Information for Prospective Sixth Formers

Dear Prospective Sixth Former,

I am delighted that you are considering spending the next two years studying in our Sixth Form at Brooke Weston Academy.

I am very aware of the huge range of choice available to you as you consider your options. Different types of institution, courses and subjects make this a hugely exciting time.

As you make the exciting decision of where to study next, the following questions are critical:

  • Do I want to join an outstanding Sixth Form?
  • Do I want to join a Sixth Form with a history of outstanding results?
  • Do I want to study in world class facilities?
  • Do I want to join a Sixth Form with outstanding pastoral care?
  • Do I want a Sixth Form experience that prepares me for University life?

I believe Brooke Weston Academy provides the answers to all of the questions above and I wanted to highlight to you some of the benefits of choosing our school. At the heart of what we are about at Brooke Weston are the students. Every aspect of what we do is focussed on maximising their potential and opening up a life time of opportunities. We have been incredibly successful at achieving this over the last twenty-five years. Our grading of Outstanding by Ofsted and our leadership of the Brooke Weston Academy Teaching School all reflect the commitment of this Academy to academic success.

Our Sixth Form is key part of Brooke Weston Academy and although we do things a bit differently, compared to other Sixth Forms, it is clearly successful with outstanding results being achieved year after year. Over 80% of our Sixth Form go onto University with the rest entering high quality apprenticeships or the world of work. Every year our Sixth Formers join a range of exciting courses at high quality Universities, including Russel Group Universities. We have a fantastic track record of supporting students to Oxford or Cambridge with eight joining Cambridge in 2015 and a further eight looking to join this year. Whatever your goal, ambition or dream Brooke Weston Academy and its dedicated Sixth Form Team is determined to help you achieve it.

Our facilities are outstanding with a dedicated Sixth Form study area, world class library and extensive IT, sporting, dance, drama and learning facilities. All of this is set in a fantastic campus near to Corby. We have an extensive bus network to help the Sixth Form attend Brooke Weston Academy.

We offer a wide range of A Levels and vocational courses but I feel strongly that the Sixth Form is about more than just academic study. This is an Academy with a heart and soul. Our extensive IEC programme helps you develop skills, characteristics and experiences that will help you succeed at University. Opportunities include triathlon training, placements in local primary schools and work experience. Extra-curricular activities take place after school every day and we have a wide range of exciting trips, expeditions and enrichment opportunities for the Sixth Form. Some of our current Year 13 students have just returned from a World Challenge expedition to Borneo.

There is no doubt that should you chose to study at Brooke Weston Academy you will work hard, but you will be supported every step of the way by a dedicated team of teachers, staff and tutors, all working together to make sure you exceed your potential. I know that moving from school to a different Sixth Form can be daunting but here at Brooke Weston Academy you will be supported and receive a highly effective induction into both the Sixth Form and post 16 study.

The best way to see what we are about at Brooke Weston Academy is to come and meet us. This year we have a dedicated Sixth Form showcase evening on:

  • Thursday 16th November 2017
  • Thursday 1st February 2018
