Brooke Weston

Post 16 Studies

Associate Principal Peter Kirkbride

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 wide range of choices available to you as you consider your options. Different types of institution, course and subjects make this a hugely important 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 results?
  • Do I want to study in excellent 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 these questions and I wanted to highlight some of the benefits of choosing to study here.

Students are at the heart of Brooke Weston Academy. Every aspect of what we do is focussed on maximising their potential and opening up a lifetime of opportunities. We have been incredibly successful at achieving this over the last 25 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.

There is no doubt that, should you choose 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.

During your time in the Sixth Form there will be opportunities and plenty of exciting possibilities that will allow you to develop into a confident, mature and successful young adult.

Sixth Form will stretch and challenge you from the start, but these are subjects you have chosen and that will lead you to the future you want. Your subject teachers and tutor will work with you on the rewarding journey to becoming an independent and enthusiastic learner.

Academically, these are important years, but we also have numerous fantastic opportunities for you outside of the class room. There are many clubs and groups to join, whatever your interests.

As a student in the Sixth Form you will play a vital, but exciting role within the school. You are now a role model and a leader. You are expected to set the right example, at all times, to our younger students.

Enjoy your time with us. Work hard, play hard and make the most of all the opportunities that come your way!
