Welcome to the Sixth Form
Nottingham High School has a thriving Sixth Form community of over 200 students. Our aim is to provide all students with a wealth of opportunities, the highest quality teaching, excellent pastoral support and an exciting range of co-curricular activities.
Moving into the Sixth Form is very much a transition from traditional learning to an emphasis on independent thinking and self-motivated study. As well as the tremendous opportunities to achieve academic success, our students are also encouraged to develop their interests within a wide programme of intellectual, sporting, leisure and social pursuits.
The culture of the Sixth Form is driven by high expectations and high aspirations. Our community is achieving, driven and confident, and Nottingham High School takes every opportunity to celebrate success and support students in meeting ambitious targets.
Students and staff work in a spirit of mutual respect underpinned by intellectual curiosity.
New freedoms bring new responsibilities and our students are expected to act as role models for the younger pupils and to embrace opportunities to take on leadership roles. Whether this is as a prefect, a language ambassador, an officer in the CCF, directing music and verse-speaking choirs, or as a younger pupil’s Maths buddy, we see this as an important part of their personal development.
Our Sixth Formers demonstrate a genuine desire to take on new responsibilities. We are proud to see our students leaving the school as confident, interesting and intellectually inquisitive young adults, equipped not just with qualifications but with a rich diversity of experiences and skills, and an appetite for new challenges.
