Our mission is to provide a high quality Post-16 education with a focus on a range of A Level subjects that offer a time-tested proven route to university, employment and Level 3 apprenticeships. It is our aim to offer the students of Chadderton and the surrounding area an unrivalled level of pastoral care so they can flourish, succeed and benefit from today’s global employment market.
The majority of students follow traditional Advanced Level courses which can lead to University entrance. In Year 12, most pupils take 4 AS level courses and then follow A2 courses in Year 13. The North Chadderton Leadership Programme and enrichment programmes are also offered to broaden students’ development. We offer students access to the AQA Baccalaureate.
The Sixth Form has its own Senior Student Team who act as ambassadors for the school and Sixth Form, leading on a range of initiatives including fundraising, arts and cultures at North Chadderton, events planning and coaching. Many students take the opportunity to work with younger pupils on supported-reading, Physical Education and other individual skill areas, alongside a variety of extra-curricular activities such as Young Enterprise, the Duke of Edinburgh Award and the debating society. This excellent experience is valued by Higher Education establishments and employers.
At North Chadderton Sixth Form we have considerable experience in helping students achieve their potential and in preparing them for success beyond the Sixth Form. Our Summer 2016 results are evidence of the outstanding attainment of students in our Sixth Form, with students passing 99.1% of all A Level examinations.
The advantage of a school with a Sixth Form rests in the quality of the relationships between the students, their parents and the staff. Keeping everybody informed is of paramount importance.
Work Related Learning forms part of the Personal Development Programme for all pupils from Year 7 onwards. We have a close partnership with Oldham Connexions Service.
We are proud of our students’ impressive record of success when they leave North Chadderton. Many students progress to further or higher education. We have a great record of students achieving places at the most prestigious Universities including Oxford and Cambridge. Some students go directly into training or employment, covering a wide range of occupations. We also have excellent links to support students with Level 3 Apprenticeship programmes.
