The Holy Cross School Sixth Form is a dynamic and vibrant place to study at post 16, within an inclusive and supportive Catholic community. Over the two years with us, we aim to develop our young people into confident, articulate and independent young adults with the leadership skills and work ethic to thrive in higher education and employment.

For over 30 successful years we have worked in partnership with Richard Challoner School offering an extensive, varied and exciting programme of study and providing a curriculum which can be tailored to the individual student’s need. Selecting the right combination of the many courses available is vital to achieving academic success and gaining qualifications which will open doors to future pathways.

Together with academic success, a combination of high quality teaching and positive staff-student relationships lies at the core of our provision and this is complemented by a pastoral programme which supports the students’ personal, social and emotional development. A dedicated and experienced University and Careers Adviser is available to assist and support students in their choices for higher education and career programmes. Working closely with tutors, each student receives 1-1 guidance with their university or employment applications.

The Sixth Form regard themselves as role models for students in the rest of the school and the academic and life skills that they develop at this age will build a real foundation for their success in the future.

We look forward to welcoming you at our annual Sixth Form Open Evening held in the Autumn Term or you may wish to make an appointment to come and visit us on a normal school day.
