Sixth Form Education

The Spencer Academies Trust offers sixth form provision across our catchment areas in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, with results at least in line with, and in many cases,  consistently above national averages.

Our sixth forms are smaller than independent sixth form colleges, and are therefore able to deliver learning tailored to the student. Help is always available from our dedicated student support teams, and students have opportunities throughout the year to meet one-on-one and review progress.

Spencer Academies sixth forms offer:

  • An academic focus, encouraging students to be independent learners
  • A supportive and sociable environment, in which students are able to build on strong KS4 and in-school foundations
  • Personal guidance and support, preparing students to succeed during an academically testing and high stress time
  • Support to help students make the right career choice – whether university, employment opportunities or technical qualifications including higher level apprenticeships
  • Links with local employers and industry, creating tailored work placement experiences and opportunity for students
  • More than 95% of students accessing the onward training, study or employment opportunity of their choice
