Painsley’s brand new Sixth Form

I am delighted to announce Painsley’s brand new Sixth Form College.  Painsley already has an outstanding reputation for delivering academic excellence and is ranked as the highest performing school in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire (Real Schools’ Guide 2016).  This outstanding and proven record in delivering excellent teaching and learning continues in to our Sixth Form.

Students participate in excellent enrichment opportunities, which include numerous sports, societies, trips both in the UK and worldwide, and work experience.  There are a variety of societies available,  for example, a medical society which provides an enrichment opportunity for students wishing to enter the medical profession.  The enrichment programme includes a vast number of university visits, taster sessions and workshops where students are able to talk and work alongside real-life practitioners.

There is a wide range of courses available at ‘A’ level and a number of vocational programmes.  In each subject, students have 9 hours formal taught lessons, with two hours per fortnight tutorials, which follows the university style of learning.  This is the case in all subjects studies.  In addition, students have access to a Personal Tutor and Pastoral Lead system where they are supported on a one-to-one basis throughout their studies.

The newly refurbished Sixth Form building provides students with a relaxed and mature learning environment which includes: quiet study zones, group-work rooms and a Learning Resource Centre.  In addition, students are able to relax and socialise with friends in the newly refurbished coffee-hub area.  Furthermore, Sixth Formers also have access to the Painsley gym.

This is a really exciting time for students to be joining the Painsley Sixth Form.  It is not only crucial that students achieve their academic potential, but it is important that they enjoy their time with us, in a relaxed and mature Sixth Form environment.  We welcome all students, of all faiths and none.

I look forward to welcoming you to our Sixth Form in September.
