Participating in the local and the global community
Situated at our Mill Mount site in central York, All Saints Sixth Form is thriving. With a reputation for high attainment and a unique community feel, we are proud that our Sixth Form is experiencing considerable growth.
We accommodate almost 400 students on a wide range of A level courses. All Saints Sixth Form is a natural progression for most of our Year 11 students and it is also the Sixth Form of choice for a large number of students from across the city, regardless of their faith or denomination, who meet our entry criteria. Our results are excellent and added value typically ranks us in the top 10% of Sixth Forms nationally. Our range of A level courses are updated regularly.
At All Saints being a considerate member of the community is important. We have high expectations of our students who should demonstrate a positive approach to their learning and to life in the Sixth Form. Sixth Formers are encouraged to be more independent than in Year 11, but although they are given freedom to develop as young adults, they are supported, guided and advised every step of the way by an active staff and pastoral team.
The sizes of our classes and tutor groups allow for individual attention, and although we are large enough to offer an excellent range of courses, we are small enough to know and care about the progress and wellbeing of each individual student.
By the end of Key State 5, our students have experienced a well-balanced education in their chosen subjects, and are prepared spiritually and socially to become an active member of any community. Our personal development programme supports all students through the next stage of their career development and external professionals are invited in to school to contribute to this. Many of our students progress to further and higher education, studying at some of the UK’s most prestigious universities. We are just as proud of our students who enter employment or embark on apprenticeships, contributing to the local economy as responsible and caring members of the community.
As part of their educational experience, students are able to engage in a variety of opportunities offered by a whole range of subjects. These include Biology and Geography field trips, visits to Iceland, and our Politics students also visit Washington and New York every two years with the department. Foreign Language students also have the opportunity to take part in exchange visits and our Business Studies department regularly invite business speakers into school and also visit local and national businesses.
