Sibford Sixth Form


Cate Mallalieu-Needle, Head of Sibford Sixth Form

Welcome to Sibford Sixth Form: a place where you can develop intellectually, personally and socially.

We are a small, close knit community that offers students high levels of support, care and guidance. Sibford Sixth Form actively supports students in building on academic success and preparing students for their adult life: vocationally and academically.

Individualised courses

Sibford Sixth Form offers individualised courses tailored to suit each student’s needs. The courses are challenging, exciting and relevant for each student. We aim to ensure all our Sixth Formers fulfil their potential.

Individual attention

Sibford Sixth Form is a caring but challenging environment where students can develop intellectually, socially and personally. You will be treated as an adult and receive individual attention and teaching from subject staff, tailored to your learning style and needs.

Tutor support

Alongside this you will have close, personal attention and support from your tutor and this will enable you to reach for success in all aspects of your courses and grow in maturity, confidence and resilience.

Additional workshops

Specialist subject staff have the time to share their knowledge with students beyond the classroom, often running additional workshops and tutorials. This means that any difficulties you have will be identified early. Extra support is available for all students. You will be encouraged to aim high and be supported when the challenges are tough.

Warmth and support

The Sixth Form students’ needs, dreams and wishes are at the heart of all we offer at Sibford. Personal attention will be given to the academic development and welfare of all students, from those who live down the lane to those who have travelled across the world to join us. The Sixth Form is characterised by warmth and support, which places value on respect, trust and understanding.

We are a co-educational Sixth Form comprising both day students and boarders. Our sixth form boarding house is staffed by experienced House Parents, supported by Sixth Form tutors and, whether on a flexi, weekly or full-time basis, provides a valuable opportunity to experience independent living in preparation for university or leaving home.
