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.

Sixth Form Intent

In addition to enabling our students Enjoy Excellence Everyday, our aim is to ensure that when students leave Hall Cross Academy they are aspirational, well-qualified, independent and globally aware young adults who are equipped for success in the world beyond the Sixth Form environment.

Our Key Stage 5 curriculum is designed to provide students a wide range of opportunities which allow them to fulfill their future aspirations and career goals. We offer a blend of A-Levels and vocational courses, and work in partnership with Doncaster UTC to ensure that there is a route and curriculum offer irrespective of a student’s ambition. Our curriculum: ensures that students fulfill their own aspirations; provides local employers with well-qualified and suitably skilled young people; and equips students with the capacity to seek employment further afield as globalised citizens. 

Our provision beyond the classroom ensures that all students have advice and guidance on the options available beyond the Sixth Form. We have excellent progression to higher education, with consistently high numbers of students going on to study at Oxbridge and Russell Group universities. Our links with a range of universities ensure that we can provide students with support with their applications, personal statements and making choices. We also support students who choose not to go to university and have links with lots of local providers and organisations which allow us to ensure students are equipped with the knowledge and information they need to make positive and informed choices about their futures.

Information around careers and futures is delivered through the academic tutor sessions and our futures week at the end of Year 12, as well as trips to universities and careers fairs. We also have a number of visits to the school from universities and other providers each year. 

Students are also afforded opportunities to experience aspects of the PSHCE and Citizenship curriculum through academic tutor sessions. This includes financial education, advice on independent living and fundamental British values such as tolerance, respect and equality.

We want to ensure that students are able to:

  • Develop confidence in team-work, presentation, research and communication skills
  • Create critically reflective students who are able to identify ways they can improve themselves.
  • Globally aware students who are aware of their roles and responsibilities in the world.

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
