Sixth Form

 Sixth Form life at Arthur Mellows is more than just the subjects students study – the College provides students with a diverse range of opportunities, both academic and extra-curricular.  Our curriculum is driven by our students and we continually endeavour to introduce courses that not only meet their needs but equip them to be highly competitive when leaving the College.  We have a thorough induction process that ensures the smooth transition for current students and those being welcomed from other schools and colleges.  We recognise the differing nature of students, the importance of a variety of learning styles and the opportunity for individual support and guidance.

The College has high expectations of our Sixth Form and in return students will receive exceptional outcomes.  A positive attitude, self motivation and the ability to be an active learner will lead to outstanding exam results and future opportunities.  Attendance, meeting deadlines and good study habits will ensure excellent learning experiences.  We expect students to be role models that younger students look up to – creating an environment of aspirational and confident students.
