I am very proud of Wickersley Sixth Form and what our students achieve each year.

Our A and A* results were better this year than ever before and our average grade for our vocational subjects was a Distinction *.

As a sixth form our cohort size is growing with almost 500 students studying with us this year. There are more students than ever studying a mixture of A level and BTEC subjects. We are a very inclusive sixth form with an entry requirement of 5 A*-C or equivalent (4 in Maths and English).

The inclusive and supportive sixth form enables students to thrive and achieve highly. There is a strong trend of improvement in the proportion of students gaining the grades A* to B and the number of students successfully gaining places at one of the Russell group of universities is increasing year on year”.

Our students achieve very well and last year 85% of our Year 13 students successfully progressed onto their first choice of University. 22% of our students attended Russell group Universities, well above the 10% south Yorkshire average.

As with GCSEs there have been a lot of changes happening at Key Stage 5 and A levels have fewer resit opportunities. Two years ago students could take Summer and January exams, whereas last year students could only take exams in the Summer season of Year 12 and 13.  This picture is changing again for the year ahead where many of our current Year 13 students will study linear exams with only the final exams in Year 13 counting towards their final grade.
