Introduction to Thurstable Sixth Form Centre

Welcome to Thurstable Sixth Form!

Our mission is simple…

To ensure that every student develops the qualifications, talents, and skills they require to succeed in their adult lives by providing them with the excellent teaching, support and challenge each of them needs.

We are very proud of our Sixth Form and the school’s strong reputation in the community, which has been spearheaded by the drive and initiative of our senior students. At Thurstable Sixth Form we pride ourselves in offering a truly unique academic and enrichment programme. We offer top range facilities and specialist teaching with small class sizes. Our teachers are experts in their field and can give you the help and one-to-one support you need to achieve success and develop key skills that will be invaluable in the future.

We are fully focused on your academic and personal ambitions. If you join our Sixth Form we will expect you to work hard in a broad range of challenging courses, but, at the same time, make a wider contribution to the school and community at large. We aim to ensure that you are prepared for your future by delivering enrichment programmes on such issues as driving safety, sexual health and managing finances. We also hope that the enrichment programme, opportunities for responsibility and extra-curricular activities will ensure that you develop more than just your academic abilities. This is combined with focussed support from the whole team in your progression path whether it be university, employment, apprenticeships or volunteering.

We offer a variety of opportunities to get involved in life beyond the classroom. You could shape your involvement around your interests or try something new:

 • Sixth Form Committee         

• Young Enterprise                                            

• Mid-day Assistant

• Work Shadowing

• Sixth Form Committee

• Year 7 Camp

Thurstable Sixth Form will give you every opportunity to succeed. Like many students that have gone before you we hope that you will continue this strong tradition and maximise your future potential.
