Academic Work

Every student in the Sixth Form is seeking to improve their academic qualifications. We aim to offer a challenging and varied curriculum that allows students to achieve their potential.

Whilst we recognise the importance of allowing students opportunities to be responsible for an appropriate proportion of their own time, we ensure that students do not fall behind with their work. All Year 12 students have supported private study time in specially designed areas. The Learning Resources Centre is also available to Sixth Form students.

St. Mark’s Sixth Form values rigorous target-setting. From the first week students are informed of their target grades.

Our aim is to develop independent learners with transferable skills, capable of adapting to future academic and work-based challenges. Yet we firmly believe in the need for structure and support to facilitate academic success.

We seek to involve parents in supporting their child’s work and welcome contact from parents. We believe that partnership between parent and school extends into the Sixth Form and seek to keep parents informed through regular reports and one scheduled Parents’ Evening.
