There is no restriction on where students live when applying for Simon Balle Sixth Form – we welcome students from outside our immediate area, from other local schools and from the independent sector.
Students are expected to have displayed a mature and co-operative attitude towards academic work, fellow students and staff during their GCSE course. Please familiarise yourself with the subject entry requirements.
The Sixth Form at Simon Balle is a friendly and energetic community. Our students take advantage of our varied curriculum to best suit their chosen pathway. We aspire to ensure that every student secures a place at university, an apprenticeship or meaningful employment after their Sixth Form study.
A range of academic programmes are available to our students in order to cater for a variety of interests and aspirations. Students can choose from A Levels, vocational qualifications or a blend of both depending on the requirement criteria. We are proud of our success in the Sixth Form and our results continue to be some of the strongest in the county.
Sixth Form enrichment is an area of real development. Simon Balle provides valuable experiences outside of the academic curriculum to provide all students with opportunities to develop key interpersonal skills and individual character. We aim to suit all of our student’s passions and more. From enterprise projects such as The Dragons Apprentice, to supporting our primary school students in lessons, and the more traditional sport or music options are all available.
We are very proud of our Sixth Form community and we would be delighted to hear from you. Simon Balle offers a supportive, enjoyable and stimulating environment for you to achieve your aspirations, in order to access your chosen pathway moving forward.
