Welcome to our Sixth Form
Welcome to Eggbuckland Sixth Form
Stuart Pearce -
Assistant Principal KS5
Eggbuckland Sixth Form is a great learning community where we deeply care about the development and academic achievement of our students. We are a small Sixth Form with small class sizes. This enables us to really know the students, giving them the academic support and feedback that they need to be successful. I am particularly proud that many of our ex-students keep in contact with us and frequently tell us the positive difference we have made to their lives. Our teachers masterfully plan the curriculum so that our students can extend their knowledge, achieve to the highest levels and build upon their character.
We work closely with our West Country Schools Trust partner Sixth Forms (Heles, Plymstock, Combe Dean) and Discovery and Achievement training Colleges to offer one of the widest selection of courses across any Sixth Form in Plymouth. Our outcomes are consistently good with 100% of our students able to aim high and leave us with an appropriate University place, apprenticeship, or a career with further training.

The character of each and every student cannot be left to chance. We not only want to applaud the most amazing academic and vocational results but see a growth in confidence and the acquisition of the skills that employers and Universities seek. This is embodied through our key TICK values of Tenacity, Integrity, Compassion and Knowledge. To help enact our curriculum and core value aims as well as studying and exploring specific subject disciplines our students take part in an extended curriculum where they complete activities that enhance their wellbeing, Learning, Reading, and wider experiences. We also understand that students' mental health and overall wellbeing can affect their learning and achievements. We therefore proactively promote positive mental health and closely monitor student welfare and attendance to prevent problems before they arise and offer support where needed. Students will be mentored, referred and motivated to seek help, to cope with life's challenges as they arise to enable them to fulfil their full potential.
