Llanwern High School Sixth Form

The Sixth Form at Llanwern High School provides a stimulating, vibrant and friendly setting in which students can continue their academic education beyond GCSE examinations.

The school offers a real breadth of choice of academic provision, complemented by a range of extra-curricular opportunities and facilities in partnership with Caerleon Comprehensive School as part of the Newport East Post 16 Partnership. 

We offer a combination of excellent teaching, academic challenge, sound advice and outstanding pastoral care to ensure students have every opportunity to develop their potential to the full. Each year, we warmly welcome a number of students from other schools into Year 12. The curriculum is structured to allow clear progression, accreditation, considerable personal choice and flexibility.  At the core of our programme for every student is the Welsh Baccalaureate qualification. The Welsh Baccalaureate offers a wide and diverse programme of study that develops independent learning skills required for further education and the workplace. The Welsh Baccalaureate motivates students to pursue personal enthusiasms and interests so they have the opportunity to have the breadth, depth and creativity to their learning whilst, at the same time, maintaining a focus on the essential skills of literacy and numeracy. 

In our Sixth Form, realistic and appropriate course choice is seen as vital to fulfilling academic potential. Each student’s requirements are assessed individually and progress throughout the Sixth Form is carefully monitored and reported to parents/carers regularly.

Why should I stay on at school?

There are advantages to continuing your education, whether in Llanwern High School Sixth Form, or  elsewhere.  

Obviously, you will gain extra qualifications which are needed for you to access courses at universities  and colleges, and employers also look for evidence of education beyond GCSE.  

There are also other benefits to staying on at our school: 

1. You give yourself the time to develop as a person, to become more mature and enhance the social skills necessary for the outside world. 

2. Other skills, such as time management and independent study to demonstrate to  tutors / employers that you’re adaptable and can work using your own initiative. 

3. You know the school and the school knows you! Familiar teachers and surroundings will help you settle in quickly. 

4. The majority of teaching groups are small and run by experienced Sixth Form teachers. Resources are supplied by the teaching areas. 

5. We have a comfortable Common Room, and a Study Room, complete with access to computers, for use only by Sixth Form students.  

6. There is pastoral support to help you through academic or personal problems  

7. You can access help and advice on what to do when you leave the Sixth Form. 

8. We provide you with many opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activities outside the classroom to enrich your time with us.
