Life at St Mary’s
SM6, the Sixth Form at St Mary’s College continues to go from strength to strength, offering our students top quality educational provision, outstanding facilities and a commitment to the highest expectations standards.
We work tirelessly in pursuit of further improvement so that we are the best that we can be.
As the world becomes increasingly interlinked, we believe it is important to offer our students the opportunity to become global thinking citizens, visit different countries and experience different cultures.
As well as Nepal, Poland, Berlin, France, Geneva and New York we also have various different trips in the UK such as Media exhibitions in London, field trips in Filey and Psychology observations at Chester Zoo.
One of our most popular trips is the New York trip - a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Students tour the ‘Big Apple’ and see some of the most iconic sights in the world including Times Square, Fifth Avenue and Central Park. Our students are left simply astounded at their experiences of NYC.
Early Entry Support
Although our most academically able students will automatically be assigned a Graduate Intern, all students can benefit from their expertise. Our students can refer themselves for help or our outstanding teaching staff will refer their students for help in areas such as academic writing, help with UCAS references to universities and apprenticeships, organisational skills and coping with workload.
Students will benefit from being in a tutor group which focusses on applying early for university, interview practice and preparation and developing university-style study skills, such as debating. They receive high levels of support with their personal statements and UCAS applications from an experienced form tutor, three of whom attended Cambridge University and so can share their direct experiences of applying to the world’s leading universities. The students are given the chance to visit Oxford, Cambridge and a wide range of UK universities and these trips are enhanced by our status as a Lead World Class School.
We pride ourselves in offering caring and impartial advice to all of our students. It is as important to us that a student’s path post-18 is as secure as the grades that they will achieve in their final exams. Whether university or an apprenticeship is best suited, we will offer hours of experienced guidance.
