Sixth Form

Goodwin Academy Sixth Form is a dynamic and innovative place for young people to learn.

We are a Vocational Centre of Excellence, offering a variety of pathways designed to enable learners to progress within their chosen area of specialism. The expertise, support and guidance of the teachers at Goodwin Academy enables students to achieve their full potential and make progress throughout their time with us. The knowledge and resources within our Sixth Form will ensure that students are supported throughout their studies. Students will have the opportunity to achieve well within their chosen pathway, providing them with access to destination of their choosing.

Sixth form students are the leaders of the school. In running our junior leadership team, they are role models for younger students, influencing aspects of school life such as teaching and learning, the environment and diversity. They support learning across the school at all Key Stages.

We also offer excellent pastoral care and guidance. There are many challenges that young people face and our dedicated, and experienced Sixth Form team support our young people through this crucial period in their lives so that they feel safe, nurtured and able to reach their full potential.

Goodwin Academy’s Sixth Form is committed to offering a wide range of courses to suit the needs of all learners. The Vocational Pathways we offer are designed to allow students to focus on an area of interest and follow a recognised Level 3 Study Programme. We offer a variety of very successful Level 3 Diploma qualifications that will be at the heart of the chosen pathway. In addition there are a number of further qualifications to complement the Diplomas, to enable students to study a broad and full curriculum. The pathways we offer will enable learners to progress onto university, or access Higher Level Apprenticeships or employment.

It is our duty to equip young people with the knowledge and skills they need to obtain rewarding and skilled employment in the future, and we believe that our vocational curriculum will enable them to flourish when they leave school. The qualifications on offer allow our students to carve out bright futures with industry links, and our qualifications are designed with the support of universities. They enable students to be fully prepared and ready for the challenges that await them in a fast paced and ever changing world.

We look forward to hearing from you.
