The Sixth Form at Saint Cecilia’s has a track record of enviable exam results that are well above the national average, placing us among the top 5% of schools nationally. This combination means that our students have a bright future with the majority of them securing places at prestigious universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.

During the Sixth Form years, students go through a transition period where progression and continuity are very important. The information in this booklet will outline what options are available in our Sixth Form, in order to help prospective students decide what subjects and types of courses are best suited to meet their career paths. We advise applicants to read carefully the additional subject information and course requirements in the booklet below in order to obtain all the necessary information before making their final choices. The average class size for the Sixth Form is 16 students. Students are expected to choose four subjects in Year 12 and continue with three of them into Year 13.

We focus on increasing each student’s portfolio of nationally recognised qualifications to accredit learning.

The school’s Christian foundation lies at the heart of our Sixth Form, and the Christian faith is shown through every aspect of our school life. Sixth Form students are therefore required to be in sympathy with the ethos of a Church of England school in order to participate fully in all that we offer.

“The sixth form is a strength of the school and has a track record of success in recent years. Typically, students’ progress is above average… This is very much down to leaders’ single-minded focus on making sure that students are well prepared for the academic rigour of post-16 study. Leaders combine this with swift and targeted action where there are concerns about students’ achievement.” Ofsted
