Oriel Sixth Form is an exciting, supportive and innovative place to spend your post-16 studies. We work with our students to build upon the foundations from years 7-11 at Oriel High School or elsewhere, increasing the expectation of students to work independently whilst using your relationships with expert teachers and tutors to enhance your progression. It also allows you, as one of the most senior members of the school, to take on responsibilities as a role model and leader for our younger students. The focus is squarely on academic success but we will also encourage you to develop your life skills; aspirations and employability. You will leave the Sixth Form as an independent learner and thinker and a responsible young adult.
A serious working environment with excellent study facilities including: Seminar rooms and 6th form lab space; Study Room with ICT resources and silent study space, and access to the Library during the working day.
There are also a well-equipped Common Room and Sixth Form Café which provide space for both work and socialising. Facilities include Pool table, Music, Drink and Snack making facilities, and the café which is staffed and provides a good choice of hot and cold meals.
Take a closer look at our prospectus and Sixth Form guide to find out more about how your future goals can be realised at Oriel Sixth Form.
