Becoming a Sixth Form student brings a range of opportunities to achieve, not just academically. Thorp Sixth Form has a real community feel. Both Year 12 and 13 are integrated allowing life long friendships to be forged in the bespoke Sixth Form Centre.

You will have the chance to become a senior student, leading on charity, social and extra-curricular events that help you become well rounded young adults. This is a really exciting time. You are making a series of important choices now that can change your life. You will need dedication and commitment and we will be working with you so that you can make the most of your time with us and the opportunities on offer. We look forward to welcoming you.
