Sixth Form

An 'Outstanding' place to learn

Chipping Norton Sixth Form is an exciting place to begin the next stage of your academic career. Our central aim is to “Enjoy and Achieve”.

In our most recent Ofsted report we were judged to be Outstanding.

Our students go on to a wide variety of Post-18 destinations. This year 80% of students achieved a university place and 48% of these places were at Russell Group universities.

Students have the luxury of their own recently refurbished facilities, allowing them to study independently in a variety of learning environments.

We have a strong sense of community, which provides additional support for students throughout their two years of study. We are very proud of the teaching and learning in Sixth Form and, together with the great number of enrichment opportunities, feel that we provide the perfect place for young people to be successful.

As stated in our most recent Ofsted report: “All students are encouraged and supported to achieve their aspirations”.

*Please note: Entry requirement for psychology is now grade 6, not grade 5
