Our sixth form is built around a set of core values:
- Meeting the needs of every student
- Raising students’ expectations of what they can achieve
- Blending tradition with innovation to provide the best we can for all students
- Being inclusive and collaborative and providing a supportive environment where all students can flourish and reach their potential.
Our aim in the sixth form is to build on the outstanding achievements of Tudor Grange Academy by providing continuity of study for students and ensuring high student retention rates, excellent academic results and an excellent record of entry to universities.
We offer a range of courses and programmes of study in a school environment, enabling students the opportunity to progress to further or higher education, training or employment. Students’ progress and well being are our top priority. We keep a careful check on how students are achieving and we provide comprehensive support and help through our tutor and college system. Partnership between the academy, students and parents is central to the way we work.
Students are supported in their journey to higher education or training and apprenticeship with a systematic programme of taught sessions, talks and visits. We also have links with local universities including Birmingham, Warwick and Worcester.
Students are encouraged to engage in a wide range of enrichment activities including working with younger pupils in the academy, work in one of our partner academies, community and work experience placements and academic enrichment.
Across the academies we offer a mix of academic and vocational pathways that is inclusive and centred on the needs of students. We spend a great deal of time trying to ensure that students are on the most appropriate courses for them as individuals and we respond with flexibility and understanding to meet student’s needs.
Rowlands Trust Scholarship
The Rowlands Trust has a long history at Tudor Grange Academy Trust of financially supporting our students and this year saw the first year that 6 of our Year 13 students awarded the Rowlands Trust Scholarship. The criteria for students to apply was to be completing with us in their last academic year and chosen to progress on to University. Students were required to formerly submit a letter of application outlining the following, what course they will be studying, what have they contributed to the Academy and what impact has the Academy had on their progression and how might they utilise The Rowlands Trust Scholarship.
We are proud to announce that the Board of Governors and Rowland’s Trust chose the following students Katie Hughes, India Denton, Taya Fellows, Joe Sanders, Emma Sanders and Nathanael Underhill.
Students were awarded during their celebration assembly with the news that they had been successful and each of them have been supported with £1000 per year, for a period of three years at university.
