The Head of Sixth Form

Welcome to The Howard School Sixth Form and thank you for considering us as your school for the next two years of your education.

We are a very ‘Good’ school, with a vast range of courses on offer at Level 3 to meet the needs and aspirations of all learners, and a specialism in Sports. We are able to offer 18 Academic courses and 9 Applied General courses at Level 3, providing an extensive offer that few other schools can match. At The Howard School we pride ourselves in all aspects of student’s education, not just academic outcomes but also through the extensive pastoral and enrichment programme that we offer. As a sixth form member you will receive a Progress Tutor, a comprehensive mentoring programme and have access to a vast range of enrichment opportunities. These opportunities include foreign visits, work experience, becoming a senior prefect and studying for the Extended Project Qualification, to name but a few. Ultimately, whether you are a student looking to go onto university, an apprenticeship or employ- ment, we have the expertise and experience to guide you every step of the way. Our on-site careers adviser will be able to guide you through the process of applying for apprenticeships, arranging work experience and supporting you with the job application process, whilst our experienced Sixth Form team and partnership links with local universities will guide you through the UCAS process for a smooth transition to university. We believe that The Howard School offers students the opportunity to create a timetable that meets their needs, interests and aspirations for the future, in an environment that nurtures, encourages and delivers.
