Sixth Form Study Programmes

St Gregory’s has a strong academic reputation at Key Stage 5. At St Gregory’s, our 16-19 study programmes are designed to provide our students with a structured and individualised learning programme that supports their development and progression in line with their future career plans.

We have high expectations of all our students in terms of their commitment to their studies and their self-motivation. We match this with a high level of support including progress tracking, intervention, mentoring and supervised study sessions. A mixture of academic and vocational qualifications is offered. Sixth form course options are discussed at the Sixth Form Information evening and there is a comprehensive induction day where students have an opportunity to discuss entry requirements with departments.
