Highfields Sixth Form

We are delighted to welcome prospective students & their parents/carers to our Sixth Form Open Evening, which will take place  from 5.30pm-8pm on 17th November. 

Making your decision about Post 16 education is very important.   We believe that every student can excel on courses that are appropriate to them and this is reflected in our wide range of option choices.  There are several pathways that you may decide between in our Sixth Form, studying Advanced Level courses, BTEC subjects or in some instances combining the two.

Highfields Sixth Form is exciting and challenging.  We have a reputation for providing quality teaching. Our ethos is about having high expectations within a supportive and friendly environment.

"From my experience, the Sixth Form at Highfields provides engaging lessons, a high standard of teaching and the push needed to succeed. Students are incredibly driven and hardworking, but there is also a really friendly and supportive atmosphere within this fantastic modern learning environment." - Owen Staveniter, Head Boy

"From the strong sense of community, to the excellent teaching, Highfields Sixth Form has supported me throughout my learning. Here at Highfields, there is always someone I can turn to for help and that is one of the reasons why I believe this Sixth Form provides a fantastic diverse, comfortable and reassuring working environment." - Navneet Marway

"I believe that Highfields Sixth Form is a diverse and encouraging place, where I feel I am always well guided and encouraged to achieve my full potential. Highfields has thoroughly prepared me for my future by ensuring I have always had the correct support in place, and I always know where to turn if I need any help." - Molly Jervis

"Highfields is a school which encourages diversity and cohesion in order to form a strong learning network. All staff members are hugely supportive and are always willing to go above and beyond when it comes to helping students both inside and out of the classroom." - Alicia Hill

"At Highfields you are encouraged to be your own individual, and students are given the opportunity to express themselves and become involved in numerous enrichment activities, something which I believe is hugely important in someone’s education. I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to start the debate club, something which has been a huge part of my life at Highfields. I believe I have strongly developed within the Sixth Form and I hope will continue in the future after I have left for university.’ -Kainat Pervaiz
