Welcome to Kemnal Technology College Sixth Form
Whether going to university, starting an apprenticeship or going into the world of work, our Sixth Form is driven by the goal of helping all students to achieve their goals. We offer high quality teaching across a wide range of subject areas, with a culture that fosters independent learning.
In our most recent Ofsted Report, teaching at KS5 was described as “consistently good, and sometimes outstanding” and the positive attitude that our Sixth Formers have towards learning was also highlighted (Ofsted 2013). The academic transition from year 11 to Sixth Form can be challenging, but we ensure that students hit the ground running by providing them with Summer Taster Tasks, running a comprehensive induction programme and timetabling Study Skills sessions throughout the year.
Sixth Form students enjoy the full benefits of our state of the art, brand new Sixth Form Centre. This area is dedicated exclusively to Sixth Form study, group work and mentoring. It comes complete with a large computer suite, study resources and an area for social interaction. In addition, there are numerous opportunities to get more involved with the wider school community, whether it be playing for the highly successful Football Academy, arranging events as part of the Sixth Form Committee or leading whole school initiatives as a member of the College Council.
We organise a wide range of events, such as talks from prestigious employers and universities, designed to help students succeed when planning for life beyond Sixth Form. This is complemented by our work experience programme, which organises placements for students appropriate to their career ambitions. For those students who are applying to university, we allocate them a member of the KS5 team to give them one-on-one guidance throughout the UCAS process, as well as providing parents with the information they need for this step.
The KS5 team ensures it gets to know each student’s personal strengths and weaknesses, enabling us to push them and support them appropriately to ensure they reach their full potential.
