At Borden we offer a wide range of A-Level qualifications for our students. This range is extended considerably through our partnership with Highsted Grammar and Fulston Manor Sixth Forms to include over 30 different courses. Our aim is to produce students who are confident, responsible and able to take their place in society. This is achieved through matching the skills and interests of the student with correct courses to enable them to achieve their potential.
Borden Grammar admits approximately 120 students to the Sixth Form each year, the majority of whom come from Borden’s present Year 11. However, an increasing number of students join from other grammar schools and high schools in the area. We typically admit between 20-25 students from these local schools each year. Students in the Sixth Form are tutored in a form group made up of Year 12 and Year 13 students which makes the Sixth Form a more dynamic area of the school where students are able to learn and gain experience from one another in an environment supported by an experienced pastoral team.
The Sixth Form are an essential element of Borden Grammar, through prefectship, role models and student mentors. The wide ranges of options beyond the academic provide the Sixth Form with the opportunities to develop their skills and pursue their interests. A first class Learning Resource Centre with a dedicated Sixth Form learning area complete with ICT facilities is available to all Sixth Form students, together with an impressive Sixth Form work room.
If you would like further advice or have any queries or questions then please contact me at the school.
