I am very proud to lead United College Sixth Form (UCSF). The Sixth Form is the pinnacle of our mission at the Academy to empower students to aim high and reach their Bright Futures.
We have designed the curriculum so that our students are provided with the environment, ethos and opportunities to develop high performing skills and qualities. This enables them to go onto the next stage of their life as confident and competent individuals.
We understand that it can be daunting moving from GCSE into A Levels, so we offer an exceptional level of support to keep you on track: both in terms of academic direction and study skills support, but we also prioritise our students’ wellbeing. UCSF has a big family feel; everyone gets together in the dedicated Sixth Form centre. Within the centre, students have their own library, study rooms and ICT facilities. There is also a common room for the students to meet, work togetherand relax.
As well as a strong focus on their academic work, we encourage all UCSF students to be fully involved in the life of the Academy. Our Sixth Formers play an important role as leaders and role models to the younger years. We have a large student leadership team run by the Students Presidents. Roles within the team involve leading on student wellbeing, running charity and cultural events, academic mentors and much more. As well as contributing to the wider community these opportunities encourage the development of those skills which universities and employers tell us they are looking for.
Being a student here is an exhilarating and rewarding experience which will equip you to take those next steps. We look forward to welcoming you and supporting you on your journey to a Bright future.
