The Abbey School
Welcome to The Abbey School
Our aim in the Sixth Form at The Abbey School is to support and encourage you to achieve high academic and vocational qualifications. This will provide you with the breadth of education that will prepare you to take your place with confidence in modern society. Commitment and hard work are the keys to success and we intend that the work you do in the Sixth Form will be challenging. Working hard in the Sixth Form is rewarded and we take great pride as we see more and more students taking up places in Higher Education and professional careers.
The Abbey School Sixth Form is a stimulating and supportive community in which there is a commitment to these aims: To promote a passion for learning and the achievement of excellence through challenge and excitement; To encourage integrity, hard work, self-discipline and teamwork; To develop each person’s intellectual, physical, creative and leadership potential; To value each individual and promote mutual respect, showing tolerance, understanding and sensitivity.
Whilst academic achievement is our priority and every encouragement and effort is made to realise each student’s potential, the Sixth Form has much to offer in terms of personal and social development. Students are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities—sport, drama, music, etc and are also expected to play a leadership role, to take the initiative and to organise activities in which they have an interest or talent and which they think will also be of interest to others.
In order to gain the most from Sixth Form life, it is important to have an enthusiastic and positive approach. As students move from Year 11 to Year 12, opportunities to develop their sense of responsibility and leadership are offered through the prefect system and Sixth Form Council, led by the Head Boy and Head Girl.
The school offers additional support on an individual basis. Each case is looked at on its own merits.
