Staying on at a School & Attending Sixth Form
All over the country there are schools with their own sixth forms offering courses which are designed to follow on from GCSEs.
Most sixth forms will have a small range of courses available, unlike an FE college, which will have a much wider choice of subjects and levels.
A sixth form learning environment is often a lot like school with a uniform policy and calling teachers ‘Mr’ and ‘Miss’. However there will still be some emphasis put on independence and maturity.
A sixth form timetable will normally follow that of a school with independent study sessions put in throughout the week.
