Welcome to Wellingborough Sixth Form a vibrant, friendly and aspirational community where we develop the whole pupil in preparation for life beyond school.

Academic work and success are central to this community and the over-riding ethos is that the pursuit of intellectual curiosity is both expected and encouraged in partnership with our experienced subject teachers.

The Sixth Form offers a vast range of opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom, enabling our pupils to be well equipped for the challenges that lie ahead.

I look forward to meeting you and showing you what our outstanding Sixth Form has to offer.

Why choose Wellingborough at Sixth Form?

In the video below, Helena, currently in Year 11, quizzes Mrs Baxby on why she should choose Wellingborough and finds out about the opportunities available. Three current Sixth Form students that joined from other schools tell us why they made that decision.

Why choose Sixth Form at Wellingborough?

In the sixth form pupils often display excellent analysis and hypothesis and the ability to work independently.

Academic Excellence

A-level qualifications are a substantial academic commitment and students should expect to spend as much time working independently outside of lessons as they do in the classroom to achieve their potential. The annual Sixth Form Opening Evening is an opportunity to speak with Heads of Department and subject teachers about the curriculum offered in the Sixth Form and your personal suitability for those courses. Tailored advice is available from our academic leadership team.

Life at Wellingborough

“Pastoral Care is central to our philosophy; at each level pupils have a safety net.” The personal welfare of pupils revolves around our House system. This arrangement is unique in that almost no other co-educational Day School in the UK has a single-sex pastoral structure. Pupils testify to its success and the pride in one’s House is palpable.
