Since its establishment in 1995, the Sixth Form at William Farr has been outstandingly successful. We are an academic Sixth Form and offer a wide range of A Level courses. Our A Level results consistently ensure that our Sixth Form is among the top comprehensive schools in the country.
The majority of students in Year 11 choose to continue their education with us and we also welcome students from other schools who wish to join us in Year 12. Our admissions process is the same for both internal and external applicants and aims to give detailed information to ensure complete awareness of the opportunities and expectations that lie ahead.
The Sixth Form is an integral part of the school community. Whilst the Sixth Form has its own private study facilities, all lessons take place throughout the school and Sixth Form students are encouraged to engage with and support the younger year groups.
We are keen for our students to develop their personal skills, as well as achieve academically. Sixth Form students are expected to make a commitment to be involved in the life of the school. Students take advantage of the opportunities for them to join the School Council, be student mentors or homework supervisors, support House events, take part in concerts and productions, as well as raise money for charity.
High expectations, high quality Teaching and Learning and the school’s Care and Guidance ethos ensure that our students flourish. At William Farr we are exceptionally proud of our Sixth Form and its place at the heart of the school community.
