Welcome to our Sixth Form
Washwood Heath Academy is a large all-through school which serves the East of Birmingham. We have a long history of supporting local students to achieve excellent results in a wide variety of courses and are the first choice Sixth Form for many of our own students and other local students too.
The vision for Washwood Heath Academy Sixth Form is to raise the aspirations of young adults by nurturing a passion for learning, enriching the student experience and securing outcomes which exceed their expectations.
We are relatively unique in this area being one of the only schools to have a Sixth Form. We passionately believe that we have a unique offer that allows us to compete with Sixth Form colleges across the city. Our knowledge of our students is second to none, and our investment in their wellbeing and achievement is much deeper that at a standalone college. Many of our students have grown up with us, and we are ready to support them in through the challenges of post-16 study. Our results and outcomes speak for themselves, and many of our students go on to thrive in top university courses.
We want to nurture confident, resilient and well-rounded adults who have an aspiration for self-improvement and are able to compete equally with their peers in a world beyond the Sixth Form. In order to achieve this, we will concentrate on:
- Student outcomes;
- Student well-being;
- Developing a passion for lifelong learning;
- Fostering sense of community responsibility;
- Develop independent learners who are robust and resilient in their outlook on life.
Being part of a school based Sixth Form enables students to experience a variety of leadership opportunities. Members of Washwood Heath Academy’s Sixth Form are expected to lead by example and act as role models for the main school. .
Our unique selling point centres around us knowing our students well in terms of academic ability, and emotional capacity. We treat our students as individuals and the programmes of study they follow are individualised to meet their evolving needs.
