Sixth Form

Learners’ conduct and attitudes towards learning are admirable, reflecting leaders’ high expectations. Learners communicate very well with staff, showing respect and the utmost courtesy.(Ofsted, 2016)

Our Sixth Form has over two hundred students actively pursuing the highest standards of academic attainment. In recent years the results have been exemplary and this has allowed many of the students to go on to study at further education institutions all over the UK. Ofsted have recognised just how successful the Head of Sixth Form has been in raising standards and attainment.

Happy, secure and challenged students are the keys to academic success. Our excellent reputation is built on high standards of achievement, work, commitment, good behaviour, dress, attendance and involvement in school life. Our outstanding ethos, identified by Ofsted in 2014, is shaped by our Catholic faith. Cardinal Hume said, “A Catholic School should be a witness to society and practise what it preaches.” We endeavour to that every day. We are proud that so many of our young men and women are acknowledged by the wider community to be upstanding citizens, exemplary in their behaviour and committed to serving others. At St Ignatius College we aim to ensure your son or daughter will be successful, happy and fulfilled during their time in the Sixth form. We strive to provide a first class education and our pledge to you is that we will work in partnership – school, parent, your child– to make sure that it happens.
