The Sixth Form

The Park Academies Trust Sixth Form is a relatively new entity in the educational landscape of Swindon.  Having formally opened in September 2014, we have quickly established ourselves as the top performing sixth form centre for student progress in both Swindon and Cirencester. 

At our sixth form we are proud to be offering an education that will help you flourish academically, socially and personally.  The secret of our success is having a group of outstanding teachers who build on the knowledge of all our students as individuals, and who are committed to excellence.

Tutor time is compulsory, a vital time to ensure preparation for progression is clear and that tutors have the best relationships to write outstanding references.  Our team of expert tutors are keen to prepare you for the next stage of your education, whether it is university, Degree Apprenticeship, Higher Apprenticeship, Advanced Apprenticeship or employment.  The whole post 18 destination application processes can be daunting, we will guide you through it step by step, so you have the best possible chance of achieving your goal.

At The Park Academies Trust sixth form we give every student the opportunity to ensure they can really sell themselves to a prospective employer or university.  For example, all students undertake a work experience placement, have the opportunity to be part of the Student Union and develop their learning outside of the classroom via activities such as Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award and Extended Project Qualification.

For us to work together to achieve all your goals, we ask that you attend regularly and take responsibility for developing your skills and talents with determination.  Throughout your studies, we are dedicated to tracking your progress and promise to inform you and your parents on how well you are doing.

There is also an outstanding selection of enrichment activities available to you, designed to enhance your life outside of the classroom.  Whatever your talents and interests, The Park Academies Trust will have something for you.

Our prospectus will give you all the information needed to help you navigate your way through life as a sixth form student at The Park Academies Trust.
