About the Sixth Form

Scholarship – HAB6 students are curious learners who are eager to critique, challenge and test knowledge and application in all subjects. Students are well-supported to do just this; they are taught at HAB6 by highly experienced subject specialist teachers who are passionate about their subject and who know how to inspire students to achieve the highest grades. Many teachers at HAB6 are not only outstanding at teaching existing knowledge in their subject areas, they are also committed life-long learners and academics themselves, contributing to debate and knowledge within their chosen subjects, and respected in their fields for this.

This means HAB6 students are exposed to cutting-edge knowledge and understanding that will enable them to be ahead of peers who study elsewhere. Through discipline, hard work and perseverance, HAB6 students will enjoy the reward of success, and our staff will do everything they can to ensure this.

Subject Enrichment - Alongside the post-16 programme of study, all students participate in enrichment classes to further their understanding of their preferred subjects. Students complete independent research as part of their subject enrichment learning as well as attend Russell Group University seminars and lectures to further enhance their knowledge and understanding of a subject.

Student Leadership - At HAB6 we recognise that developing students’ ability to communicate and lead effectively is just as important as academic excellence. Through every student participating in a bespoke leadership pathway programme, they develop the necessary skills to leave HAB6 as confident young people ready to take on the challenges of the 21st Century.
