Whether you are currently a student of Huish Episcopi Academy or are considering joining from elsewhere I am delighted that you are interested in our Sixth Form provision and hope that this prospectus gives you a flavour of the academic rigour and enrichment opportunities that exist which makes Huish Sixth a very special place to learn.
Huish Sixth is an integral part of our large and highly successful Academy. Based in a state of the art multi-million pound building designed specifically for Post-16 study we offer a wide range of qualifications and an educational experience which is based on small class sizes, personal attention and quality teaching.
Our Sixth Form provision has grown rapidly in recent years and we now have approximately 215 students studying with us. This means that we are able to provide a wide range of enrichment opportunities which is able to change and respond to individual need as well as offering additional opportunities, such as Philosophy and the Extended Project Qualification, which gives students from Huish Sixth an undoubted edge over other Post-16 providers.
Our increasing popularity is also due to the fact that we now have a track record which is second to none of enabling students to reach the very best universities in the United Kingdom. Over the past few years we have had two students attain places at Oxford and in 2015 two of our students joined Cambridge University. Such student destinations, alongside all the other universities that our students have gone onto such as Bristol, University College London, Warwick, Exeter, Southampton and Durham, ensures high expectations of all students and resulted in an outstanding student body which represents a very dynamic, creative and committed group of learners who both support and challenge each other to be better than they ever thought they could be.
We believe that Huish Sixth is a great place to learn where every student can excel, with great teaching and fantastic individualised support from a range of staff and within a community of other highly motivated students all keenly focussed on similar aspirations.
Our website gives a flavour of the special ethos that exists between students and staff at Huish Sixth and I hope it encourages you to find out more about what we can offer you as an individual.
I look forward to meeting you.
Andrew Davis, Principal
