Baysgarth sixth Form is the first choice locally for high quality academic and vocational qualifications. You will receive an excellent standard of education from teachers you already know and trust. You will be pushed to achieve your potential either through an academic A Level route, a mixed A Level and BTEC/OCR route, or through our Humber Skills Centre Pathways. Maximum choice and flexibility is assured through our partnership with JLC which allows for a wider range of subjects to be studied and gives you the support and guidance that students at larger colleges enjoy.
From October 2016 the Sixth Form will have pride of place in its own dedicated suite of rooms on the top floor of our brand new school. As well as dedicated work and social spaces, we have access to an IT suite and several dedicated seminar rooms for our exclusive use.
Your Sixth Form is what you make it. It is not a continuation of the five years you have already spent here. It is a completely new environment where barriers between year groups dissolve and you take more responsibility for your own learning and future career path. It is a time when you are encouraged to grow and try new things.
You will have a dedicated mentor who will be in regular contact with you, and you can get in touch with them by telephone and e-mail. Face to face meetings will be arranged so your mentor will get to know you, and can direct you to other support available.
You will have free time at the sixth form, and it is your choice what you do in this free time. We give all students the chance to take part in work experience as we believe this helps improve confidence, employability skills, allow students to gain an insight into a career and provide an advantage when applying for University, Apprenticeships or Employment against other applicants! It is the responsibility of the student to source Work Experience, however the Industry Education Advisor is on hand to support and help students with this should they struggle to find something suitable.
If you are a Baysgarth pupil, you already know you will probably be considering staying on. If you are not here already, the decision is much harder - so do make sure you find out all you need to know. Come along and ask us all your questions and, most important of all, talk with Sixth Formers who are already here.
