Thinking of Joining us in Sept 2017

Shottery Sixth Form – Empowering you for the future

We know about success and we want to help you to be as successful as possible. We want to make sure you leave us with the best possible portfolio of qualifications.

Success is about more than just A-levels - but we know from our connections with leading universities that three A* grades at A-level is always preferable to four subjects with A grades. With the change to linear A-levels it is even more evident that quality not quantity is what universities are looking for.

We also know that universities and employers are looking for a broad range of skills in addition to outstanding academic qualifications and that is why we have devised a unique and varied wrap-around curriculum just for you.
