The aim of the Sixth Form at Freemen’s is to give our students the confidence to tackle the unknown. Academic excellence is strived for but we recognise the importance of a whole-person education. We will help students to become complete and rounded young men and women who are prepared for the challenges that lie ahead. The Sixth Form at Freemen's will offer students a first-class education but will also challenge them to think outside of the box. Our students will be encouraged to have enquiring minds, to be aware of their place within society and, crucially, they will be given the opportunity to develop into highly-employable young men and women and the leaders of the future.
All Sixth Form students partake in the School’s enrichment curriculum which takes place on a Friday afternoon. Sixth Form students are kept very busy and are given the opportunity to take part all the activities be they sports teams, orchestras, choirs or drama productions. The Sixth Form also takes the lead in organising house events and the School’s Charity RAG week.
The Sixth Form follow a broad and flexible curriculum leading to GCE at AS and A2. In some subjects the Cambridge International Pre-U qualification is also available and runs alongside the A-level curriculum. Results show a 100% pass rate. In 2012 30% of all A-level grades were awarded the top A* grade, and 71% were awarded A* or A. A full Careers programme assists almost all students to move on at the end of the Sixth Form to their first choice degree or other courses, many at major UK universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.
