The Rushcroft Foundation School Sixth Form is a place where students can seize and exploit a wide range of opportunities, developing themselves as creative, resourceful, energetic and independent learners.  Sixth Form students are key leaders within the school, playing a full part in helping to create a cohesive and forward-thinking environment.  We know that every student making the transition from Year 11 to the Sixth Form is ready to grow, to become a young adult, and claim full responsibility for their own learning. We will support you in this, providing guidance and expertise that will allow you to increase awareness of your strengths and areas for development, and helping you to reach your goals, both present and future.

Rushcroft Sixth Form is a dynamic environment, offering a wide range of learning opportunities.  With a strong emphasis on active learning in the classroom, workshop and studio, your teachers will consistently challenge you to think for yourself and fulfill your potential.  Our Sixth Form curriculum is designed to be broad, balanced and flexible, meeting the needs of every student.  We use a Pathways Model to help you choose courses that will suit you.  Your goals, aspirations and understanding of how you learn best, together with your KS4 results, will guide which Pathway you choose.  


The Pathways model – September 2016 to July 2018
