Higham Lane
Sixth Form

Sixth Form Welcome


Higham Lane Sixth Form will provide you with an outstanding post-16 experience where you can study and develop your wider skills, in order to achieve your very best on your journey to university, an apprenticeship or employment.

In our Sixth Form we have planned every aspect of our work to ensure that you receive excellent provision. Our Sixth Form facilities will provide you with the perfect physical environment for learning, allowing you to be independent and able to study at a time and pace or place that suits your needs. This includes silent and quiet study spaces, a range of seminar and teaching rooms, together with a dedicated cafe and kitchenette for your own personal use.

Our staff are highly-qualified, experienced and committed to providing you with the highest-possible quality of teaching in every subject area. We will keep a careful check on your progress and provide comprehensive support through our  academic tutoring. Partnership between our teachers, students and parents/carers is central to the way we work.

You will engage in a wide range of enrichment activities to develop your leadership skills including working with younger students, supporting the community and taking part in a number of exciting opportunities. We are proud that our students have extremely high expectations of themselves and aspire to achieve as highly as possible. If you are interested in being part of such a focused, happy, fulfilling environment in which to complete your Sixth Form studies, we would be delighted to hear from you!
