Our Sixth form

"Thank you for your interest in the Sixth Form at The Norton Knatchbull School.

Sixth Form is an exciting time. Choosing the right path at post-16 level is one of the most important decisions you will make in your school career. The options you decide to follow now will determine the avenues open to you later. We are here to help you make the right choices and to ensure that you are successful. We pride ourselves on our friendly, welcoming community and we are confident that our Sixth Form will provide you with a vibrant and challenging environment in which you can flourish as an individual.

We offer a multitude of ways in which to build on GCSE successes and specialise in curriculum areas that inspire lifelong interest, learning and careers. There is an expectation that you will aim high and take advantage of the many and varied opportunities in the school to further develop the key qualities of reasoning, reflection, resilience, resourcefulness, respect and responsibility.

As a member of our Sixth Form you will act as a role model for our younger students, leading, inspiring and supporting them, whilst also pursuing your own academic and personal goals. We strongly believe that the experience of being a member of our Sixth Form will enable you to take the next steps in your career with confidence, initiative and maturity.

I look forward to welcoming you to the Sixth Form at The Norton Knatchbull School."
