Welcome to Wanstead High School Sixth Form
At Wanstead High School we work hard to provide a first class education for our students in a safe, inclusive and caring environment. We were delighted that our A level pass rate for 2016 was 98% with 43% of grades at A*-B. Additionally, we were thrilled that our AS level results for 2016 were our best ever!
In our A Level Performance Score (ALPS) report for 2016, achievement at AS level was graded 5 (Good), and our A level value grade was 5 (Good). Progression from AS to A level was graded as 2 (Outstanding).
We are committed to continually improving and driving standards to achieve excellence. We will look after you, support you and believe in you. In return, we will expect nothing less of you than your very best!
We will meet with you and your parents to ensure that you are studying the correct subjects and are on the right learning pathway. Your GCSE grades are crucial in deciding the choice of subjects or courses that you study. It is important that you achieve at least a Grade C (Grade 4) in Mathematics and English GCSE. If you wish to study A Levels you should aim to achieve Grade B (Grade 6) in Mathematics and English, and your desired A Level subjects.
We offer an exciting range of learning pathways for you to choose from- Level Two (with qualifications equivalent to four GCSEs), and at Level Three BTEC and A level qualifications. We have excellent facilities within our purpose-built Sixth Form block including study areas, a computer suite, common room and canteen. We also have a newly refurbished science department, which provides us with state of the art facilities in our 13 science laboratories. Additionally we have outstanding facilities in Art and Performing Arts including studios, photographic dark room, theatre and rehearsal suites. We believe that investing in good facilities and providing a pleasant working environment enhances students’ learning. Our care for students also extends to our achievement of National Healthy School status.
Throughout your time in the sixth form we will also help you move towards becoming more independent and develop the skills you will need for moving on to higher education, university and the world of work.
Joining our sixth form is not just about academic study; it is also about meeting new friends and becoming actively involved in sixth form life. This includes social and sporting opportunities, becoming an active member of the sixth form council and taking part in our social contract scheme whereby all students aim to support some aspect of community service.
We hope that you find all the information you need within this booklet. Please contact us if you have any questions.
We look forward to receiving your application and having the opportunity to discuss this with you in the near future.
