    A busy week in The Garibaldi School Sixth Form

    It’s been a week that perfectly highlights the extremely different stages of a students' journey in post 16 education and the wide range of activities taking place in Sixth Form. Monday night was Sixth Form open evening and a chance for Year 11 – our future sixth formers – along with their parents to come and look at what the next exciting stage of education looks like for them. For Year 12 it was the start of looking at the UCAS application process and for Year 13 it was a week of preparation as they look towards completing their UCAS application process. Regardless of whether the students...

  • Congratulations

    Year 9 student excels!

    Year 9 student Elliott Thompson received fantastic news this week as he has passed his Grade 5 ABRSM Music theory exam with Distinction. This is an absolutely fantastic achievement especially for someone in the first term of year 9! Elliott received 91 out of 100 which is amazing.

    Students must pass their grade 5 theory exam in order to go on to complete their higher practical exam grades (6-8) which are very challenging and carry UCAS points as a result.

    Elliott, after passing his grade 5 theory with the highest grading, plans to do his grade 6 piano in the March sitting. Miss Biggs...

It was again a really student led session and by the end of it they could articulate what an outstanding sixth former looked like and then reflect on this and set themselves targets in terms of what they needed to do to move from ‘good’ to ‘outstanding’. The outcomes of the two sessions are below and I think it is clear to see that our sixth formers ...

  • Welcome to the Sixth Form news bulletin

    22nd November 2019

    It’s been a busy couple of weeks for Year 13 as they have worked tirelessly through their mock exams. The way they have prepared and responded has been very impressive and we are sure that the mock grades will reflect this. Mr Brennan’s message to the students is ‘if however your grades are not what you need for your next steps then it’s time for some resilience and focus in terms of making improvements in the February mock exam series, which will be around sooner than you realise. It’s important to know that revision shouldn’t stop at the end of the mock exams, but should continue as a wee...
