Message from Director of Sixth Form
Whether you are a current student at Alderbrook or one of the many external students who choose to join the school in the Sixth Form, it gives me great pleasure to introduce our Sixth Form to you. The next two years will be some of the most exciting of your academic journey. Filled with new challenges, subjects, staff and hopefully new friends too, here at Alderbrook we aim to nurture these precious years and help you take your final steps into adulthood with confidence.
We offer a fantastic range of subjects at A Level here at Alderbrook; however, our programme is designed to equip you with more than just good grades. For you to succeed beyond the school environment you will need to demonstrate independence, confidence and determination. We want to ensure you are given every support in planning your chosen route past Sixth Form education, whether it is to university, an apprenticeship or full time employment.
You will be part of an extremely exciting, friendly and happy learning community at Alderbrook School as one of 250 intelligent and articulate young adults. We boast smaller than average class sizes and this means we can focus on you as an individual. We can offer you more time and support. You will be studying in an environment where staff care about your personal development and your academic progress and there is strong pastoral support.
Thank you for considering Alderbrook as your Sixth Form. We believe that in choosing to study with us you will be making the right choice. Although we are sure that you will find the enclosed information provided very helpful, should you still have a question, then please do get in touch.
We look forward to welcoming you into the Sixth Form.
Mrs Anna CJ Allen
Director of Sixth Form
What our students say
“The Sixth Form teachers at Alderbrook go above and beyond to help their students be successful. As I look forward to year 13, I know it will be just as exciting and challenging and I’m eager to see what other new opportunities lay ahead. All I hope is that it doesn’t go too fast!”
Beatrice Castle - Head Girl, Alderbrook Sixth Form
“For me, Alderbrook Sixth Form is not only a fantastic place to learn, it’s also an amazing environment to be part of.”
James Hunter - Head Boy, Alderbrook Sixth Form
“I joined the Sixth Form as an external student in 2016. I was standing where you are today, a year ago. I settled in really quickly and have never looked back. I’m very happy, the teachers are great and I’m really enjoying all my courses.”
George Smith - Deputy Head Boy, Alderbrook Sixth Form
“At post 16 I attended Alderbrook School’s Drama Department. The course was really challenging and very successful. Between the great facilities, inspirational teaching and engaging lessons, I was equipped not only with the skills I needed to continue my training afterwards, but the motivation to succeed as an actor”.
Josh Johnson - Graduate BA (Hons) Acting, Birmingham School of Acting 2014
