Welcome to Aspire Sixth.
Our sixth form offers students from Cheslyn Hay, Great Wyrley and the surrounding area the chance to benefit from the excellent teaching upon which the school prides itself in a vibrant environment that encourages academic achievement and social development.
Every September, we are delighted to welcome Year 11 students from both home schools and students from other schools into Aspire Sixth. We provide a supportive and challenging environment in which students can flourish. We are a thriving, friendly and supportive community. Our facilities are first class, backed up by excellent teachers and subject specialists who are totally committed to ensuring that they get the best from their students.
We begin each year with an intensive induction, and our focus is on maximum academic achievement, combined with a wide range of extra-curricular, leadership and social activities. A key feature of our sixth form is the extension of our collaboration between student, parent and school, which we know is the foundation for success. Our assessment and reporting schedule is designed to keep parents fully informed and in touch with all aspects of student progress.
The majority of our students move on to study at university. Their chosen degree courses are wide ranging, including medicine, law, science, and the performing arts. Students are also supported to secure positions in employment or apprenticeships.
Life at Aspire Sixth is not solely about academic success; it is also about developing as a person. Extra-curricular activities and leadership roles, alongside a comprehensive tutorial and enrichment programme including work experience, sports leadership, mentoring programs, TEFL course and the extended project qualification, enable our students to become well-rounded and confident individuals.
I hope our website will give you a flavour of life at our sixth form, and I very much look forward to meeting you and sharing the fantastic range of opportunities available to our students.
