It’s an exciting time to join Allerton Grange Sixth Form!
As a Sixth Form student, you will be based in your own Sixth Form Centre, providing a range of facilities including social spaces, classrooms, workspaces and computer suites. The bespoke building opened in Autumn 2021 and gives our Sixth Form students their own space and increased independence to manage their time and their studies.
Whether you choose to study A levels or a vocational course, you will benefit from smaller class sizes, high quality teaching, and a supportive environment with a range of enrichment opportunities and careers guidance.
Our aspirational enrichment programme is a critical cornerstone of life at Allerton Grange as we believe that education and growth isn’t just limited to classrooms. All students participate in our extra-curricular and enrichment programme in order to widen their experiences, develop their talents and grow as individuals. This is especially important for Sixth Form students as they prepare for their next steps to university, an apprenticeship or the workplace.
We have a very successful Sixth Form which is demonstrated by strong A level results and post-Sixth Form destinations.
Year 13 students (2023):
- 70% of students secured places at university.
- 25% secured places at Russell Group universities. (compared to 15% nationally and 14% across Leeds).
- 20% have moved straight into employment.
- 1 student secured a degree apprenticeship.
Ofsted rated Allerton Grange Sixth Form ‘Good’ in February 2020, stating “Students enjoy the Sixth Form and have very positive attitudes. They appreciate the support they get and feel that they are well prepared for their intended studies at university or their future careers.” We are also consistently in the top 25% of Sixth Forms in the country.
We offer a broad curriculum of Sixth Form courses in subjects including: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, English Literature, English Language, Mathematics, History, Classical Civilisation, Geography, Criminology, Psychology, Sociology, Religious Studies, French, German, Spanish, Business, Economics, Law, Computer Science, Physical Education, Performing Arts, Drama and Theatre Studies, Music, Product Design, Textiles, Health & Social Care and Hairdressing.
In the Sixth Form, students have greater independence and with that comes leadership opportunities through community work, mentoring younger students, qualifying as a reading mentor, being a sports leader, supporting marketing for school events and Sixth Form Leadership Group work such as peer support and arranging social events.
Applications for September are welcome from current Allerton Grange students and from those studying elsewhere.
