Sixth Form Prospectus
Manshead School Sixth Form is a well-established and successful one. We rank in the top half of sixth forms in the country for achievement and we have a well-deserved reputation within Bedfordshire. Our 2017-18 Prospectus is now available below; we hope that it will provide you with important advice about choosing your subjects and information about the courses that are on offer.
Our Open Evening for students considering our Sixth Form for entry in September 2017 will be on Thursday 17th November 2016 between 6.30pm and 8.30 pm (with presentations in the Main Hall from the Sixth Form Leadership Team at 6.30pm and 7pm).
We hope that our prospectus will provide you with important advice about choosing your subjects and information about the courses that are on offer.
At Manshead we believe that two of the most important features of the Sixth Form are the quality of the teaching and the rigorous academic monitoring employed by the tutors and sixth form management team. As a student you will be assessed regularly and will receive regular feedback on your progress towards your target grades. You and your parents are kept informed through our academic progress reports and through conversations with your Sixth Form Personal Tutor. You will have access to our excellent library and ICT facilities to support your studying.
The majority of the students leaving the Sixth Form progress to study at University with many of them gaining places at the top universities.
We collaborate with Queensbury Academy Sixth Form to increase the choice and increase the possible combinations of subjects. The collaboration works very well and students from both schools are made to feel very welcome at both sites. For the vast majority of students this arrangement will not involve any traveling between sites but where this is required transport will be provided.
We look forward to seeing you at our Open Evening on Thursday 17th November, where you will receive more information about life in Manshead Sixth Form as well as the opportunity to speak to staff and students about Sixth Form courses.
