Welcome

Welcome to the Glyn Sixth Form website. Whether you are an existing or prospective student, parent or carer, this section of the school website will provide you with a wealth of practical information and an overview of our ethos.

The Post-16 journey is extremely important and we are proud to provide our students with an exceptionally comprehensive provision that caters for students of all abilities. We work hard to ensure that the time spent in Years 12 and 13 is not only academically challenging, but also richly rewarding and highly enjoyable. We are also fortunate to benefit from outstanding parental support and this ensures that communication between home and school is frequent and effective.

We offer a stimulating curriculum, with a broad choice of courses providing both academic and vocational pathways. Although our Sixth Formers demonstrate increasing maturity and independence in their studies, we continue to provide the strong pastoral care that we believe underpins their success. This includes a comprehensive programme of support for entry to university, an apprenticeship or employment, tailored to the needs of the individual student. As well as a high standard of teaching, Glyn provides Sixth Form students with a wealth of opportunities beyond the classroom that help to develop the well-rounded character that is so highly prized by universities and employers alike. Sixth Formers are an integral part of our school community, acting as excellent role models for younger students and great ambassadors for Glyn.

We are proud of the fact that our Sixth Form is mixed, with just under a third of our intake consisting of girls. We are conscious that joining a predominantly boys' school can be daunting for our new female students and we go to great lengths to ensure that all of our students feel safe and enjoy their time at Glyn.

In May 2014, the school unveiled its brand new Sixth Form facilities, located in The Chaloner Building, and consisting of 18 classrooms, a large Common Room with Cafeteria, as well as a Private Study equipped with over 60 computers, both used exclusively by Sixth Formers.

We are delighted with our Summer 2018 A Level results showing that our students made progress significantly above the national average. Behind the headline figures lie many individual success stories and it is always an immense pleasure for staff to witness students enjoy the success they deserve. From our outgoing Year 13 cohort, 197 students gained a university place, including 65 in Russell Group universities and 3 in Oxbridge universities. In addition, 71 students secured an apprenticeship.

We are always looking for feedback and ways to improve our Sixth Form so if you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me or any member of the Sixth Form Leadership Team.

Assistant Headteacher
