Learners in the sixth form do well. They are well supported and guided, so that more of them are now going into further education, employment or training. (Ofsted, May 2016)
The John Colet School Sixth Form is a welcoming and supportive environment in which to take the important next step after completion of GCSE.
In 2019 our pass rate at A Level was 98.1% (A*-E). Students and teachers work collaboratively in order to achieve success and students in the Sixth Form benefit from access to bespoke facilities in which to conduct their independent study and access to an impressive library as well as online materials to support their learning. Students who undertake Maths and/or English GCSE resits at John Colet School do well and the vast majority improve their grade from KS4 to KS5.
In 2019 41% of students leaving Year 13 applied to Higher Education, a proportion going to Russell Group universities, and other students taking up offers of apprenticeships.
Alongside our focus on ensuring each student achieves their very best and is academically successful, we invest time in ensuring we help students to develop their character. In the ever changing, global economy, it is vital that our young people develop the skills they will need to be flexible and successful in the workplace. A focus on leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative and communication skills runs through our tutorial and assembly programme and students are assisted through focused mentoring sessions and the use of personal development plans to improve their ability in one or more of these areas.
JCS offers students a variety of enrichment opportunities which both prepare them for their next steps and enable them to be successful in whatever they choose to do in the future.
It is our ambition that each student progresses from JCS with a clear path to follow, the necessary qualifications to enable them to turn their dreams into reality and a set of skills to make them competitive and successful.
