The sixth form at St Gregory the Great provides a structured and nurturing environment for students interested in 16+ study. We have a widening participation policy at our sixth form, and have an exceptional record in students making above average progress.
Effective leadership of teaching in the sixth form ensures that students achieve well. Students benefit from sound guidance to help them progress to aspirational next steps.

We have good achievement across all levels, and this can be seen in our results. We also provide opportunities for our students to develop their spiritual and moral attitudes through mentoring and other extra-curricular activities.
Continuing your studies here means learning within a supportive Catholic structure with good and caring relationships between staff and students; a high value placed on achievement; experienced and well qualified staff who are already aware of your strengths and your development points and who will help you mature intellectually, morally and socially; a familiar environment amongst friends, and our focus on the student as an individual.
We welcome students from other schools into our sixth form, and value the contribution you bring to our community. We help new students settle quickly, and our small size enables staff to provide the appropriate support to learning and development. We offer a structured and supportive environment to explore the opportunities to contribute to personal development as well as the entire school community from the primary school up, where indeed many of our sixth form gain valuable experience and even the chance of an apprenticeship.
THE TUTORIAL SYSTEM
Each student is placed in a sixth form tutor group with a dedicated sixth form tutor, who looks after the pastoral aspect of the student’s life in the sixth form and is also the student’s mentor, meeting regularly to discuss work and progress with reference to targets and forecast data. Advice is provided in study skills, independent learning and career progression, whether employment or higher education.
