Welcome to Adcote Sixth Form which is an exciting place for young women to continue their post 16 education. The two years which students spend in the Sixth Form are packed full of new experiences and opportunities and, along with the hard work which A Levels bring, there is plenty of time for expanding horizons and gaining valuable life skills including leadership, cooperation and teamwork as well as self-motivation and time management.
For students joining Adcote at 16 and for current pupils, the start of Sixth Form marks a new stage in their education; one of independence, choice and personal development. Our Sixth Form Centre, is based on the Senior School site but provides Sixth Form students with the private space they need to study independently and to socialise.
Adcote’s Sixth Form is much more than a place to gain qualifications. It is a bridge between school and higher education or employment where you will enjoy developing skills, making new friends and taking responsibility as a member of a caring and vibrant community.
Within our website you will find links to our prospectus where you will find summaries of the subjects available at A Level as well as other options available to Sixth Form students. You will also find an outline of our curriculum enrichment programme, approach to study skills and independent learning along with careers and university applications guidance. As well as a varied curriculum you will find that the Sixth Form also has a wealth of co curricular activities and other opportunities on offer, all of which mean that life at Adcote is extremely fulfilling.”
Head of Sixth Form
From spring 2018 Adcote sixth-formers will learn key leadership skills, Year 12 girls will study for a qualification from the Chartered Management Institute – making Adcote the only school in Shropshire to offer the award.
“We are leading the way at Adcote in progressive leadership education for girls of school age. In the current, fiercely competitive workplace environment pupils have to position themselves proactively in order to demonstrate transferable skills and gain an edge over the competition. Having CMI qualifications on their CVs will demonstrate a host of core skills that cannot fail to impress university admissions officers and prospective employers.” Mrs Browne, Headmistress
