The Sixth Form

Haverhill Community Sixth Form is a successful, student led post 16 provider. Its aims are simple; to ensure that students are academically successful, that they continue to build the confidence, skills and intellectual rigour needed to be able to shape their own future and that they further develop their own strong set of moral values.

We offer a broad range of courses and subjects (including Maths, Sciences, History, Languages, Geography, Psychology, Sociology, Art, Media, Drama, Product Design and Sport) at Level 3 that we think offer students excellent routes to university, apprenticeship or employment within the framework of a successful and supportive community. Students that have studied with us have gone on to study a variety of degrees at university, including at a number of Russell Group institutions.
We know students are all individuals and need different support and resources in order to succeed. In our newly refurbished study block Sixth Form students enjoy exclusive use of an ICT suite and a range of dedicated study spaces. Whether you like to study in silence, in a quiet room, in a group or in the Sixth Form cafe with your friends, we have the facilities and support you need. With a new £10 million building opening for September 2019 you’ll find your classrooms are also the best around.

The Sixth Form at HC6 will continue to grow, adapt and develop to ensure that our students get the best possible outcomes from their time with us and that they have ‘the edge’ on students from other providers.

Our Vision Statement:

Welcome to Haverhill Community Sixth Form, where our aim is to deliver outstanding provision in a school-based setting and to ensure the highest academic success for all our students. We provide the best of both worlds: the independence and flexibility you would expect in a college with the support, guidance and high-quality teaching you would expect of a great school. We focus on developing the independence, adaptability and resilience you will need for the future, whether you are entering University, going into employment or undertaking high quality training courses. As the Head of Sixth Form I am delighted to lead the team which will ensure the future success of students from Haverhill and beyond. Whether you attend Samuel Ward Academy, Castle Manor Academy or study further afield, we know you can thrive as part of our community. Our Sixth Form team of tutors and specialist teachers take pride in offering pastoral and academic care of the highest quality and we use a wide range of interventions should there be any concern around your wellbeing or academic progress. You will have many opportunities at Haverhill Community Sixth Form; perhaps you will be elected to one of our leadership positions, support younger students, raise money for charities and organise and run community events. Choosing a Sixth Form requires consideration but our track record of excellent provision has always ensured students are well prepared to take on the challenges of the 21st Century.
