Sixth Form

Hall Cross Sixth Form is a thriving and highly successful learning community. We hope that the information on offer on this website will help you to make the right decision about your future studies. On this website you will be able to find out about the wide range of courses we have on offer here at Hall Cross and all the information you should need as a current or prospective student.

Hall Cross Academy Sixth Form offers you the opportunity to tailor-make an education that is right
 for you. Our focus is your academic and social development, and we will provide you with outstanding support and guidance throughout
your time with us.

Care & Guidance

We have recently launched our new Personal Tutor system into the Sixth Form which will further enhance the level of care and guidance you will receive during your time with us.

Your Personal Tutor will be an important source of support, and will meet with you regularly on a one to one basis.

In addition, you will be a member of a Tutor Group, and each week Personal Tutors will meet with their students to deliver a programme of support which includes:

  • Careers information, advice and guidance
  • Study skills support
  • Academic review and mentoring
  • Student Leadership scheme

Enrichment

It is vitally important that you are able to develop as an individual ‘beyond the classroom’. Our programme of enrichment will ensure you are able to develop the skills and attributes that universities, employers and apprenticeship providers will look for in addition to your grades.
