A brief word from the Deputy Headteacher...
Becoming a Sixth Form student in a school is very special. You are the senior pupils in the school and as such receive privileges of dress, access to facilities and freedom of movement. Most importantly there is continuity of learning by specialist teachers who know you well and are therefore well placed to ease the transition from GCSE to Advanced Level Study. Their prime concern is your personal welfare and the successful completion of your studies. Hard work will be essential but you will receive excellent tuition and pastoral support.
Heckmondwike Grammar School has a long tradition of preparing students for university and our Sixth Form courses are therefore primarily academic with most students following 4 or 5 AS level subjects together with an additional subject from the General Programme.
Complementing your academic studies will be a wealth of activities which will enable you to grow in maturity and social responsibility. They will help to develop initiative, independence, leadership and organisational skills, all of which will be extremely useful when applying to university or for employment.
As a member of the Sixth Form you will be valued and encouraged to thrive within a caring, supportive community. You will have excellent opportunities for academic, social and personal development andI am sure you will have an enjoyable and successful Sixth Form career at Heckmondwike.
