It is time to make the biggest decision of your lives so far!
What lies ahead, beyond Year 11?
You are about to make a choice that will define the pathways and opportunities available to you in adulthood. It is a fantastically exciting time (if not a little nerve-racking) and one that I am sure will take you in the direction of your dreams.
Learning with us at Thomas Gainsborough Sixth Form is about joining a community whose sole purpose is to enable you to fulfil those dreams. We know our students, we care about our students, we place great value on the importance of strong relationships and teamwork in order to ensure that every one of our students achieves success.
Developing mature young people in the Sixth Form is about personalising learning, support and experiences to meet every single student’s needs. We believe in a close three-way partnership between students, their families and the school. We work together for one goal and that is you achieving the best you possibly can in your learning and developing as a person.
Our Sixth Form is characterised by teachers who know their students well. They are able to provide regular and highly effective feedback in students’ learning. They share information regularly and effectively with parents and students so that parents are involved in the learning journey.
Our students develop self-confidence in their learning: ensuring they become independent, resilient, happy young adults who make a positive
contribution to their community.
The Prospectus is designed to provide you with an insight into what goes on here at Thomas Gainsborough Sixth Form both within the classroom and beyond. Sixth Form is about becoming the person that you want to be. It is about grasping opportunities and making the most of the exciting, enjoyable and fulfilling years of your entire school career.
