Joining the Sixth Form

I am very pleased that you are considering joining Poole Grammar School Sixth Form. When OFSTED inspected the school in 2018 they found students’ performance to be above average in the Sixth Form.

Indeed, Poole Grammar School Sixth Form is in the top 25% of schools and colleges in England for A-level value added. In 2018 99% of our Year 13 students passed all their A-levels and nearly 70% achieved grades A*, A or B, the majority securing places at prestigious Russell Group universities. Over the last 5 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 also 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 whilst also developing students’ leadership, teamwork, problem solving and communication skills through the varied 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 one of our Sixth Form events over the next few months.

Mr S. R. Jenkins

Deputy Headteacher (teaching, learning, innovation & Sixth Form)
