Where do you want to be in two years time?
At Hedingham Sixth Form the student is at the heart of everything that we do and our core purpose is to help guide them as they prepare for their exams and to help them make decisions about their futures.
At Hedingham we pride ourselves on the opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom that help our students grow academically and also as people. We offer a range of subjects that cater for the differing needs of each student including the traditional A levels as well as the more vocational based BTECs and Cambridge Technicals. We also offer a wide variety of enrichment subjects that most of our Year 12 students will take.
We take great pride in ensuring that all of our students have the support to pursue the next stage of their education or careers. About 50% of our students will go on to study at University, many of which at Russell Group Universities as well as Oxbridge. Our students go on to study a wide range of degrees including Art, Medicine, Law and Film Production. A key part of coming to Hedingham is the support that we offer students with the UCAS process of applying to University. Your personal tutor will be with you at each stage of the process to help make sure that your application is as strong as possible.
For those students who opt to go down the apprenticeship route, you will be supported in searching for the right apprenticeship in writing an excellent CV and application letter as well as interviewing techniques. Students from Hedingham go on to apprenticeships in a range of different fields including Accounting, Design, Engineering and with the Armed Forces.
Outside of the classroom Hedingham students play an active role within the school and wider community. Sixth Form students work as mentors for students in the lower school, helping to support them with aspects of school that they struggle with. You will have the opportunity to tutor GCSE students and to help younger students with their reading. We have an active Sixth Form Council which runs and organises events throughout the year helping to raise thousands of pounds for local charities.
Sixth Form is the most exciting yet challenging time of a student’s educational life and at Hedingham we pride ourselves on supporting each student through this stage of their education.
