Welcome from Gemma Fassam- Head of Sixth Form

Welcome to a new and exciting chapter in your life with the beginning of a great new experience which will help you discover more about who you are and what you can achieve as a unique, talented person. The next stage of your education will transform your life.  You will want to take on new challenges and, here at Uckfield, we have outstanding opportunities to learn and develop as an individual.

As the largest Sixth form college in the local area, we have broad provision at Key Stage 5, including a wide range of A-level and BTEC Level 2 and 3 choices. Students are guided to make appropriate choices based on their performance at GCSE and in discussion with members of the Sixth Form leadership team. Teaching time allocated to each subject is either four or five  lessons per week for A-level and BTEC subjects.  Students are also allocated discrete study support time on their timetables, which takes place in our newly refurbished Sixth Form Study Area.  This is silent time for individual work and supports students in making the transition from Key Stage 4 to Key Stage 5 effectively.  [Read our Prospectus]

Our 6th Form team will equip you to be the best you can by: helping you to achieve your best possible results; enabling your leadership to develop; giving you opportunities to have fun and grow as an individual; providing excellent careers guidance and by advising you on university and job applications.
