Your sixth form
Your future
Your way


Thank you for your interest in applying to Weavers Sixth Form.

Our aim is to provide the opportunities and environment that will enable every one of you to reach your academic potential. We will challenge and support you to gain the skills which will enable you to make the most of the opportunities offered to you by Weavers for a successful future.

We are also really excited by the potential for future collaboration between ourselves and our fellow CET school Wrenn Academy. We will continue to explore opportunities that may enrich our students’ experience through our partnership, whether this be through the possibilities of widening our curriculum offers, sharing our best practice or through combining our resources. We’re confident that together we will become a powerful force in our ambition to secure outstanding quality of education for all young people in Wellingborough.

We understand the demands the changing economic climate places on future learners and consequently we work with all students developing, not only your academic skills, but your intra-personal skills, so that you are well prepared to take your place in the wider world confidently.

Every ambition, ever dreamed, individually achieved
Our students are given clear direction and advice about their choices so that we are confident that we match students to the right course, giving them the greatest possible chance of success.

Each Sixth Form student receives an Individual Study Plan for each subject, which outlines their AS and A2 studies term by term. This enables parents, teachers and the pastoral team to support and encourage our students at every stage of their A-Level programme.

The ISP also gives students a clear understanding of what assessments and topics lie ahead in each subject, accurately targeting areas of strength and weakness and most importantly, preparing our students for their final exams. We expect students to set themselves high standards in their work, their extra-curricular activities and with their relationship with others.

We take your future personally

We offer a wide range of courses designed to cater for current employment trends, university preferences and future plans. All are delivered by our experienced teaching staff. Most students will go on to Further Education upon leaving school. Our specialist Tutor Team have vast experience of guiding students through this crucial time of their academic lives.

As well as guidance and support in university application we also help students prepare to move into apprenticeships, or employment and training. Our students receive the best possible advice to help them achieve their potential at A-Level and BTEC Level 3 but also to make the best choices beyond this.

Students arrive into the Sixth Form as teenagers and leave as motivated young adults ready for the next step in their lives.
The possibilities are endless. Joining the Sixth Form at Weavers will certainly offer you a varied, challenging, and exciting two years. I look forward to meeting and working with you.
