Welcome to the Future Academies Watford Sixth Form Site.
Thank you for expressing an interest in continuing the next phase of your education at Future Academies Watford. We welcome enquiries from those students who may be considering potentially moving schools to join us. We are very proud of the fact that those students who have joined us at Sixth Form are met with a warm and welcoming environment.
The staff and students are very proud of our Sixth Form and the important role it plays in the life of the Academy. We have a strong record of success and achievement, as well as being recognised for the personalised support and development we offer each student.
Students in the Sixth Form benefit from an area of the Academy dedicated to their sole use for both teaching and personal study. This works to create a positive and focused learning environment supporting students as they develop into effective independent learners.
Knowledge, Aspiration and Respect is central to the learning experience at Future Academies Watford. We deliver curriculum that is ambitious, inspiring and challenging, providing students with an opportunity to find the areas in which they excel and for which they have a true passion. This starts with high quality learning in lessons taught by subject experts, and a desire to enable students to achieve their goals.
We are committed to ensuring that all of our Sixth Form students achieve excellent academic results, so that every student has the freedom of choice in their adult life. We aim to develop independent, ambitious and successful individuals who set themselves high expectations. All of our students are supported in a uniquely tailored approach to offer them a successful route to university, other Higher Education or employment, so that they can have the freedom to excel. The Sixth From provides a wide range of enrichment and extracurricular opportunities to complement our academic programme; this is supported through face to face sessions, coupled with a highly successful UCAS programme, Careers and Employability sessions, opportunities for volunteering and the completion of work experience.
We are incredibly proud of the personalised pastoral care and guidance the Sixth Form Team provides, enabling all students to be happy and successful. We closely monitor student progress and personalise the support that each student receives in order to be successful.
The Sixth Form is a time when we encourage students to mature and become adults. We expect our students to act as role models to the younger students and to contribute to the whole Academy community. Students take a very active part in contributing to the local community. We are involved in a range of activities such as Reading Buddies, student mentoring alongside national events such as Children in Need, and Jeans for Genes.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions and we hope to welcome you to our Academy very soon.
Elizabeth Fox, Head of Sixth Form.
