A Message from the Head of 6th Form- Mr Mike Shaw

At Buckswood we are proud to offer three pathways in our sixth form all of which have produced excellent university placements for over ten years; with this year our students achieving offers at Oxford, Cambridge and Imperial College London. Our A level, International Baccalaureate (IB) and University Foundation Course (UFC) curriculum provides three study options that match a student’s aptitudes and learning style and is a tried and tested stepping stone to university study, both in the UK and overseas.

 

Buckswood provides a collaborative, supportive and safe learning environment that enables scholars to develop their academic and social interests. We encourage scholars, with the aid of close support, to explore their interests and to extend their learning beyond the confinement of the classroom. We believe the multicultural nature of our sixth form prepares scholars for the next stage in their academic and working careers, with the chance to discuss and debate many issues relating to their studies with people from across the globe.

 

At Buckswood we help to find the correct career pathway for all our scholars, with each being given one to one career and university application guidance; we are proud to send our scholars to some of the very best universities in the country and believe that the one-to-one support through the UCAS system is second to none.
