Welcome and Aims
A Message from the Head of Sixth Form
Welcome to Park Academy West London's Sixth Form. We are very proud of our Sixth Form and its students. When you join the Sixth Form you will be working with experienced staff who are experts at delivering their subjects to sixth form students. You will become part of a thriving community and will have an excellent opportunity to develop learning skills, academic knowledge, personal responsibility and leadership experience in an outstanding environment.
As an Academy we aim to make learning interesting, inspiring and enjoyable which will aid you to achieve your high aspirations. The curriculum structure of our Sixth Form courses means you can take a broad range of courses and gain nationally recognised qualifications at the end of both Year 12 and Year 13.
As it stands we have achieved outstanding A Level Results in recent years. In the summer of 2016 Park Academy was proud to break their A level results record in both of the key measures; 70% A*-C grades and 49% A*-B. Importantly, almost half of all of these grades were the higher B+ measure required for Russell Group universities and leading UK employers. This has recently been surpassed this summer with 74% A*-C and 53% A*-B grades. In addition, 100% of our Level 3 vocational students achieved Distinction *-Pass grades with 89% of these achieving D*-D and 93% Distinction*-Merit.
Over 90% of our students have achieved places at their first choice universities. From these many accept offers from prestigious Russell Group Universities of Imperial, York, Durham, Kings College London, Bristol and Warwick. Other destinations for our students include Reading, Kent, Surrey, Loughborough as well as our local Brunel University.
If you’re already studying at Park Academy, you will be able to continue your education in familiar surroundings with teachers who know you. If you are new to the school, you will be made very welcome, find that you soon feel at home and discover why our Sixth Form is so popular and successful. As young adults, with higher education or employment not far away, you will establish a different relationship with your teachers and the highest expectations will be placed upon you in terms of your work, appearance and conduct. You will be a role model to younger students. Your views and contributions will continue to be highly valued and we will actively seek to enhance your personal skills and qualities through training and experience. You will receive support, guidance and encouragement from tutors and the sixth form team to ensure that you achieve success.
We look forward to your commitment to studying within our Sixth Form and together with my team we will aim to help you achieve the highest aspirations possible.
