Sixth Form Information

Thank you for taking an interest in our Sixth Form.

 

At St Bernard’s we pride ourselves in educating the whole person, ensuring that students become the best versions of themselves that they can be.

We have very high expectations of our students who are supported by caring tutors and dedicated and professional subject staff. In Sixth Form, students are taught to become more independent and are responsible for managing their studies.

Aspirational grades set alongside target grades ensure that our students are always striving to achieve their best.

Not only do we offer a comprehensive range of A levels but also physical education, philosophy and ethics, and a varied and interesting enrichment course designed by and reflecting the interests of our student body. In addition, there are also musical and drama productions, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Mock trial and Mathematics Competitions as well as opportunities for developing leadership skills. Service to the school as tutors and mentors to younger students, and to the community with the Senior Citizens’ Party are some of the activities to name but a few.

The vast majority of our students progress to Higher Education. We regularly have students who gain places at Oxford or Cambridge and many to Russell Group universities. The few that don’t apply to university are supported through their applications to a variety of other courses and apprenticeship schemes.

Parents are kept informed of students’ progress with Effort & Attainment grade sheets, together with a full written report in both Year 12 and Year 13. There are also two Parents’ Evenings, one in December for Year 12 and another in December of Year 13. Parents may also contact the school at any time if they have any issues that need to be resolved.
