Welcome to Longley Park Sixth Form!
About us – and Project You
Longley Park is a specialist Sixth Form offering a wide range of A Levels and BTEC courses at Advanced Level, as well as courses at Level 1 and Level 2. We understand that everyone has their own unique goals and it’s our job to make sure that you achieve yours.
That’s why we talk about Project You – we help you to be the best possible version of yourself. You might be aiming for a place at a top university or planning to train for a career straight away. Whatever you want to achieve, we’ll support you every step of the way. Project You starts now.
What Makes Us Different
As a Sixth Form academy we’re all about providing an amazing place to study. We are big enough to be able to offer a wide choice of courses and additional opportunities, but small enough to feel safe and welcoming. All our students are aged 16-19, so the whole building is designed to support sixth form study. Class sizes are much smaller than you will be used to in school, and everyone in your lessons will have chosen the same subject as you. This means everybody is there to work hard and do well.
Our teachers are all highly qualified specialists in their subjects. As well as post-graduate qualifications, they have links to exam boards and contacts with universities and many have professional experience in careers such as scientific research and nursing. Our teachers are also experts in sixth form education, so they understand how to get the best results. In other words, they know their stuff! And this includes making sure that lessons are inspiring and make you want to learn.
We know that our students are ambitious and our job is to help you achieve your individual goals. We expect you to work hard, but we will also make sure that you get individual advice and support. You will have an Academic Tutor to guide you throughout the year and advise you on what you want to do after Sixth Form.
We want to make sure that Longley Park students have as many advantages as possible when it comes to applying for work, apprenticeships and university places. That’s why we offer lots of opportunities for students to gain real experience that will help you stand out. From work experience and volunteering to help and support getting that vital first part-time job, we will help you to build up your CV during your time at Sixth Form.
Since we opened in 2004, thousands of our students have gone on to study at University, including some of the most prestigious Higher Education destinations in the country. Longley Park students have progressed to Oxford, Cambridge, Kings Sixth Form, Medical and Dental Schools and Goldsmiths College of Art.
The Sixth Form is a place to meet new friends from lots of different backgrounds, and to work with people who share your passion for your chosen subjects. Most importantly it’s a place to take control of your future and make your own decisions. It’s more independent that school, but with lots of advice to help you do your very best.
Learn outside the classroom
Longley Park is an exciting mix of ideas, beliefs, cultures and languages – just like universities, and just like the world. It’s a perfect example of the great ideas that can come to life when we listen to each other, share opinions and work together. We’d love you to join us.
