An extensive programme of support is offered to ensure all Sixth Form students are fully prepared for the challenges of Sixth Form. We aim to ensure all students make a successful transition from GCSE to the increased demands of KS5 learning.

During Year 11 : Post 16 advice & guidance Year 11 students will have 1:1 advice and guidance from the Head of Sixth Form and also the Careers Advisor. This will give students the opportunity to consider a range of Post 16 options and to ensure they make the best choices for studies. It is also possible for Year 11 students to attend A Level lessons, work alongside Year 12 & 13 students and experience A Level learning and teaching. Students joining Sibford Sixth Form from other schools will be able to experience a taster day following application.
