Why not join us?

The AW6 Approach.

The stand-alone nature of AW6 allows us to have a culture where independence is encouraged. You will take responsibility for your learning and progress, just as you would at university or in your first job. Here, however, there will always be the support of your personal tutor and mentors to keep you on track.

Academic Offer.

Alongside A Levels, you will benefit from many other academic opportunities such as the Extended Project Qualification and nationally recognised initiatives including Young Enterprise. Your timetable will be populated with lectures, 1:1 tutorials, Future Ready enrichment sessions and free periods.

Future Ready.

We offer a first class future ready self-development programme. We want to ensure that when you leave us you are ready for your first job, university or apprenticeship interview and have the confidence, resilience and strength of character you need for your next adventure beyond school.

It feels like a much more grown up environment at AW6.

The exciting new investment into facilities at AW6 has recently been completed and features dedicated spaces for each subject area, including a brand new Media Suite, fully-equipped Creative Arts Studio and a Music Technology recording studio, along with newly refurbished science laboratories and classrooms complete with Smartboard technology.

There are also plenty of silent and group study spaces, social spaces, common rooms and the onsite café for however you choose to spend your time during free periods, all with a Pre-U approach in mind, and with the aim to develop independence and encourage collaborative learning.

Award winning

2022 Award

"A £1m undertaking, the new Sixth Form AW6 site opened in Sept 21 at Tile House Mansion, a grand Victorian estate roughly 15 minutes from the Senior School. With a palpable campus-like feel (no uniforms and purely 17-18 year olds) it offers something very different to most day school Sixth Forms in the area. No surprise that Akeley Wood was judged Highly Commended in our Muddy Stilettos Best Schools Awards 2022 in the ‘Special Sixth Form’ category."
