Welcome to Wilmington Grammar Sixth Form

It is our great pleasure, as the Head Teachers of Wilmington Grammar School for Boys and Girls, to introduce you to all that our joint Sixth Form, WG6 has to offer. 

The sixth form journey provides the opportunity for students to flourish, work independently, and with their teachers to raise aspirations and secure outstanding futures. At WG6 we are dedicated to creating an inspirational environment in which students will be challenged to stretch themselves both academically and personally in our pre-university experience. 

We pride ourselves on responding to the changing demands of our students' education and the world beyond school. We have developed a sixth form curriculum that enables our students to achieve at the highest levels whilst also equipping them with the skills needed in a rapidly changing employment landscape. 

Students are offered a range of academic and transferable skills within a vibrant, innovative and supportive campus. Students will learn to develop resourcefulness, resilience and responsibility as well as being challenged to take risks in order to succeed. We offer an extensive range of leadership and extra-curricular opportunities including an exciting elective programme of choice, which allows students to personalise their own journey. 

We are justifiably proud of the fantastic students who are part of WG6, they exhibit all of the qualities that ensure that they stand apart as leaders of tomorrow and are pivotal in co-creating the educational journey of our school community. 

Further details are also available on our website www.wg6.co.uk which also gives a snapshot of events through the termly blog.
