St James' Sixth Form

Welcome to St James' Catholic Sixth Form

I am pleased to welcome you to the St James' Catholic High School Sixth Form website. We are a 16-18 co-educational catholic sixth form which welcomes applications from multi-faith or secular students who have been successful both in the UK and abroad. We offer a range of academic and vocational courses; Level 2, Level 3 and 26 different A-level courses alongside our tailor made pastoral curriculum and bespoke post 18 guidance.

St James' Sixth Form provides our students with excellent and innovative teaching. We work collaboratively as a staff to ensure that our students reach their academic potential, thereby enabling them to gain the qualifications and experiences to access university, further education and the careers of their choice.​ Our students understand the importance of working hard independently from day one in order to fulfil the demands of the course. Our brand new facilities now provides our students with the ability to focus on their studies and prepare them for university life.

We ensure our students are given the opportunity to 'live life to the full' (John 10:10), and develop not only academically but in character, so our students leave our care as well rounded young adults who are prepared for the modern world. Our students understand the importance of contributing to the whole school community and are actively encouraged to participate in all aspects of school life. We ensure students are provided with plethora of leadership opportunities; from the whole school leadership team who support across the school community to subject ambassadors, mentoring programmes, paired reading schemes, prefects and the sixth form leadership team who organise our charity and social events.

We believe in empowering our students to develop and grow in a structured, nurturing, environment ensuring that they achieve their academic potential and flourish as responsible young adults; who are ready to take their next steps in education or the world of work and to make a positive contribution to our society.
