Entry to our “Sixth Form” is dependent on students having achieved specific academic qualifications.  Some students may be accepted into the Sixth Form on a probationary basis.  The Welwyn Hatfield Consortium allows a wide range of subjects to be studied at Advanced Level in the Sixth Form, as well as A.V.C.E. courses.

Sixth Form life offers students a variety of educational and social experiences, which are frequently linked in a comprehensive complementary studies programme, culminating in a General Studies ‘A’ Level qualification. Details of all Sixth Form courses are published in a booklet, which is issued to all Year 11 students.
