Ten reasons to choose Sawtry Sixth Form


We are very pleased that the Ofsted report from January 2018 stated:

16 to 19 study programmes are OUTSTANDING

The sixth form provides an outstanding education. Achievement overall has been significantly above average for the previous two years. Strong teaching and a very supportive pastoral system are enabling students to follow ambitious career pathways.

  • The leaders of the sixth form, well supported by the senior leadership of the school,
    have high expectations of what they provide for their students. Students are
    overwhelmingly positive about the support they receive from the sixth-form team and
    teachers. The regular feedback they receive is helping students to improve the quality
    of their work, both for coursework and examination questions.
  • When students do fall behind with their studies or show signs of under-performance,
    the sixth-form team is quick to identify the students and offer a package of support,
    which is usually successful. The inspectors saw clear evidence of intervention bringing about a significant improvement in the progress of individual students.

We know a sixth form is more than just results, but we’re pleased to report our 2017 A Level results:

In 2017, our A level students exceeded last year’s results.

100% gained A*-E grades, above last year’s national average. Of these, 57% of students
achieved the top A*-B grades, up 12% from 2016.


These results mean that our students have attained an ALPS score ( A Progress Measure of Key Stage 5 attainment)  of 2, which is graded OUTSTANDING. For more information about ALPS, please see this link
