At Tupton Hall School we offer a lively and very successful Sixth Form for students from a wide variety of different schools. We care about students’ academic and personal development. We are committed to providing a friendly and supportive Sixth Form for all our students, in order that everyone may achieve their potential.
The pass rate at Advanced Level has remained over 98% since 2008. In 2018 our students achieved a 99.46 per cent pass rate, with 78 per cent of grades being A* - Cs. On average more than 70% of the cohort opt to continue into Higher Education after completing their A Levels.
We are a large Sixth Form and as a result of which we are able to offer a wide range of A Level subjects to our students; these include Art, Biology, English Language and Literature, Health and Social Care, Law, Psychology, all three sciences, Media and the full range of humanities subjects. Students will select to study between three and five subjects at A Level and specialise in these subjects for a two year programme of study.
We offer an extensive extra-curricular programme, which includes Duke of Edinburgh Award, Sports Leaderships Award, Community Volunteering and work experience. We are dedicated to ensuring that all students are given the support, advice and opportunities to get them to the next step in their career, whether that is university, an apprenticeship or employment.
Pastorally the Sixth Form is organised into fifteen form groups, which are comprised of Year 12, 13 and 14 students. Each group is assigned a form tutor who remains with them for their time in the Sixth Form.
Our links with local universities mean that students get the opportunity to attend subject-based tutorials, university experience days and summer schools. Students are encouraged to get involved in Drama, Art, Music, Sport, Enterprise or any activity they feel will be of benefit.
The Sixth Form is a community, one where students are encouraged to achieve, enjoy their learning and gain valuable experiences.
