Sixth Form at Stamford offers a unique opportunity to fuel your ambition and lay the foundations for life after school.
"Sixth Form at Stamford is about far more than just achieving the qualifications that unlock your next steps in life."
Head of Stamford School
At the heart of what we offer you at Stamford is the opportunity to thrive, to help you become the best version of yourself. We encourage every student at Stamford, from Nursery through to Sixth Form, to be an independent thinker.
At Stamford we offer you the opportunity and breadth of experience, so together we give you an education that develops your ability to think for yourself.
We want you to be aspirational, to be forward thinking and to become a rounded and grounded individual, ready for the next stage of your life once you leave us.
It’s not about who you are now; it’s about who you can become
The process involved a Sixth Form focus group sharing input and ideas in the design and feel of the new campus, including the new coffee shop area, library space and common room. St Martin's is also just a short walk away from our new Wothorpe Sports Centre.
We value your worth. We aim to expand your creativity and individuality. We will value you for your individual strengths, passions and personality; your attitude towards others, and the effort you make to be your best self. You are the only one of you.
Upon leaving Stamford and becoming an Old Stamfordian, you are joining a global community of thousands of like-minded people of all ages, who value creativity, hard work, individuality and enthusiasm, and who will become your friends, your mentors, and your inspiration.
The Sixth Form at Stamford will help you unlock your future self.
Our Sixth Form offers 28 A Level courses, 3 BTECs and 1 Cambridge Technicals (as well as hundreds of co-curricular opportunities)
Our Sixth Form is a fantastic community of 400 students who support the individual characteristics of each student.
At Stamford, our additional A Level, AS and BTEC courses give you more flexibility over what and how you learn. Complete an Extended Project Qualification in a topic of your choosing, or take part in the Community Sports Leader Award.
Some courses will help you achieve UCAS points towards university entrance, and all of them will add to your skills and experience, and help you learn more about who you are.
Sixth Form at Stamford offers a unique opportunity to fuel ambition, laying the foundations for life after school.
They will be there for you as you take your first steps beyond school through dedicated professional networking groups, by providing careers information and advice, and offering help and support.
As Old Stamfordians, we will help you keep in touch with old friends, and we will organise events and get-togethers all over the world that make it easy for you to make the most of opportunities after your time as a student has finished.
Around 90% of our Sixth Form go on to university, including Oxford, Cambridge and Russell Group universities, and to elite institutions worldwide.
We will support you in exploring other routes, too: whether you’re interested in degree apprenticeships, further education, travel, gap years or volunteering, our priority is to help you work out the right option for you. For us, success equals happiness
We will do all we can to help you find the right path, and celebrate with you when you achieve it.
