Sixth Form

Here at Tranby, we pride ourselves on the provision we offer in our sixth form. We provide a natural and engaging transition from GCSE to A Level, ensuring all of our students feel safe and happy with the choices they have made. Students are nurtured, both academically and socially, and have the choice of a range of courses from traditional A Level subjects, through to BTEC qualifications. We actively encourage and promote activity outside of the classroom with our Enrichment programme, volunteering, music, drama, art and sports offerings. Students spend the two years with us learning, not just through their subjects, but through leadership opportunities, a focused PSHCE programme and challenges that push themselves outside of their comfort zone. 

Being part of the Sixth From at Tranby opens doors. Doors to opportunity and success through our one to one UCAS and careers support, as well as unrivalled pastoral care. The majority of our students will attend university. From choosing a course and applying, to interview preparation and finalising choices, we support them every step of the way. If it is a Higher Apprenticeship or the world of work that our students wish to go into, we also have a dedicated careers advisor to support these decision and choices. From early years through until their last day of sixth form, we support our students in developing skills that will serve them throughout their lives, always pushing them to aim higher and maximise their potential.  

Class sizes are on average, five students, which equates to a very focused and intimate learning environment. Students are pushed but also made to feel safe and supported, which is vital when tackling A Levels. Our teachers are highly experienced, passionate about the subjects they teach, and know how to get the very best out of students. 

We also offer the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) which is a research based project that parallels to half an A Level. Students choose a topic of their choice and universities have often reduced offers based on a students EPQ, because it teaches them vital skills such as research skills, time management and referencing, amongst many more. Wherever students wish to go and whatever path they wish to take, we always provide guided support and help that propells them as they venture into life after school. 

Pupils leave Tranby as confident, well educated, rounded students, ready for their next adventure, whatever that may be.
