The Sixth Form
Welcome from the Acting Head
Our programme for students making this transition at the end of Year 11 has been carefully designed to ensure that students and parents are fully informed about the process of gaining entry into our Sixth Form. Every year we also welcome fifty or more students into our Sixth Form from other schools. The contributions of these students enhance and enrich Drayton Manor.
The school offers over 25 A Level courses, a BTEC qualification in Creative Media, the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) and the OCR Cambridge Level 2 in Business and Finance. At the same time the Sixth Form at Drayton Manor provides the breadth of experience, which is essential for the challenging requirements of our rapidly changing world.
The Ofsted report from May 2012 states that “The Sixth Form is outstanding. The school has a well deserved reputation of giving all students equal opportunities to succeed” and “Sixth formers are mature, keen and diligent in their studies; most of them proceed to university with high A Level grades.”
The courses we offer complement and build on the knowledge and skills students have acquired during Key Stage 3 and 4 and facilitate progress into higher education and employment. At the same time the Sixth Form at Drayton Manor provides the breadth of experience, which is essential for the challenging requirements of our rapidly changing world.
