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.

The nearby Library 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.

URGENT Action to take if there is a positive Covid-19 test in your household over the Easter holiday

Dear Parent/Carer

 

Action to take if there is a positive Covid-19 test in your household over the Easter period

The latest Government advice is as follows:  where a student or staff member tests positive for coronavirus having developed symptoms more than 48 hours since being in school, the school should NOT be contacted.  Parents and carers should follow contact tracing instructions provided by NHS Test and Trace.

If a student tests positive up to and including Wednesday, 7th April you must contact the school’s emergency number

07857 113728

Please provide the following information:

Name and year group of the student who has tested positive

Date of positive test

Date symptoms developed

Date student was last in school

Names of friends/contacts during school break and lunchtimes

The school will identify and contact families of close contacts during any lessons and tutor periods, and also families of any known social contacts provided by you.

Please leave your own contact details, including email and telephone number.

You do not need to contact the school if a member of your household tests positive, but you should follow the advice of NHS Test and Trace in terms of isolation required within your household.

I would like to thank the entire school community for your support and co-operation during this unusual and difficult half-term.

With best wishes for a restful half-term break,

Sally Wilson

Headteacher
