“Students make good progress because of the good teaching, exceptionally good care and guidance that they receive and an outstanding curriculum.”
A SIXTH FORM FOR EVERYONE
We have study routes where everyone can succeed.
We are a caring and inclusive community. All our students meet their tutors on a daily basis and are known extremely well as individuals. We have created a professional but very friendly environment and have a highly trained team who are there to support your academic, pastoral and personal wellbeing.
We place a huge emphasis on care, guidance and support. We WILL be with you every step of the way.
“I like that it’s not too big. There is always someone to help you and I feel that my teachers know me really well.”
“I was made to feel incredibly welcome and immediately felt part of the Sixth Form when I arrived in Year 12 from Bedminster Down School. I particularly enjoyed my Photography classes. The encouragement to experiment and express my creative side has allowed me to achieve more than I could imagine. I am so proud I have achieved my goal of studying Fashion and Textiles at University.”
A MEMBER OF THE GATEHOUSE GREEN LEARNING TRUST
“Sixth Form helped me to get where I am today. Everyone helped me juggle my academic studies with my athletics training. The support and guidance was fantastic and assisted me on my journey towards higher education and achieving my sporting dreams.”
EXPERIENCE AN EXCITING ENRICHMENT PROGRAMME
We understand that your future is not judged solely in terms of academic achievement.
Our priority is to develop well qualified, confident, articulate and considerate young adults, and to provide you with the confidence to accept the challenges of Higher Education or employment.
We have developed a unique Enrichment Programme that aims to give our students just the ‘edge’ in a highly competitive world. Enrichment is a programme where you can experience an individually designed package of activities best suited to your current and future needs.
Our Enrichment Programme will give you the opportunity to:
EXPERIENCE AN EXCITING ENRICHMENT PROGRAMME
- Undertake work experience or work shadowing under the guidance of our school careers consultant
- Enjoy sporting activities either through recreational sports or competitions
- Undertake a sports leadership and volunteering course
- Work with business partners to develop your CV and interviewing skills
- Enjoy wider recreational activities such as art and drama
- Give up your own time to help others through community volunteering
- Challenge yourself on The Duke of Edinburgh Scheme
Your commitment to any of these activities will look great on your CV and University application.
EXPERIENCE THAT LITTLE BIT MORE...
Your Sixth Form experience at Ashton Park will not begin and end in the classroom. We actively encourage our students to broaden their horizons and opportunities. You could be elected to be a student ambassador and help organise exciting events, or you may just want to enjoy the wide range of events and enterprises that include:
- The annual summer ball
- Annual expeditions such as our trips to Kenya to help at Inspirations School
- Activities days - surfing, paintballing, canoeing, cycling
- Fundraising events
- Regular social events – BBQs, Christmas party
- Ski and Snowboarding trips
- Other extra-curricular trips and visits
“Studying a vocational course at Sixth Form prepared me well for my job as a Dental Nurse; getting the grades was the first challenge but the additional career support I received was invaluable. I have now decided to continue learning and train as a Theatre Nurse.”
A NEW EXPERIENCE
We have an extensive vocational provision that will equip you for the world of work. If University is not in your current plans we offer a range of level 2 and 3 vocational courses that are designed to prepare you for successful careers.
As a member of the newly formed Gatehouse Green Learning Trust, Ashton Park Sixth Form works in collaboration with other providers in the city. You could be studying alongside students from Redland Green School or Bristol City Community Trust.
