  • Joining St Ambrose College at Sixth Form

    Each year the College welcomes boys from other schools who wish to join the Sixth Form providing they meet with our entrance requirements. In the past such boys have settled in well, made friends, played a full part in the life of the Sixth Form and have been successful academically. The study programme consists of three Advanced Level subjects plus an EPQ or Core Maths. Some students may be able to study four Advanced subjects and there is an opportunity for those students to also complete an EPQ. A lively and thorough Religious Education programme is an essential part of the Sixth Form curriculum. During study periods boys are able to work in the Sixth Form Common Room as well as a dedicated IT suite for Sixth Form use. There are also lessons in which advice is given about university entrance exams and interview techniques, essential when applying to the top universities.

  • Life in the Sixth Form

    The two years spent in the Sixth Form is an exciting and enjoyable period for those boys who have achieved qualifying success at GCSE and who wish to pursue further studies. At Saint Ambrose College we maintain a Sixth Form with traditional values of excellence. In accordance with our Mission Statement, we seek to provide a structured and caring environment in which our boys can fulfil their potential. Each year the majority of Upper Sixth boys go on to study at Russell Group universities. To achieve such academic success requires an ordered, self-disciplined determination to work hard. Tutors track and monitor student progress, ensuring regular and accurate assessment leads to all targets being met and students reaching their full potential. We believe boys should participate in extra-curricular activities that will contribute to the growth of happy, welladjusted, creative young men of faith, concern and integrity. We offer a wide choice of activities: rugby, football, basketball, badminton, cross country, athletics, tennis, skiing, debating, public-speaking, orchestra & choir, drama, Duke of Edinburgh Award, Chaplaincy team, charity work, pro-life, mentoring of younger pupils etc. There are also opportunities for foreign study visits, field studies and to attend the theatre and outside lectures. Our Sixth Form also enjoy a wide array of extra-curricular activities. Above all, we believe that boys should be learning in a vibrant community where the Catholic faith is lived out as an integral part of their lives. To make transition from College to university as seamless as possible, we have introduced online mentoring where Sixth Formers can communicate with undergraduates from local universities regarding revision techniques and university life ,which helps to prepare students for their next step to university and beyond. Last summer Saint Ambrose College A Level students attained 71% of grades at A* to B, and with continued support would aim to improve upon these academic achievements. The Sixth Form are excellent role models who nurture and mentor younger students within their college community
