Wadham Sixth Application Form 2016-17 (external students) (Word / PDF).  (If you complete the Word document this can be submitted via email to the Director of Key Stage 5 - Mr McNulty (email link below))     
Summary of A level (or equivalent) Results 2015 
A*-B      55%          A*-C      77%           A*-E      97%
In 2015 all of our students who wanted to go to university gained a place in their first choice university
with 50% of those students going to a Russell Group University.
Ofsted said that we ‘achieve above the national average’
‘The sixth form is good. Students make better overall progress than is the case nationally. Results in A level
and other examinations are above the national average. Many students progress to higher education.’
Ofsted said that sixth form students make ‘good progress’
‘Students in the sixth form achieve well. Many attain above average results, representing good progress
from their starting point. For example, very high quality work was seen from students, most of whom had
modest GCSE results, studying a sports science course.’
Ofsted said that ‘teaching is good’
‘Teaching in the sixth form is good. Many classes are small, enabling the teacher to give much individual
help. In a Year 13 mathematics class, where students’ target grades ranged from A* to E, the teacher
challenged lower attaining students with difficult questions, and gave help with unfamiliar specialist
terminology to a student developing his fluency in English.’
Ofsted said that ‘the sixth form is well led’
‘The sixth form is well led and the curriculum meets the needs of the students who choose to stay and
study at the school. As the sixth form is small, students are guided carefully to the provision that best
meets their needs.’
Committed to helping you
Our 2015 leavers have gone on to varied and exciting challenges. With their academic achievements and a
positive sixth form reference, some have secured much sought after apprenticeships with prestigious
companies. Some have taken a gap year visiting and working in destinations as far afield as China before
taking up a teaching course next year. Good exam results combined with many transferable skills allowed
others to secure jobs that met their interests and aspirations.
