Primary Phase Secondary Phase Sixth Form

Sixth Form

Welcome to the 6th Form Centre

 

Thank you for visiting our 6th Form page.  Here you will be able to read about some of the many activities students participate in at school, local colleges and in the wider community. The students will be working on items they would like to include on the website.  We will update this page as often as we can. 

 

We offer a varied curriculum for our students including cookery and regular sports including: swimming; trampolining; cricket and fitness sessions.  We have good links with local sporting facilities such as Boarshead Golf Centre and Crowborough Lawn Tennis Club; we try to arrange blocks of sessions for students over the course of the year. 

 

The emphasis at 6th Form is on preparing students for life beyond Grove Park alongside their regular studies. Where appropriate, we offer some students the opportunity to access a largely practical based curriculum to support and encourage learning. We access Blackland Farm and Bowles Outdoor Centre for many activities as well as utilising Ashdown Forest. 

 

Moving On

We are more than happy to help families look at options available for students post 19 and are happy to support as required.

 

Annual Events and Outings

Prom

Following the success of our first prom for Year 11 and 6th Form in 2018, we hope to make this an annual event.

This year's prom will be held at Crockstead Farm Hotel, Halland in July. 

Thank you to GPCT for funding this event.

 

Camp

Students have had the opportunity to spend a week camping at Blackland Farm in May since 2018.  This is a popular event that allows students to spend every night at camp, selected nights or access day activities only over the course of the week.  We are hoping to continue to provide this opportunity annually.

 

  

 

 

 

 

Local Colleges

We have good links with the local Further Education colleges.  Groups of Secondary and 6th Form students will be attending West Kent College on weekly courses throughout the course of the 2019/20 academic year.   

 

We are hoping to provide students with day release college courses if this option is suitable for them and will try to secure courses to suit each student's interests as far as possible.  In 2018/19 we sent five students to West Kent College to study hair and beauty, motor vehicle management and animal care. This year, 2019/20, we are sending seven students to study land / animal care courses.  The students will achieve a certificate for one year and a diploma if they continue their studies for two years.


 

Vocational Work Visits

We try, wherever possible, to provide some supported experience of life in the work place for our students. We are very fortunate to have built up very good relationships with some local businesses and organisations.

Our links with local businesses include: Waitrose Crowborough; The Pet Food Shop; Tiddlers Nursery; The Courtyard Cafe Rotherfield and All Saints Church Coffee Bar.  In addition to these work experience partners, we have secured a day a week for two students at Blackland Farm over the course of this academic year. 

We are always looking for suitable providers, so if you think you might be able to help, or know of a business or organisation you think may be suitable, please do let us know.

 

 

Please do contact the 6th Form Centre if you have any queries or would like to visit the centre.
