The Sixth Form at Oaktree School is a very important place to be. Not only are our Sixth Formers role models to the younger students showing how to behave in all aspects of school life, but it is also a time for preparing to move on to the challenges beyond school.
Time in the Sixth Form therefore is a mixture of academic studies, learning to be independent, work experience opportunities, independent travel training, enterprise projects and helping out as monitors around the school.
The majority of our Sixth Formers go on to local colleges to study courses of interest to them. Careers advisors regularly visit school offering guidance and advice on post school placements including further education and employment possibilities. In preparation for this, there is an ‘Options’ component in the curriculum which allows Sixth Formers to drop some subjects and concentrate on those which particularly interest them.
Identified by a different colour school uniform, our Sixth Formers have their own purpose built Sixth Form base in which the can work, relax and enjoy snacks and meals.
