Welcome

“Students are very proud of the outstanding sixth form”
OFSTED

Keswick School Sixth Form is an exciting and quite unique place to study: our community is enriched by its range of students and all of them are proud to be part of it. We welcome applications from students currently at Keswick and from students currently studying in other schools and colleges.

Hard at WorkWe place immense value on academic achievement, encouraging each and every student to do his or her best. Teaching is excellent. It is delivered by enthusiastic specialists who thoroughly enjoy teaching sixth-formers and strive to see them succeed. Most of our students go on to study at degree level, often in the selective universities of the Russell Group; others are supported in their aspirations to achieve apprenticeships or employment.

SportAs well as this we are keen to support the wider development of the individual through a range of other activities, sporting, cultural and community-based, which enhance the transferable skills universities and employers are so keen to see in young applicants. We strive to produce young people who have succeeded academically, are excellent independent learners and who are confident, aspirational and mature.

Supporting StudentsThe pastoral team in the Sixth Form is dedicated, offering superb guidance to students as they learn. I feel privileged as a teacher and as Head of Sixth Form to work in such a thriving and inspiring educational environment. We hope the information on our website is useful and you can download the most recent prospectus using the link below: please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like to discuss moving into Keswick School Sixth Form.
