Ethos and Values

Longley Park Sixth Form has high expectations for all young people and is driven by a commitment to see that all its young people will achieve, flourish and progress. We are ambitious for our students and believe that these ambitions are achievable. By raising aspirations and developing our students’ confidence and self-belief, they achieve and progress. During their time with us, we offer our young people

  • a challenging, motivating and inspirational learning experience which develops skills, knowledge, understanding and positive study habits
  • a personalised package of support to help identify, plan and achieve their next steps

The curriculum at Longley Park Sixth Form has been specifically designed to be accessible to all. We offer a learning experience that meets the needs of all students including the most able, those with low prior attainment, young people from areas of high disadvantage, young people for whom English is a second or additional language, those with complex needs, and students previously not in education.

  • improve the English and maths skills of all learners to support their main programmes and progression to further study and employment
  • re-engage young people previously not in education and/or at risk of becoming NEET through programmes that develop their skills and confidence, and outstanding support to help them to meet high expectations
  • develop students as confident and curious learners with increasing levels of independence
  • allow students to develop the skills, knowledge and attributes to succeed in Higher Education and/or employment
  • provide rich experiences to develop students’ cultural capital
  • equip students to play a full role as citizens in modern Britain
