The Sixth Form

Deadline for Applications for 2017-19 study: Friday 9th December

We provide a unique academic and pastoral experience for the many students who apply to study ‘A Level’ courses at St Joan’s. Students are based in a separate, well-equipped study centre within the school grounds. The students continue to receive the same high quality teaching and pastoral support we pride ourselves on lower down the school.

Sixth Form students are expected to take on wider responsibilities, contributing to the Catholic ethos of the school.

The achievement of our students in their public examinations is consistently high and we are equally proud of the young adults they become and the many and varied careers they pursue. The vast majority of our students will continue into higher education and extensive guidance is given to students to assist them in their applications.

  • Art and Design

  • Biology

  • Business

These are non-examined sessions, but form part of our compulsory programme of study for all Sixth Form students.
