Sixth Form

BISA offers all students an exciting progression into the sixth form. The sixth form shares the same caring family atmosphere as the rest of the school, ensuring that newcomers settle in quickly. Learning takes place in small supportive classes where you are guaranteed focussed teacher attention. Not surprisingly, the majority of students choose to stay on at BISA and 100% are rewarded with offers of places at university. We pride ourselves in the support we give our students in guiding them through the choices available at university and in the help that we give them in making their university applications.

BISA’s sixth form is renowned for being supportive, friendly and caring. We want all students to ‘be the best that they can be’ and will work alongside individuals to help them achieve their true potential. Students will find support in their tutor who will meet with them as part of a tutor group once a week as well as making time to have individual one-to-one mentoring conversations to monitor progress. Students are helped with their university applications and are given support in developing their study skills, time management and organisational ability, especially when they first arrive in the sixth form. This is essential in helping students to settle into life in the sixth form and in making a quick and effective transition.

Curriculum

The sixth form offers a range of options so that all students can choose a course which they can both enjoy and achieve success in. A Level courses are offered in all of the traditional subjects as well as subjects like PE, Sociology and Psychology. We also offer vocational BTEC qualifications which enable students to gain entry into university in Performing Arts, Music, PE, Media and Business.

BISA’s students are successful, not only academically but in being prepared for the challenges of life. Because we take time placing them on the right course, 100% of our students pass their A level exams and BTEC units. Our students have a well deserved reputation as being wellrounded students and as a result we are confident that we give them the best chance possible for success.
