Gordano Sixth Form

The two years of Sixth Form are probably the most important in your education and will determine the path you take in life. They should be the most enjoyable and fulfilling time of your school career.

We are delighted that so many students, from our own school and beyond, find Gordano Sixth Form the right centre to achieve their best; the right place to be stretched in their thinking and the right place to balance a brilliant social life with a great choice of extra-curricular opportunities.

We are keen to ensure we offer a truly comprehensive Sixth Form; we offer academic and vocational Level 3 courses, so offering an option to most Year 11 students. With such a large combination of subject options, and with many subjects running a number of classes, we are highly likely to be able to offer the right combination to match your interests and strengths.  Our large numbers mean that we are able to offer courses from the traditional to the modern. 

Being a Sixth Former is about much more than just exam results, Sixth Form years are the most important time for developing wider skills to take with you into your adult life. We therefore make it a priority to give you a host of opportunities that will enable you to develop these key ‘life skills’.

As part of your Sixth Form curriculum we expect you to be involved in at least one additional option from our unique and hugely diverse Electives Programme – you could choose anything from Lifeguarding to Peer Mentoring.

  • A large combination of subjects in over 30 courses - both A Level and vocational
  • Careers programme includes essential study skills and input from outside agencies including employers, universities and gap year organisations.
  • Access to Unifrog - a portal for Post-16 careers advice
  • High quality, dynamic teaching from subject experts, supported by access to a wide range of excellent resources to support your learning.
