Welcome to Sandbach School Sixth Form! We are a growing and dynamic sixth form enrolling boys and girls from 16-19. Our primary aim is to provide outstanding opportunities for our students both inside and outside of the classroom and to maximise their potential. As one of the leading post-16 providers in Cheshire East, we have a proven track record of students achieving the best possible outcomes to best prepare them for life beyond school. In 2013 our consistently excellent A Level results were recognised by ALPS (A Level Performance System) as being in the top 5% of post-16 providers nationally.

Achievement at Sandbach School goes beyond the academic excellence that we all strive for. As you will see in the following pages, students in our sixth form are developed as people through a broad range of extra curricular opportunities and a student leadership programme. Whether you are successful in getting onto the Senior Student Team, or work as an learning mentor for younger students, you will be supported in your own personal leadership goals. Students’ long term aims and ambitions are also supported and developed through a program of advice and guidance that ensures all students are well informed to make decisions about their future.

As a prospective student, or parent, I hope you will find this website useful as you make your choices.

We look forward to welcoming you into our sixth form!

Sixth Form Open Evening

There are a number of events that are designed to help you make informed decisions about your post-16 education.

Our September Open Evening revolves around introductory talks from the Head teacher and the Head of Sixth Form along with the opportunity to talk to the subject leaders of the many different subjects on offer.

28th September 2016
Subject Fair : 
4.30pm- 6.00pm.  Presentations at 6.00pm.

Teachers will be available to talk about their subjects in terms of the content taught, assessment and the entry requirements for the course. Throughout the evening our Senior Students and Sixth Form Support Staff are present to talk to you and answer questions about subject choices and life in the Sixth Form.  We believe this evening will prove to be very informative and will help your son/daughter to make important decisions about his/her academic future.

We welcome applications from boys and girls in the South Cheshire area.

To further ensure a smooth transition to Key Stage 5 study, we are planning A-level Taster Days later in the year.  Details will be available nearer to the time.

Making the right choice

The Russell Group, a collaboration of well-respected research based universities, produced a thorough and informative guide to choosing your A-levels with the next step in mind. You can use this link or search ‘informed choices’ to find the video clip and associated information booklet.
