Ten reasons to choose Sawtry Sixth Form


We are very pleased that the Ofsted report from December 2015 stated:

16 to 19 study programmes are good ofsted-good-logo-2
Learners in the academy’s sixth form achieve well. 

Sixth-form teaching has traditionally been a strength because the academy has been able to deploy teachers with strong subject knowledge. Sixth-form teachers and tutors have extensive experience in teaching this age group, and have established high expectations of what learners will achieve. Consequently, they set suitably ambitious targets for learners so that they expect to achieve well and are stretched in their learning.

Learners are positive about the guidance they receive about their next steps. Visits and visiting speakers focus on a range of options, including employment, apprenticeships and further education. The proportions of learners staying on in Years 12 and 13 are high, as are the numbers who progress into higher education.

Provision for learners’ personal development and welfare is good, and is supported by a well-structured personal development programme. Sixth-form learners are very positive ambassadors for the academy and make a good contribution to the rest of the academy. They attend well and are good role models in terms of their attitudes and behaviour to younger pupils.

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
