Student Life

Greensward's Sixth Form provides students with the opportunity to develop a broad range of social skills as well as academically. They are able to support younger students by becoming peer mentors, embark on community projects and take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme.

There is a large variety of trips, visits and events visits on offer such as to New York, the Higher Education & Careers Fair, UCAS Day and Insight into Leadership as well as the chance to become involved in the Holocaust Educational Trust's annual trip to Auschwitz.

There is a senior student team and the new team will take up their tenure from September. Harvie Chaperlain and Kate Pilbro will lead the team as Head Boy and Head Girl, ably supported by their deputies Will Barry and Emily Heritage. As their term in office begins, Kate said how she was " ... determined to make a difference and leave a legacy to which other, younger students, could aspire."

What our students say about the Sixth Form

"Greensward Academy is a place which allows you to grow as a person and as an academic. Its friendly staff guide you with such reassurance, that you never feel lost or unsupported. However, the boundaries of staff and student are still there; a firm but fair ethos means we always know what is expected of us. The best thing about Greensward though is the students. I have met people I know that will become my lifelong friends and that is pretty special."

"As someone who joined Greensward Sixth Form from another school, I was amazed at how friendly everyone was. I settled in really quickly and have made some brilliant friends. The teachers do loads to help me and are always really approachable when I have a question. Greensward has helped me out loads and I am not afraid to tell people ... whilst I was showing a guest round during Open Evening recently they said they couldn't imagine a student who could speak more highly of a school. What makes it really special is that I meant every word!"
