Key Stage 5 (Sixth Form)

Our Sixth Form is a vibrant part of our school. Students have a positive and mature attitude to their learning.  They have excellent personal and social skills, which they put to good use when working with younger pupils in the school. 

Estyn inspectors described the school’s carefully planned approach to preparing Sixth Form pupils for application to Higher Education as ‘particularly successful’.

The balance of subjects available to you has been carefully considered and provides you with the opportunity to extend your academic qualifications. The teaching methods are varied and we strive to actively engage and motivate our learners.  In order to increase the number and variety of courses on offer, some subjects will also be offered in liaison with the Cynon Valley Consortium, at Aberdare Community School or Mountain Ash Comprehensive School.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to play an active role in school life and become involved in charity events and extra-curricular activities. This school has a strong Christian ethos and we aim to develop the spiritual and moral growth of each student. You will also have the opportunity of becoming a prefect and, in Year 13, part of the Senior Prefect Team, which can provide valuable experience in a leadership role.
