The transition from year 11 to post 16 study marks an important new stage in your school career. You have the opportunity to choose three or four subjects to study which are closely matched to your interests, and which you will enjoy. You will work increasingly independently, and will be given responsibility to manage your studies within a supportive and strong community. You will be able to research or develop a project which will demonstrate your depth of thinking and gain credit for a range of employability skills.
Alongside the challenge of studying to the highest level, we believe it is important for students to develop personally through their post 16 study. In employment we are judged both on quality and on character. We want students to understand what it means to produce work of excellence, but to do so whilst supporting others and developing strong leadership skills. Our Sixth Form students are all involved in working with younger students as part of their programme. As a member of the Tove Learning Trust, we are working increasingly closely with Sponne School in Towcester, to further develop our students' learning experience.
Elizabeth Woodville School is proud of its Sixth Form provision. On the following pages you will find out how to apply for a place in the Sixth Form and how we support students throughout their journey towards either a university place or an apprenticeship and/or entry into the world of work.
Information on financial support is also detailed. Our outstanding enrichment opportunities, together with the opportunities for leadership development and the views of our students are also included.
The world beyond year 11 is full of possibilities. There is no single map to identify the best path for all students. We hope this guide will give you useful information to mark a path for your future success, and that you will choose to study at EWS in years 12 and 13. If at any point you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. You will find our contact details at the foot of each page.
