Welcome from our Head of Sixth Form

Here at Archbishop Beck Catholic Sports College we set our standards high. Our aim is to equip our students with the skills, qualifications and work experience to ensure success at University and in future career choices.

We are extremely proud of our academic achievements and are members of a very elite group with a 100% pass rate at both A Level and BTEC National. Our students are highly motivated and very much enjoy their experience here in the Sixth Form.

Our fully wireless, purpose-built Sixth Form Zone is well equipped with new classroom facilities, extensive ICT equipment, large independent study areas and student leisure facilities to enhance their Sixth Form experience.

Students are also offered an extensive enrichment programme with opportunities to undertake NHS placements, Primary school experience, Duke of Edinburgh, British Sign Language courses, CSLA and others. They are directed towards voluntary and weekend opportunities designed to enhance their CVs and contribute positively to the local community.

The staff and students are extremely proud of their Sixth Form and I look forward to welcoming you to our Sixth Form in September.
