At Brooke Weston Academy we work hard to ensure that the transition from Year 11 into the Sixth Form enables our students to develop the specific skills they need to achieve their target grades and broaden their experiences.
Sixth Form students will enjoy more independence in their learning. We recognise that students have many demands on their time and we will work with them to ensure that they are able to experience a range of activities alongside their academic studies.
Students joining us in Year 12 visit the school individually with their parents as part of the application process. Following the publication of GCSE results, they will be invited to a special familiarisation day prior to the main Sixth Form induction day. Here they will meet other new students and have the opportunity to get used to the building, choose their options and adjust to the expectations at Brooke Weston Academy.
Career guidance and support
Careers education and guidance is provided as part of the curriculum and we have our own on-site advisor who can guide on all matters relating to the world of work. This includes information on career opportunities, university courses, personal statements, educational references and preparing CVs and job applications, apprenticeships and substantial one-to-one support for those seeking employment. All services are delivered impartially in line with Government requirements.
Tutors, the Head of Sixth Form and the careers advisor are all available to assist students in making choices for universities and they will be guided and helped through the UCAS application process at every stage.
