Welcome to Sixth Form
The Sixth Form is outstanding and reflects the school’s significant investment in its development. Students’ personal development is outstanding. Students appreciate the high quality of teaching and learning they receive and welcome the calm learning environment.
Our Ofsted inspection judged our Sixth Form to be outstanding in all areas and our results have been consistently excellent in recent years.
We are a large and very successful Sixth Form with an excellent reputation in the local community and a friendly, supportive atmosphere. Our students are bright and enthusiastic young people who have chosen to continue their education at Valentines or have been welcomed in to the Sixth Form from other schools.
At Valentines we offer a very wide range of academic and vocational courses, all with excellent teaching and high standards of achievement. Progress is carefully monitored so that students can achieve their full potential, with over 90% of our Year 13’s regularly going on to university. We offer a high level of support, with students, teachers and parents working together to ensure success.
Please look carefully through the curriculum section of this booklet to see for yourself the exceptional opportunities that Valentines can offer you.
Expectations are high and so are the rewards. Our Sixth Form is a vibrant community with a strong emphasis on personal development. We offer an enrichment programme and many opportunities for our students to develop responsibility and leadership skills.
We are very proud of our students who are excellent role models and who thrive in the exciting environment at Valentines.
The Sixth Form is housed in an excellent building, opened in September 2007 which provides dedicated facilities such as a large common room and well equipped private study centre. We have a lot to offer students and hope that you would like to be a part of an outstanding Sixth Form.
