Welcome to the Sixth Form
The Sixth Form at Wembley High is very successful. We offer a full range of academic courses at AS and A Level, taught by highly qualified, expert staff.
We are proud to welcome you to Wembley High Sixth Form. Wembley High is an outstanding non-selective academy with 300 students in the Sixth Form. Our commitment is to ensure that every student leaves us prepared to thrive in higher education and lead successful lives. We are extremely proud of our students' success and in 2020, over 60% of students secured places at Russell Group universities, including Cambridge, The LSE, UCL, Warwick, King’s College London, Bath and Bristol to study a wide range of courses including medicine, law, engineering and economics.
Students can choose from a wide range of AS and A level subjects to study over two years. Most students study four subjects at AS level in Year 12 and specialise in three subjects for the full A level in Year 13. We provide outstanding teaching staff of the highest academic calibre to teach, guide and support students for life long success and to ensure the highest levels of achievements in their exams; last year in 2020, 78% of all exams were awarded A* - B grades.
Students are rigorously prepared as young professionals for university and graduate careers. Every student has a tutor, who in addition to providing pastoral support, provides one-two-one support with the UCAS process. We provide personalised academic and pastoral interventions and encourage students to undertake their own independent academic research projects. Our students have access to a dedicated careers team and a wealth of enrichment opportunities. We also work to develop the outstanding communication and leadership skills needed by students for success in all areas of their future lives.
Study takes place in a modern learning environment in the Sixth Form Learning Centre. Students benefit from having modern state-of-the-art classrooms and study areas for their exclusive use, equipped with learning facilities and resources to support their study and independent research in a professional environment. Sixth Form students are encouraged to participate fully in Sixth Form life and play an active role in the College and wider community. Students have the opportunity to sit on the Sixth Form Council, be a Subject Ambassador, a Senior Prefect or hold other responsibility positions and are positive role models to younger students.
A variety of enrichment opportunities are offered in the Sixth Form and feature strongly in Sixth Form life. These include several long-term programmes linked with outside organisations and leading universities, events involving the development of team-building and problem-solving skills, academic projects and competitions and extra-curricular societies and study groups. We have strong relationships with Oxford, Cambridge, the LSE, and Imperial College London and strong links with businesses and organisations in the workplace to provide our pupils with an all-round experience to prepare them for their next steps in their education.
