.
Our broad curriculum offers 30+ A Level courses or other equivalent Level 3 programmes. We also offer students the opportunity to take their studies beyond the classroom, through participating in extra-curricular and enrichment activities to create independent and creative learners. Most importantly, the curriculum enables students to lead happy, fulfilled lives and to develop their passion for learning.
Director of Hornsea Sixth Form
Our average class size of 8 students undoubtably aids the effectiveness of the high quality teaching, which happens every day.
Last year, 59% of all A Level results were grades A*-B and we had a pass rate of 100%.
Our Pathways programme allows students to tailor their learning, building their skills and Sixth Form experiences around a specific career goal, in their desired industry. You can read more about our Pathways here.
We are not an exam factory; exam grades alone seldom facilitate future prosperity, curiosity or well-being. The curriculum fosters the development of students’ personal growth and resilience,
Students benefit from numerous facilities, including: A quiet study area; a buzzing common room (complete with a pool table!); a state of the art 3G pitch and a delicious cafe. All conveniently located at our purpose-built Sixth Form centre.
At Hornsea Sixth Form, you will have the opportunity to go on a range of trips. We’ve had departments take our students all over the world! From Cambodia, to New York, to the busy streets of London.
Spend time in the Sixth Form's dedicated social area during your free lessons, grab a bite to eat at the on-site cafe and maybe even have a game of pool with friends!
We’ve had some excellent students over the years who have gone on to have great success in their chosen careers. One day this could be you!
