Come and meet us, discuss your results and choose from our vast range of subjects at A level
A warm welcome awaits you at Akeley Wood School Open House where you can find out about our breadth of curriculum with unrivalled opportunities for Years 12 and 13 students to focus on leadership skills, self-development and on giving back to their community.
Our Sixth Form students benefit from:
- Access to over 25 subject choices at A Level
- An Exceptional Potential Programme
- Oxbridge preparation group
- Tailored Teaching and Mentoring
- Excellent pastoral care
- Tracking and monitoring to ensure students are on target
Being a member of our sixth form gives you the valuable chance to reach new heights and discover your potential which you may not have known you were capable of hitting.
We emphasise throughout Sixth Form the many benefits of participating in and driving charity and community schemes around Akeley Wood, and many of our students eagerly take up the challenge, volunteering and supporting projects within the local community and nationally. Further afield, students may participate in our hugely popular Volunteer Sri Lanka project, gaining the chance to participate in challenging and rewarding community work overseas.
Empowering our Sixth Form students with new responsibilities, perhaps by sitting on student councils or becoming prefects, heads of school or coaching assistants, serves to build confidence, improve courtesy and crucially, to fine-tune communication skills. Indeed, by the end of Sixth Form, our students have truly found their unique voice, and will be ready to progress into the wider world with a very real sense of identity.
