Post 16

Post 16The Queen Elizabeth’s Academy sixth form is a lively and flourishing community whose aspirations and achievements are expanding all the time. Students are given the opportunity to continue their education beyond the end of compulsory schooling in a supportive, challenging, quality environment.

All students are expected to work hard during their time in sixth form and push themselves to succeed. There is an expectation that all sixth formers will become role models within the academy, setting the standards of behaviour, attendance, appearance and commitment to the values of Queen Elizabeth’s.

The wealth of courses on offer, together with high quality resources, teaching, opportunities and respect for all, enable our students to aspire to greatness in whatever it is that they choose to do. The role of academy staff is to provide appropriate guidance and information to enable all students to reach their goals.

Together with accessing our dedicated Sixth Form on the academy site, students will also have the opportunity to access a wide range of courses at the Hucknall Sixth Form Centre alongside peers from two other local academies. This will provide access to further teaching expertise, together with mixing with new people who are on the same academic pathways, sharing knowledge and experiences.

We place great emphasis on personal development of all students. Our sixth form cohort are encouraged to engage in the broader life of the academy and local community and have the opportunity to get involved in extra-curricular activities designed to encourage responsibility and show commitment.
