Sixth Form

*STOP PRESS*

Work has now begun on a new state-of-the-art Sixth Form Centre at Teesside High School. The work began within days of staff and pupils at the School celebrating when the planning application for the brand new Sixth Form Centre was approved by Stockton Borough Council.

The School unveiled the plans for its brand new Sixth Form building in March. The bespoke, two storey building will be located on the school site with the design of a scale to meet the growing demand for Sixth Form places from across the Tees Valley and beyond. The School received confirmation of the funding for the Sixth Form in January and work has moved on apace since then. Read more here.

In the Sixth Form we provide a pre-University environment where the atmosphere is challenging and purposeful, strengthening each student’s ability to face the world with confidence and independence.

Our Sixth Formers enjoy the benefits of their own self-contained centre which is intended as a stepping-stone to University.

In the Sixth Form, young men and women find that they have considerably more freedom than the rest of the school and are encouraged to develop the self-discipline and study habits so important to success in Higher Education. Whilst the most important part of the Sixth Form is, of course, its academic content, pupils are treated essentially as adults and share the responsibility for organising their own private study periods.

The Tutors undertake regular monitoring to ensure that each individual is reaching their full potential. Reports and assessments are provided at regular intervals with ample opportunity for the subject staff, Tutors, students and parents to communicate and discuss progress.

We never lose sight of the fact that we are preparing young adults for a rapidly and radically changing world. They are encouraged to gain valuable insight into working life through involvement with local industries, businesses and professions. They also benefit from a diverse range of speakers and advisors, visits, work experience, conferences and courses as well as joining the whole school’s activities programme.

Unlike Sixth Form Colleges, because our Sixth Formers are an integral part of the School as a whole, they have the opportunity to undertake very real responsibilities by making an invaluable contribution to the day to day running of the School, including helping with the younger pupils, organising clubs and activities and running inter-house competitions and the School Council: the voice of the pupils.

By the time they leave Sixth Form, leadership skills are well developed. We certainly find that this important aspect of post 16 education pays dividends when it comes to University interviews and the application process.
