Welcome to The Adeyfield Academy Sixth Form
At The Adeyfield Academy Sixth Form we pride ourselves on offering high quality courses within a structured, caring environment.We have high expectations of our students and are always available to advise and support our sixth form students throughout their time at The Adeyfield Academy.
Our aims are:
- To ensure that all Sixth Form students make good progress and improve their outcomes in relation to their starting points in both A-level and vocational courses
- To ensure that all students are on appropriate study programmes that allow them to be stretched and challenged
- To continue to raise the aspirations of Sixth Form students to ensure successful progression into University, Employment and Training opportunities
- To ensure the Sixth Form enrichment programme gives students the opportunity and exposure to develop their cultural capital

The Wider Curriculum
Sixth Form students play a unique and valuable role in the school and all students are encouraged to get involved in a whole range of school activities that develop a sense of community and social responsibility as well as developing personal skills which help them prepare for Higher Education and the workplace. As part of our volunteering programme our students can be seen around the school supporting in class, helping run the LRC, supporting students with their reading and acting as mentors to our younger pupils as well as helping to run and organise school wide events. We have also very successfully taken part in the Dragons’ Den challenge and many of our students volunteer with the National Citizenship Service.
At The Adeyfield Academy we feel we provide the right balance of a structured supervised learning environment with an acknowledgement that all students have reached an age where they need to be given greater responsibility and freedom to enjoy their studies. Considerable scope is allowed for students to contribute ideas towards the running, organisation and development of the Sixth Form. The Sixth Form are also represented by our Head Students who participate and lead student voice across the school and help in promoting what is great about our school.
The Sixth Form Centre
Sixth Form students have access to the Sixth Form Centre and Learning Resource Centre providing students with state of the art facilities for them to study similar, to a university style environment. The Sixth Form Centre is accommodated in a suite of rooms at the heart of the school and our students played a significant role in its design. The Centre includes a Common Room with kitchen facilities and a separate area for quiet study with computers to enhance the quality of learning. The main emphasis in all of the areas is on independent study. We aim to provide a quiet environment which is conducive to effective learning.
The school works closely with The University of Hertfordshire, Barclays Life Skills and Causeway Education to help provide our students with the skills and opportunities to pursue challenging careers through Higher Education. We have record numbers of students who are applying to continue their studies at University.
Parental involvement remains an important feature of Sixth Form education at The Adeyfield Academy and there is regular reporting to parents through half-termly Individual Assessment Reports, and parent consultation evenings.
