Sixth Form

The Coleshill Sixth Form’s aim is to foster a vibrant, supportive and happy sixth form community in which each student is encouraged to develop a wide range of intellectual, cultural and recreational interests, to strive for excellence in fulfilling their potential and to develop a sense of independence and social and moral responsibility in preparation for the roles they will play in the wider community of the 21st century.

We operate in a purposeful, friendly and adult environment in which students are encouraged to develop a sense of independence and take responsibility for their study; this can perhaps best be described as ‘challenge with support’. The two years in the Sixth Form are important in shaping your future career and education and will also, we hope, be remembered as an exciting and enjoyable experience.

The Coleshill School offers students a chance to continue developing the skills and attitudes that are required later in life. It provides opportunities for extra – curricular and community interests and students are given every encouragement to be leaders in the school  through our unique Leadership Award.

Above all the Sixth Form is about helping you realise your potential whatever it is. We want our Sixth Formers to be successful and happy whether this is success in university entrance, in your chosen career or in developing your wider potential. We also want our Sixth Formers to be considerate and responsible members of a happy and thriving community.
