Sixth Form Life

                                                                                                                                                                This is an exciting time as a brand new, state of the art Sixth Form building is being built for us and is due to open next year. This will include a large fully resourced library and study space along with careers centre, computer rooms and a large café and social area for the students.  Our purpose-built Sixth Form Centre will create a learning environment with first-rate facilities where our students will appreciate a designated Sixth Form library, Careers Centre and Common Room which develops a community spirit throughout Davenant Sixth Form.

All students in the Sixth Form belong to a tutor group with a tutor whom they will see at least twice a day.  This tutor gets to know the individuals in their form and acts as a mentor.  There are regular integration activities for both Year 12 and Year 13 students to ensure that they can learn from each other.  This promotes the sense of community in our Sixth Form and ensures that students support each other at all times.  The Head of Sixth Form and her team are on hand to also provide advice, informed guidance and pastoral support.

As well as studying for A Levels, time is also allocated for independent study, support for higher education and careers and enrichment activities.  We aim to provide students with a rounded education to enable them to make their mark in the world.  We closely monitor student progress.

Attainment and Attitude for Learning grades are made available to parents/carers and students through termly progress checks. Parents/carers are kept informed throughout the years of study and students have one full school report per year plus a Parents' Evening to discuss, not only the subjects being studied, but also the aspirations and needs of the students.





Our staff try to offer our students a wide range of experiences and opportunities.  Annually, Sixth Form students are encouraged to take part in work experience in France and Spain regardless of whether they have taken the subjects as an A Level option.  In Year 12, all our students undertake one week of work experience to support them in deciding upon their future paths.  We also offer students the opportunity to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh scheme. The Duke of Edinburgh scheme is organised by Mr Jack Glynn.  If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact him via  There are also annual trips to Iceland and a ski trip.  As well as these, individual departments organise theatre trips, university lectures and day trips to help put the learned curriculum into real life situations.


The Prefect team form a vital part of life in the Sixth Form and of the whole school.  Every January, Year 12 students apply to be prefects, and the new team then serve from Easter of Year 12 until Easter of Year 13.
