Hayes Sixth Form offers the opportunity for young people to study, socialise and develop in a structured and caring environment. Our vision ensures that students in Hayes Sixth Form make excellent progress in their studies and become well rounded individuals ready for their next steps in Higher Education, apprenticeships or employment. This is borne out with our excellent A-Level results in 2017 placing us in the top 25% of schools nationally, where 63% of our Year 13 students achieved A*-B grades overall. We are a highly popular Sixth Form with a thriving community of approximately 500 students who make a significant contribution to school life.
A key strategy we use to ensure our students can fulfil their personal and academic aspirations is through providing a wide range of opportunities. Student leadership is a key priority and we ensure that all sixth formers have the chance to fulfil a leadership role via our Head Boy and Head Girl Team, becoming a Prefect, Peer Mentoring younger students, charity drives, and by representing the school on a local and even national scale. Equally students can access our impressive range of extra-curricular opportunities in Sport, Music, Drama and many other areas. Sixth Formers help to develop the Sixth Form and run the school council assisted by both teaching and non-teaching staff.
Our Destination pathways are bespoke and cater for a wide range of aspirations. In 2017 we supported 173 students in Year 13 to secure places at University, 49 of whom in highly regarded Russell Group institutions. Alongside that, we also work with numerous guest speakers and apprenticeship providers and a just over a fifth of our students entered the world of employment, apprenticeships and training as a result. Indeed, many of these claimed places on highly sought after A-Level leaver programmes.
Ultimately, teaching and learning is our core business and we are proud to boast a high quality of provision across our curriculum which truly distinguishes our Sixth Form. Studies towards various subjects are complimented by the development of study skills and education surrounding a range of social, moral and cultural issues relevant to our cohort. We are proud of the success academically and personally of the young men and women who, when they leave our Sixth Form, are in a far stronger position to make a success of their lives and contribute to the world in which they live.
