Wetherby High School Sixth Form is opening its doors to prospective students next week to highlight what it has to offer and the positive progress that has been made over the last year.

A school spokesman said that the new leadership team has steered the school in a different direction, introducing several initiatives in teaching and learning.

Director of Sixth Form Louise Rodgers said: “I have been delighted to see such great changes in the Sixth Form in such a short space of time. 

“We continue to work hard to deliver a high quality of experience for all of our Sixth Formers and are happy to have the opportunity to discuss our vision at the Open Evening.”

The open evening will be on November 18 from 6-8pm.

The latest Ofsted inspection highlighted this progress and the post-16 cohort achieved the highest number of A and A* grades in the school’s history.

The leadership team, including a new Director of Sixth Form with more than 10 years’ experience of running a successful Sixth Form, has further plans to improve.

The same extra-curricular offer available to younger children is extended to post-16 students. The coaching programme, for instance, ensures regular pastoral time takes place between groups of students. In addition, the House System reinforces a team ethos through competitive events and charitable activities.

And the approach to teaching and learning is as personalised, allowing students to leave the Sixth Form with the high calibre results needed to further their education and careers.
