Why Study Post 16

What you decide to study post-16 can have a major impact on what you do after you leave school.

We believe that the overwhelming majority of young people will benefit greatly from continuing their education in Sixth Form.

Identifying the right path for you is incredibly important. Whether or not you have an idea of the subjects you want to study, having the right information now will give you more options when the time comes to make up your mind.

As you progress through your studies, you are likely to focus on a narrower range of subjects for advanced level qualifications. Information about the courses that we have to offer is available in our prospectus.

In terms of qualifications for university, entry to university is determined mainly on the basis of performance in advanced level qualifications - but grades achieved in your GCSE's may be taken into account. Your grades will also be taken into account for further education and job opportunities. Further qualifications really do help you achieve your goals!

Careers advisors and Sixth Form teachers are available to help students consider all the options available to them.

The key advantages King Edward VI offers are a great range of courses with experienced teachers and tutors who will monitor progress, offer support and encourage students to do their best.
