The Sixth Form at Newall Green High School – A Pathway to Success
Newall Green High School sixth form is a specialist provision aimed at meeting the needs of students who are not yet ready for transition to larger colleges and higher level courses. It's focus is to prepare students for progression onto further education or apprenticeships.
We recognise that not all 16 year olds are ready for a large college or higher level course. They may not be ready for the world of work. Some students still need a high level of support to build confidence and resilience. They need more guidance and help with employability and work related learning skills. Newall Green places a high emphasis on developing these skills and getting students ready for the next stage pathway.
Since it was launched in September 2009, our Sixth Form has gone from strength to strength. We have developed a range of excellent courses, which utilise our outstanding facilities and draw on the expertise of our staff; many with substantial industry experience. We focus on development of basic work related skills and sector learning.
Our Profession Pathways, which in partnership with local businesses and apprentice providers will enhance your skills, develop your knowledge and provide you with a clear route into employment or further training.
Our Profession Pathway consists of:
- A core subject- a level 2 vocational course aimed at a particular sector
- Professional Development and Skills for Employability
- Sector Experience, three one week placements
- A health and well-being programme
- English and Maths GCSE or functional skills for those who have not achieved C or above.
Our Sixth Form is open to external candidates, as well as students moving up from Year 11 at Newall Green High School. Please see our admissions policy for more details or contact the sixth form center on 0161 413 8839
