Joining the Sixth Form

In 2017 over 98% of our Year 13 students passed all their A-levels and 60% achieved grades A*, A or B; 86% progressed to higher education, the majority securing places at prestigious Russell Group universities. Over the last 6 years, 20 students have gained entry to either the University of Oxford or the University of Cambridge and a significant number have gone on to read medicine, veterinary medicine or dentistry at university.

Every year we have a number of students gaining places on extremely competitive higher level apprenticeships with local employers such as Cobham and J P Morgan. All students progress into higher education, apprenticeships or employment after Year 13.

The reason for the school’s outstanding progression rates is that the Sixth Form provides academic excellence and it also develops students’ leadership, teamwork, problem solving and communication skills through the enrichment, sport and games programme.

I hope that you choose to continue your education at Poole Grammar School Sixth Form and look forward to meeting you at our information evening or taster morning over the next few months.
