Sixth Form Welcome
Green Spring Sixth Form Shoreditch, continues the academic excellence we are so widely recognised for in the main academy at Key Stage 5 with 99.7% of students securing passes in 2016. Our approach to post-16 education is unique, offering a bespoke curriculum depending on the needs of each student. Students can choose from three pathways; Discovery, Endeavour and Enterprise.
These each offer different subjects across A Level and Level 3 BTEC qualifications, allowing students to tailor their education and choose the best options for their future. Those taking A Level courses will select four subjects and BTEC students will take one course, alongside the option to take an AS Level subject. In addition to the academic curriculum, sixth formers have access to an array of personal development opportunities, including mentoring, volunteering, leadership, sports and other enrichment programmes.
The recently refurbished Sixth Form Centre offers a more independent learning environment, with a specialised study area, which is fully equipped with modern IT resources. Students are actively encouraged to arrive early and make use of these facilities, developing their skills as independent learners and preparing them for the expectations of higher education.
A dedicated sixth form team is always on hand to ensure that students are progressing as expected and receive the appropriate support. Guidance programmes are in place to help them progress beyond sixth form – whether that means: university, an apprenticeship or going straight into the world of work. Our extensive network of partnerships means that GSAS sixth form students have access to industry mentors, skills development workshops and interaction with top universities. No matter what their future path, every young person is catered for at Green Spring Academy Shoreditch Sixth Form.
