Sixth Form Open Evening Presentation by Mrs G. Walton, Assistant Head - Sixth Form



Newlands Sixth Form is a centre of excellence for students wishing to study and learn in an academic and nurturing environment.  We offer 26 A-Level subjects along with 3 BTEC options.  Specialist subject teaching staff deliver high quality lessons to empower students through their learning journey.  Students leave Newlands equipped with the highest grades and a solid foundation to build upon when starting university, an apprenticeship or employment with training. 


Year 12 and 13 Parents’ Evenings take place in November and December with termly reports issued throughout the year to track progress.  Students wear a black suit (from either Goyals or School Days Direct) as part of the Sixth Form Dress Code.

“Students are well prepared for the next stage of their education. They receive informative careers advice. This means that they make appropriate choices at the end of Year 13. Almost all students go to university after their 16 to 19 study programme, and a significant number secure places at Russell Group universities.”


"Teachers have very high aspirations for pupils. Teachers use their secure subject knowledge to ensure that pupils thrive on interesting activities.”
