The Sixth Form at Southam College is a thriving part of the college and the local community. It has a well-established record of high education achievement and offers a wide range of A Level courses which enable students to progress on into Higher Education, employment, or further training.
Since 2013 the Sixth Form has grown from just over 200 students to a large Sixth Form of around 320. This has enabled the school to offer over 30 subjects in the curriculum, including both A Levels and Level 3 Applied General courses. In recent years, over 60% of grades at A level have been awarded at A*-B level.
We are very proud of our sixth form at Southam and students are encouraged to be proud also. Students are encouraged to become responsible and mature individuals within a supportive framework. Students are still a part of the college and therefore there are rules in common: for example, attendance at lessons and tutor time is compulsory and letters/phone calls are required in the case of absence.
To promote student leadership and personal development, there are a large range of different extra-curricular activities and responsibilities students can engage in. These include Head students, a prefect system, wellbeing society, debating and the Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award. Life in Sixth Form is enriching, and all students are expected to participate. Students also are actively encouraged to become involved in the life and work of the rest of the College and to act as role models for younger students, included in activities such as paired reading with Year 7 students.
