Head of Sixth Form's Welcome

​I am delighted to welcome you to Northallerton School & Sixth Form College confident that whatever the abilities and talents of your child we will be able to nurture, support, encourage and challenge them to achieve their full potential.

We are very proud of our sixth form. Our students are happy, challenged to achieve beyond expectations and consistently achieve well, leaving the sixth form prepared for the next stage in Higher Education or employment. Our destination data speaks for itself, with 90% of students securing places at their first choice university, including Oxbridge and other Russell Group universities.

Our sixth form is inclusive and our curriculum offer reflects this. Most of our students follow an academic A level route, while others prefer a vocational approach which includes some coursework based assessment. Our teachers are very experienced at teaching sixth form students and we know our students well. Our class sizes enable staff to effectively support our students, who tell us that they really appreciate the positive learning environment created in our sixth form and the strong pastoral guidance and mentoring they receive.

In addition to studying there are many other exciting opportunities to get involved in to develop broader skills and confidence. All our Y12 students undertake a work placement in the summer and our Student Leaders form a key role in enriching the life of our students across the whole school.

We would like to give you the opportunity to come for a visit and see all we have to offer you. Please don’t hesitate to give the sixth form team a call on 01609 773340 or send an email to enquiries@northallertonschool.org.uk
