Sixth Form Welcome

At Roding Valley Sixth Form, we offer an outstanding level of support and provision for all the students in our care in an academic and aspirational environment. We offer first-class, academic provision in 25 different subjects, combined with an extra-curricular and enrichment programme which ensures we develop well-rounded and successful young people. Our school motto, Aspiration, Respect, Endeavour is echoed in our sixth form provision and we have high expectations of all our students. Academic success, extra-curricular enrichment and university and careers provision are at the forefront of what we do.

We are a medium sized sixth form comprised of a diverse and highly talented cohort of exceptional young people. We have extremely high expectations of all our students in all areas of their lives; personal appearance, conduct and academic standards. Our students are motivated and determined to be successful in the future; many go on to obtain first class degrees from prestigious universities or are successful in undertaking competitive higher level apprenticeships. They will receive support with this every step of the way with targeted careers provision, tailored to needs to individual students.

Our accommodation provision is something we are rightly proud of, following recent investment students now have dedicated study space which has been likened to university provision. This contains a purpose built study centre with space for private study with 40 high-speed PCs to support learning. As students make the transition from GCSE to A level, they are supported with a focused and academic learning environment.

Sixth formers will join a successful school community of over 1300 students and it is expected that they will act as role-models and leaders. We offer a range of leadership opportunities for students that allow sixth formers to bring about positive change and influence the lives of their younger peers. Should they decide the role of Head boy / Head Girl, house captain, sixth form captain or subject ambassador is right for them, we provide these opportunities so that students can share their experience with lower years and learn soft skills along the way. Our student leadership is integral to the success of our sixth form.

Roding Valley Sixth form provides first rate teaching and learning within an academic environment, whilst also preparing students for their careers beyond education and the challenges of 21st century life.
