Why Choose Astrea Academy Woodfields Sixth Form?
As Head of Sixth Form it is my pleasure to welcome you to Astrea Academy Woodfields Sixth Form – home to confident, successful students forging independent futures.
With small classes and tailored support, we help every student to realise their potential and we achieve excellent results. For the past two years, 100% of our students completing a Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in Sport achieved a minimum grade of DDD (equivalent to three A-Level grade As).
Our cohesive vocational curriculum offers students flexibility and choice – to specialise in one subject or study a combination, with a range of qualification sizes available. Qualifications in Sport, Psychology, Health and Applied Science can by complemented by creative options including Design and Technology or Performing Arts. We also offer the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) for students keen to widen their studies.
Our strong results are underpinned by outstanding pastoral care. Many students choose to stay at Woodfields after year 11, benefiting from the stability of a familiar school setting when they join Sixth Form. Others start here afresh, and quickly settle into Woodfields life with the support of our friendly and dedicated team of tutors. Students are given opportunities to develop their leadership skills as senior members of the school, through guidance and mentoring to younger pupils.
Woodfields Sixth Formers leave us equipped with the skills needed to be successful in their next stage of study, training or work. We instil self-discipline and focus early on, so that students are able to set ambitious goals and make the most of independent study sessions in our purpose-built Sixth Form Centre. Complemented by engaging external talks and outbound visits, our comprehensive careers programme includes individualised post-18 counselling; high quality careers and finance education workshops; and personal and professional development sessions to help students succeed in their chosen path.
