Sixth Form

The majority of Emmanuel students stay with us from 11 to 18 with a small intake coming directly into the Emmanuel Sixth Form.  Here at Emmanuel our aim is to help young men and women achieve their academic best and develop character to make a positive difference in the world they live in as they become leaders of the future.

Probably the best preparation for adulthood is to do hard things.  The Emmanuel Sixth Form will certainly push you out of your comfort zone.  Academically we focus on traditional, facilitating A levels which are still the ‘gold standard’ for universities and employers. Every student in the sixth form will be challenged to serve others in a leadership role and this may be in leading a choir, coaching or mentoring younger students or working with orphans in Africa.

If you are in year 11 and feel excited at the thought of taking on the Sixth Form challenge then we would love to work with you.  Places are limited and competition strong so talk to your teachers about what would be the best route for you into further study.  If you are not currently an Emmanuel student look carefully at the sixth form prospectus and contact the College to find out more information.

Studies follow a variety of courses embracing a wide range of A Level and appropriate vocational courses.  Students following A Level programmes will take AS Module Examinations at the end of Year 12 and A2 Module Examinations at the end of Year 13.
