Preparing our Learners to become Future Leaders
St. Dominic’s Sixth Form provides a positive and seamless progression from the Senior School, treating pupils as young adults and preparing them for their future beyond the School. Our strong academic record in the Sixth Form emphasises a personalised approach to learning. We offer a multitude of A Level courses and provide a balance of traditional, academic and more practical subjects.
The Sixth Form Centre is a modern award winning building which provides a fantastic facility for study, research and recreation. Students are also welcome to make use of the Senior ICT Suite and Ipads, although many do prefer to bring their own laptop with access to Wifi and printers. In recognition of students growing maturity and independence, pupils abide by a ‘Business Dress’ code.
Enrichment programmes are also a key part of our Sixth Form education provision with many pupils excelling in Sport, Performing Arts and Music. Sixth Formers are encouraged to take part in activities such as Young Enterprise, Duke of Edinburgh, World Challenge and a variety of work experience.
Students are given full support to prepare for the future, including university and career advice, business networking and guidance from their tutor and personal mentor. There are support workshops dedicated to developing interview technique and mock panels. Academic achievement at A level is consistently high, with students predominantly gaining a place at their first choice of university.
