Teesdale Sixth Form 2018/19

Welcome to our Sixth Form

Choosing where to study at sixth form is one of the most important decisions you will make. Not only does this choice pave the way for your career path or further study at university, but it also helps to build a foundation for adult life. 

Small but perfectly formed, Teesdale Sixth Form, focuses on a core population of up to 100 students. A sprawling college or sixth form centre we are not, but what we lack in size, we make up for in personalisation. 

In 2019, 44% of all A level grades were A* or A and student progress was excellent.  These results put Teesdale among the top sixth forms in the entire country.  Over a third of our students who went on to university went to study at Russell Group institutions.  Furthermore, a number of our students secured places on competitive apprenticeship programmes including those with GlaxoSmithKline and the fire service.

After joining the North East Learning Trust in 2016, our sixth form has gone from strength to strengh. The Trust share our ambitions for sixth formers and bring with them experience and expertise to help us secure excellence for every student. Our partnership was formalised in September and begins with a clear focus on becoming truly outstanding.

I hope you find this website useful, but words and pictures can only tell some of the story so I invite you to visit us personally at Teesdale Sixth Form to see first hand what a unique place it really is.

The vision for our sixth form is to prepare students to change the world in the broadest sense, to leave with qualifications to make a real difference in their chosen area of study and career.
