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 ready for the challenges that lie ahead.
The Sixth Form at Freemen's offers students a first-class education but will also challenge them to think outside of the box. Our students are encouraged to have enquiring minds, to be aware of their place within society and, crucially, given the opportunity to develop into highly-employable young men and women and the leaders of the future.
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. Please see our latest news section for this year's success stories.
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.
Please download the Sixth Form curriculum brochure for courses starting in September 2015.
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. Our sixth formers also take the lead in organising house events and the School’s Charity RAG week.
