Welcome

AJD12 80793   WEB Stuart BryantWelcome to the sixth form at Caldicot School. Many of our Year 11 students choose to continue their education with us and we value the continued confidence and trust that they, and their parents, place in the school.

Sixth Form students are always keen to continue to build upon the excellent relationships they have with staff and this is demonstrated by their desire to contribute to the life of the school through their involvement in mentoring younger students and their involvement in extra curricular activities.

Students in Years 12 and 13 can choose to follow courses from a wide range of subjects at AS level in one year or at A2 level over two years. Some BTEC Level 3 courses are also offered. For students returning to the Sixth Form, we are proud to offer

  • An already well-established working relationship with our staff;
  • A high quality of learning and teaching recognised in our most recent Estyn inspection;
  • Supportive pastoral care;
  • Robust academic target setting, tracking and monitoring;
  • Opportunities to develop leadership and other personal skills through extra-curricular activities; and
  • Designated quiet private study areas, discussion study areas and coffee shop.

In addition, students have a range of opportunities to experience and explore University courses through

University visits: Throughout Key Stage 5, students have opportunities to attend presentations in school from various Universities, employers and apprenticeship providers. The school also takes the whole of Year 12 to a UCAS event at the University of the West of England (UWE) and a Skills day in Cardiff where various national and local employers are available for careers and recruitment advice. During these two days, there are no timetabled lessons and students are expected to attend.

Bristol University: Caldicot School has a very successful partnership with Bristol University. A number of our students are part of our Aim Higher group who attend lectures on a Wednesday afternoon to enhance their knowledge and understanding of their chosen subject. Successful students are often offered a place to study at Bristol after their Post-16 studies.

Seren Project: This programme was set up by the Welsh Government in September 2015 to increase the level of successful entries to Oxbridge, Russell Group and Sutton Trust Universities. In 2015-16, 22 Year 12 students from Caldicot School were successful in gaining entry to the Seren Project. Caldicot School currently has the highest number of attendees out of 42 schools and colleges in South East Wales.

Summer Schools: Sixth Form students are given the opportunity to apply for Uniq and Sutton Trust Summer Schools. Here, students are offered a residential experience at university for up to a week, where they attend lectures, tutorials and seminars.  These are provided free of charge (including accommodation and transport) by various universities including Edinburgh, Bristol, Southampton and Oxford.
