Welcome to Cardinal Wiseman 6th Form
As a sixth former at Cardinal Wiseman you will have the opportunity to build upon everything you have enjoyed in the past. You will also be able to take advantage of a range of new opportunities and innovative ways of learning and discovery, in an environment that we hope you learn to call home.
Below are 10 good reasons why we believe you should consider Cardinal Wiseman Catholic Sixth Form Centre as your preferred choice for Sixth Form:
- Academic Experience: You are guaranteed to receive high quality teaching from hardworking, dedicated & specialist teachers.
- Curriculum choices: You will be able to study a wide range of qualifications including combinations of A levels and vocational BTEC courses, (if you so wish). For those interested in a career within the sports industry, our new Level 3 Sports and Football Apprenticeship is an exciting addition to the courses that we offer.
- Results: We are consistently in the top 3 sixth form centres for outcomes for the Greater Coventry area.
- Pastoral Support: You will be a member of a form group led by an experienced tutor who is your daily point of contact. We also have a Learning Mentor who are able to provide 1-to-1 pastoral / academic support should you require it and a dedicated UCAS Mentor to support your university application.
- Learning Environment: There are dedicated learning facilities in our Sixth Form Centre; we have silent and group study areas, an IT suite and a set of laptops. When the weather is fine, students can even study outdoors in the St Francis Sixth Form garden.
- Outcomes: Typically, 80% of our Year 13 students go to University with a significant number accessing Russell Group Universities, Oxbridge & medical courses.
- Independence with responsibility: In year 13, after students have completed their mock examinations, those who have shown responsibility for their own learning can gain ‘off site study’ release on an incremental basis. This supports the development of the skills of organisation and independence required for undergraduate study or employment.
- Student Voice: Students can take a leading part in the day-to-day running and development of the Sixth Form through the Sixth Form Student Council.
- Extra-Curricular & enrichment opportunities: Sports teams, drama/musical performances, the Warwick University Pathways programme and overseas development with Malawi Trust are just some of the fantastic opportunities to learn new skills and gain new experiences.
- Community: Cardinal Wiseman Catholic Sixth Form is a happy and supportive Catholic environment where we try to follow Jesus in our actions and in our words.
