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. We nurture students, and that means both academically and socially. We offer 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 on to one UCAS and careers support, as well as unrivalled pastoral care. The majority of our students will attend university which we help with every step of the way, from choosing a course and applying, to interview preparation and finalising choices. 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. Students here do well, and we allow them to develop life skills that will serve them throughout their lives, always pushing them to want and achieve more.
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 experienced and know how to get the very best out of our 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 aim to give each one the guided support and help to give them the very best start to life after school.
Pupils leave here confident, well educated, rounded students, ready for their next adventure, whatever that may be.
