Welcome to The Blandford School Sixth Form
All students who join our Sixth Form are making a positive choice in terms of their future career. Our focus is very much on raising students’ aspirations, and adding value and breadth to their experience to ensure that they achieve their potential.
Whether you aspire to a vocational training programme or to an Oxbridge University place we will support you along your chosen path and equip you with the right skills to support your decision and application.
We have highly qualified staff with a proven track record in providing up to date and quality guidance to every individual and excellent links with a range of specialist external organisations, Higher Education Institutions and local employers.
If you would like to visit the Sixth Form for an experience day please contact us to arrange this.
The Sixth Form offers an opportunity for increased independence and students are now enjoying our especially designed facilities. A designated Sixth Form area launched in 2011 and was largely designed by students themselves. It provides a modern, light and welcoming environment with dedicated study and computer facilities and a comfy seating area which also proves popular during recreational periods.
The nearby ‘Index’ offers additional easy access to ICT whilst supplying a wide range of literature and resources selected to support advanced level programmes.
Some students also choose to study in the ‘Hub’ or on the terrace where they can participate in learning groups or plan charity or council initiatives over a cup of coffee ‘refectory-style’, meet teachers to review an assignment or equally find a quiet corner to work on an individual task.
Sixth Form assemblies are led by staff and a range of external speakers support our varied tutorial provision.
Faculties also offer a range of state of the art facilities centred on the Post -16 curriculum and will be pleased to introduce you to these during our open evening or by appointment.
