The Cherwell School Sixth Form is a large, popular institution of over 500 students. We offer a very wide range of A level courses and a variety of extra-curriculum opportunities.
We have high expectations of our students and our central aim is to enable each of them to achieve success in whatever they undertake, by making the most of the opportunities available to them. We want them to be happy, to aim high, to be lifelong learners and to be responsible citizens; the School Aims, which can be found in this prospectus, provide further detail on our vision for our school community – Opportunity, Responsibility, Excellence.
Our aims are further supported by our status as a National Teaching School; we take a lead role in the professional development of teachers and support staff and work with other schools to contribute to the raising of standards. We also have a specialism in science and mathematics and hold certifications for the International Schools Award, the Artsmark Gold Award and the Inclusion Quality Mark. These awards continue to help us to raise standards even further across the whole curriculum and to develop our facilities for the benefit of our school and of the local community.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our teaching, our strong pastoral system and that we offer a variety of opportunities for extra-curricular activities and enrichment. It is the combination of these three areas that make The Cherwell School Sixth Form so special and 'outstanding' (Ofsted).
