At Walker Technology College we recognise that Sixth Form is the next crucial step on our students’ educational journey, whether their goal is moving onto university or into work.
Out track record of ensuring progression to employment, further education, training or university is exemplary.
The jump between KS4 and KS5 is generally accepted to be the hardest jump students make in their education. This is why we have developed a comprehensive pastoral system of care and guidance that cannot be matched. Our partnership with Sir Charles Parson’s school brings a new dimension and diversity to the College and gives our students the opportunity to meet new people from different back grounds.
Students are expected to be ambassadors for the college; to apply themselves and use their independent time well. We expect our teachers to deliver high quality lessons and strive to unlock potential. Getting this mix right leads to a highly successful and enjoyable experience.
Our Sixth Form Prospectus indicates the wide variety of subjects and courses available to those studying KS5 at Walker Technology College.
As well as the subjects contained in the Prospectus, occasionally we alter the courses offered to reflect the aspirations of our learners.
Find below a list of all of the courses that are currently being studied by our Sixth Form students. Please note, these are subjects being studied during the Spring term of 2017 and is not a reflection of all of the courses which have been completed during this academic year.
