The Plymstock School Sixth Form
Plymstock School’s sixth form caters for any student who possesses the ability to follow a Level 3/A Level programme and offers a wide variety of subjects that can be studied. The sixth form block offers an exclusive, spacious, well-equipped and well-furnished social environment as a base for Post 16 study.
Plymstock’s popular sixth form attracts students from other schools and has an excellent record of academic achievement, consistently placing the school high up in the official league tables and surveys. Plymstock’s 200+ students are able to study a wide-ranging programme that broadens their education and skills development through other opportunities which include: leisure activities, The Duke of Edinburgh Award, community service, work experience, Tall Ships and the Mock Law Trial, to name but a few. Students also receive a comprehensive programme of careers and higher education guidance.
The Plymstock sixth form plays an important role in setting high standards of work and attitude. Students provide an excellent example to younger members of the school. Staff and students nominate the Head pupils, and their deputies. Sixth Formers also have a measure of control over their own affairs through the Senate – an elected forum of sixth form students. The Senate meets on a weekly basis and is responsible for organising social events, fund-raising activities, sports activities and representing students’ views to the Director of Post 16 Education.
A high proportion of Plymstock students gain university places, and the school has a long record of success at entry to Oxford, Cambridge and Russell Group universities.
Those students who choose not to enter higher education are equally supported. We have a proven track record of students gaining higher level apprenticeships and employment with prestigious companies.
