What our students say...
From my first day in Year 12, I felt there would always be support when I needed it from highly committed staff. I also took the opportunity to do lots of things outside of study, including Young Enterprise, Duke of Edinburgh Award and taking part in school debates. These activities really helped me when applying for University.
My time in Sixth Form was truly unforgettable and I will always be thankful for how well I have been prepared, both academically and socially, for the next stage of my life. The small class sizes and personal attention from teachers really helped me to learn effectively, and motivated me to do independent study.
Life in the Sixth Form
Teesside High School places equal importance on both academic and pastoral care in the Sixth Form. You can be sure that attending our School for the Lower and Upper Sixth, you will achieve the best possible A-Level results of which you are capable, and that great care will be paid to ensure that you leave us a happy and confident young adult, ready to face the challenges posed in the next stage of your life. In the Sixth Form you will be encouraged to stretch yourself, make yourself head and assume a great deal of responsibility in terms of leadership of the younger pupils.
In the Lower Sixth students usually study four AS subjects but there is flexibility to allow students to study fewer or more subjects. In addition, many student take General Studies A-Level successfully. Students may also study for the Extended Project Qualification. We have a wide range of A-Level subjects on offer. Throughout Year 11 and after you have received your GCSE results, subject teachers and the Senior Tutor Sixth Form are available to discuss A-Level choices and combinations.
A special feature of life in the Sixth Form at Teesside High School is caring and close-knit nature of our community. Unlike larger establishments, staff can and do know all students very indeed and are able to offer one to one support and guidance when necessary.
