MESSAGE FROM MRS SHARPLES, PRINCIPAL

We are very sorry and disappointed that we are unable to invite you in to visit The Pingle Sixth Form this year.  Choosing a place to study for Sixth Form education with your son/daughter is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent/carer.  In these difficult circumstances, we will do all that we can to provide you with the information that you need to help you make this choice.

We are looking forward to seeing you and your son/daughter, virtually, on 22 October from 6:00pm.

Some Quotes from our Students...

"Settling in was easy and quick as Sixth Form is a welcoming environment. I enjoy the freedom given to students."

"Everyone is enthusiastic. When I came from Granville I felt like I fitted straight in." 

"When I first started Sixth Form I was really nervous as I had just moved from a different city, but I settled in straight away. I've found that the teachers here are fun, calm and willing to help." 

"The teachers treat you like adults." 

"We have had aspiration conversations and talks about growth mindset." 

"I've settled into Sixth Form really well and I am enjoying my options. The teachers are very friendly and supportive with every student within Sixth Form."

"I can do subjects I enjoy in an interesting and in depth way." 

"I like that we can study in a relaxed way using the study room with the help of Mr Smith."

"All three of my subjects are extremely difficult, but the teachers are easy to speak to and give me as much support as I need."
