Sixth Form

“Leadership of the sixth form is good. Students can choose from a range of qualifications that meet their individual interests and abilities” - Ofsted 2015

 

Your future starts here.

At Villiers Sixth Form, we value and celebrate our achievements together. We are a community of aspiration, aiming to achieve academic excellence through outstanding teaching and learning, underpinned by a relentless focus on achieving the best.

The Sixth Form at Villiers High School is a community of learners built around shared values. We believe that each member of that community should be respected and appreciated for the contribution they make to the whole. Students are supported by their teachers and tutors to reach their potential.

At Villiers we uphold the right of every student to learn, form relationships, develop skills and become a productive and involved member of society. We are strongly committed to equality and inclusion, and encourage students to engage with each other, regardless of ethnicity, gender, sexuality or disability.

The Villiers Sixth Form offers a rich and varied curriculum which reflects the needs of our learners as well as our ambition for their futures. The curriculum is built around a core of respected academic A-Levels and BTEC qualifications, supplemented by a diverse and engaging enrichment programme.

The Villiers Sixth Form has high aspirations for all its students. Years 12 and 13 are stepping-stones to further and higher education, and form the foundation for lifelong learning. We are rightly proud of the high proportion of students who are successful in gaining admission to Russell Group Universities, and we aspire to 100% success rates for overall University admissions.

Further Advice

At Villiers we have an enthusiastic careers department who want to help you make the right choices for your future. Together with your teachers they will aim to help students focus upon the choice of directions available after leaving school and the appropriate career aspirations.

How can I acquire information about the world of work?

Should I take a Gap Year?

What sponsorships and grants are available?

Frequently asked questions

Will I wear a uniform if I come to Villiers Sixth Form?

No, there is no uniform in the V6. However, we do expect students to “dress to learn” – a common-sense approach to what kind of clothing is appropriate to a classroom environment. When in lessons the usual behavioural expectations apply.

Can I study medicine if I come to Villiers Sixth Form?

You can apply to medical school so long as you’ve studied Chemistry and another science such as Physics or Biology. However, academic grades alone won’t be enough – you’ll have to build up a strong application with extra-curricular work showing your commitment and enthusiasm.

 

Do you run trips abroad for Sixth Formers?

Sixth Form students are encouraged to get involved in trips both in the UK and overseas. Each year there are different opportunities arranged by the school, and students are free to propose their own trips.
