- Sixth Form
The warmest welcome to Jane Austen College sixth form. Our school mission is to develop our knowledge and character so that we lead great lives. We see this fully epitomised in the opportunities available in our sixth form and in the successes of our alumni. I believe passionately that all students have the potential to fully succeed in life, and that sixth form should give you the opportunity to do just that. We have established ourselves in recent years as one of Norfolk’s top sixth forms, with our students consistently achieving some of the county’s leading results.
‘‘Sixth-form students make outstanding progress. The proportion progressing to university, employment and/or training is much better than the national average.’’ Ofsted
We provide an excellent, academic education for all our students taught by subject specialists who are passionate about the powerful knowledge on offer in their disciplines. You will leave lessons not only more knowledgeable but also more inspired to be creative and critical contributors to your subjects. We also offer a lot more beyond your lessons; all of our students receive excellent support, enabling progress to university and into successful careers. The UK has some of the world’s top universities and our students achieve the results that help get them there.Progressing to university or a degree apprenticeship is increasingly about more than just grades.
Our character curriculum including pastoral and academic mentoring gives you the wider experiences you need to develop excellent employability skills and will prepare you for university and a flourishing life. Our students benefit from the best teaching and academic support, but also have the opportunity to get involved in a wide range of societies and electives.
The college is a vibrant, diverse, and social community. From joining the college debating society or choir, to getting involved with sports clubs or drama productions, you will be able to develop your passions at Jane Austen College.
Our specialism in English, humanities and the arts means that our students benefit from the best expertise and facilities. Through our unique partnership with Sir Isaac Newton Sixth Form, the UK’s first specialist science and mathematics sixth form, we are also able to offer our students a range of science and maths subjects. Both Sir Isaac and our sixth form courses are rated Outstanding by Ofsted. Our facilities,
in our iconic and extensively redeveloped city centre buildings, are tailored to these specialisms.
Our students find every college day stimulating and engaging and develop a real love of knowledge. I look forward to meeting you and working together with you to help make your future a successful and exciting one.
