Welcome to Sixth Form

A warm welcome to our Sixth Form and a description of what the experience looks like.

We are extremely proud of the Sixth Form at Heckmondwike Grammar School. Our students achieve excellent results which allow them access to the most competitive and highly rated University courses, with the majority of students going on to their first choice destination.

As an academic Sixth Form, we offer a wide range of A-Level courses delivered by inspirational teachers. Students are offered the opportunity to immerse themselves fully in the subjects they choose, supported by specialist teachers who understand the transition from GCSE to A Level.

Sixth form life at Heckmondwike Grammar School is about far more than academic progress. With an experienced in-house careers team and flourishing work related learning programme, students are fully supported in making informed decisions about their futures.

Our Sixth form is part of the wider school community, offering leadership opportunities to students through the Senior Committee and prefect system. Sixth form students are encouraged to interact with the main school, and provide a wide range of extra-curricular activities for younger students. Our new sixth form centre will open in summer 2018 providing additional social and study space for Sixth Form students.

The pastoral system operated across the school is second to none, allowing our students to experience the freedom of sixth form life with the support of a dedicated team of form tutors and student support managers.
