Thank you for your interest in St. John's Sixth Form
Life in our sixth form is centred around helping you to become the very best version of yourself as you begin to prepare for adult life. It is our aim to provide you with the necessary opportunities, advice and guidance to aid your development as a person, whilst also doing all we can to help you achieve your academic potential so that you can access your chosen post-school pathway; either in further education, an apprenticeship or employment.
We have very high expectations for students who attend our Sixth Form; we view our Sixth Form students as role models for not only our younger students in the school, but when promoting our school in the wider community. Students at St John’s should aspire to embody the Catholic Ethos of the school and promote ‘Service to Others’ through charitable works and supporting the local community. We also expect students to prepare for adult life by closely adhering to our standards relating to attendance, punctuality, conduct and self-presentation, in addition to following the Sixth Form Code of Conduct.
Throughout your time in our Sixth Form, we will encourage you to work with members of St John’s staff across the school and provide you with the opportunity to hold positions of responsibility. Showing that you are able to demonstrate teamwork and leadership skills is important as you prepare for your post-18 options, and it will also allow you to develop and gain even more skills such as communication, mentoring and public speaking. However, whilst working hard on your studies and showing professionalism in your responsibilities, we appreciate that social development is also important and therefore every Sixth Form student will have the opportunity to participate in our enrichment programme.
