Wingate Sixth is a key part of our highly successful school and as a Sixth Former you will enjoy an environment where you will experience a new level of independence and challenge. Possibly for the first time, you’ll have time when you are not in class, time we trust that you will spend productively. We believe in supporting you to develop your unique skills and talents that will allow you to move on and achieve your goals and ambitions, whether those are at University or moving into the world of employment.
Our small class sizes are an ideal setting for you to learn, discuss and develop the all-important questioning and reasoning skills that will help you maximise your potential at A Level. Achieving good A Level grades demand that you spend time researching and studying your chosen subjects and to enable you to do this there are three computer rooms, a dedicated study room and time allocated for you to meet regularly with your mentor to discuss your progress.
We have a team of highly qualified teachers with a track record of success. Our academic record speaks for itself and last year 100% of our students entered some of the most prestigious universities in the UK and further afield. Our multi-cultural school community boasted nineteen different nationalities at the last count!
Equally, we encourage students to get involved in extra-curricular activities to help broaden their experiences and encourage a spirit of helpfulness and co-operation. Opportunities range from the Sports Leadership course to working with younger students who need support with classroom activities. If you have a particular area of interest then you may be able to assist a subject teacher with classes in the Lower Senior or Junior School. This involvement in community activities is highly regarded by both employers and universities.
Wherever you see yourself in the future, Wingate Sixth is the ideal location to start you on your journey.
