The Sixth Form at Tytherington School is a key part of our large and highly successful school. Combining the independence and flexibility of a college with the guidance and encouragement of a school, we provide Sixth Form study in a supportive and challenging environment.
At Tytherington we are committed to high quality teaching and learning. With an expanding range of courses from which to choose, we offer a curriculum that suits a wide range of interests and aspirations. Students are guided by a highly experienced team of Sixth Form tutors, led skilfully by the Director and the Assistant Director of Sixth Form, who carefully monitor and support academic progress and the transition onto Higher Education and employment. We have an excellent record of helping our students to gain places at the country’s leading universities, including a very successful Oxbridge Preparation Programme, and encourage and facilitate those who wish to gain experience in the world of work.
Whilst our students begin to develop the self-reliance and confidence that are required in Higher Education and employment, parents and carers are kept abreast of their progress through regular monitoring reports and Parents’ Meetings, which are held twice a year. Students are encouraged to make effective use of their non-contact time and have exclusive access to the Sixth Form Centre which was fully refurbished in 2012 as part of a £3m investment.
Alongside their academic studies, students are encouraged to take part in a wide range of opportunities offered through our enrichment programme. Many students are actively involved in our highly successful Duke of Edinburgh and Young Enterprise schemes; continue to develop their talents in music, drama and sport; and support both the school and wider community through their volunteer work.
We offer our students further education in a structured environment where they can attain the qualifications and the independence of mind to pursue successful and fulfilling careers.
