Sixth Form Prospectus
Manshead CE Academy has a well-established and successful Sixth Form. We rank in the top 10% of Sixth Forms in the country for achievement and we have a well-deserved reputation within Bedfordshire. Our Prospectus for 2018-19 is available via the link at the foot of this page; it will provide you with important advice about choosing your subjects and with information about the courses that are on offer.
At Manshead CE Academy 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 leadership 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 academic progress reports and through conversations with your Sixth Form Personal Tutor. You will have access to the 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 Russell Group Universities.
We collaborate with Queensbury Academy Sixth Form and The Performing Arts Depot to increase the choice and possible combinations of subjects. The collaboration works very well and students from both academies are made to feel very welcome at all three sites. For the vast majority of students this arrangement will not involve any travelling between sites but where this is required transport will be provided.
We look forward to seeing you at our Open Evening on Thursday 16th November, where you will receive more information about life in Manshead CE Academy’s Sixth Form as well as have the opportunity to speak to staff and students about Sixth Form courses.
