6th Form

I am delighted to welcome you to the Magna Academy Sixth Form section of our site. I hope you find it informative. However, rather than just reading the site information, I would encourage you to visit the Academy to see our top class facilities and to discuss course requirements in more detail.

Your choice of Sixth Form is a crucial one, for whatever path you choose in the future; university, training or employment. In a tough, competitive market, it is essential that you stand out from the crowd with the best possible grades and personal development record.

Our philosophy is that a combination of high standards and expectations, combined with aspirational targets, brings the maximum levels of performance and success. Our Sixth Form prides itself on exceptional standards of learning, attitudes, respect, dress and behaviour. We expect the very highest standards in all areas from our students, with them actively contributing to our Academy community, adopting positions of leadership and responsibility across the Academy, and representing the very best of what Magna Academy has to offer.

Our outstanding June 2015 OFSTED inspection report was a fitting testament to the tremendous hard work of our staff, governors, students and parents/carers. We are all exceptionally proud of this fantastic outcome for both Magna and the local community.

We are particularly proud of the way OFSTED describes our students, stating that they are exceptionally keen to learn, make exceptional progress, are polite to adults and to each other, are very tolerant of differences and that their behaviour is outstanding. The Sixth Form received considerable praise and a judgement of outstanding. Teaching in the Sixth Form was described as ‘superb’ and the students themselves as ‘a great credit to the academy.’

The 2015 BTEC Level 3 results achieved by our Sixth Formers placed Magna Academy in the top 1% of schools/colleges nationally for value added, representing exceptional performance. We are looking to replicate this performance with our newly introduced A Level subjects.

We successfully prepare young people to have a competitive edge in the 21st Century workplace. We pride ourselves on understanding the exacting demands that are placed on young people in an increasingly competitive world. We work hard to ensure that they are able to demonstrate 21st Century skills: digital literacy, entrepreneurialism, creativity, productivity and high levels of communication skills.

Most of all, we offer young people the opportunity to excel.

Thank you for considering Magna Academy Sixth Form. We hope that you will decide that it is the right choice for you and look forward to welcoming you to our Sixth Form community.
