“ E Q UA L I T Y, C A R E , E X C E L L E N C E ”


Welcome to the Desborough Sixth Form Prospectus Welcome to the Sixth Form at Desborough College; I trust that this prospectus provides you with a comprehensive overview of why our innovative curriculum and outstanding support, care and guidance programme has led to excellent results year on year for our Post-16 learners. Developing students’ curriculum vitaes or UCAS statements is a key priority and from Year 12 we offer many opportunities to broaden students’ experiences. For example, many students, as part of our enrichment programme, opt for a community experience which includes working as support within lessons, volunteering as a peer mentor, or working in one of the local primary schools. All Sixth Formers are expected to wear business dress as part of their study contract and we take real pride in seeing our students as active role models within the college. The following pages of this prospectus outline what makes studying at Desborough College a unique experience. As an inclusive Sixth Form we believe we have a curriculum to suit all learners and we very much look forward to joining you in the most crucial phase of your education so far. Should you wish to ask any questions about the Sixth Form do not hesitate to contact us at the College or via our Sixth Form hotline email: sixthformhotline@desborough-college.net

Why did I choose to join the Sixth Form at Desborough College? The Sixth Form here places a strong emphasis on allowing each student to make the best of their abilities. The staff have always supported and encouraged me in pursuing every opportunity both within and outside school. They make every effort to prepare students for life beyond school, organising extra revision sessions before examinations, helping with UCAS applications and offering a “friendly ear” and support. Sixth Form students play an important role in every day school life; mentoring junior students, helping with the coaching of sports teams and serving as senior prefects. All these activities are immensely rewarding and help develop real life skills. The Common Room offers a relaxed environment in which to socialise, whilst the silent study areas and the exclusive floor in the LRC help to develop independent learning techniques. There are competitive senior squads for rugby, hockey, football and cricket. If your interests lie elsewhere the timetable allows you to pursue them. Desborough College has equipped me for whatever I choose to do next and I’m confident that it will do the same for you! Joseph Cox, Head Boy

Post-16 Education at Desborough College We are delighted to be able to offer a co-educational sixth form. Our students dress smartly in formal business attire such as a dark suit. This reflects their standing in the college community, one which they fulfil with pride. All members of the sixth form carry out responsibilities of supervision throughout the college under the guidance of the Head Boy/Head Girl and their deputies and prefects. The prefects are selected by their peers and form a close link between sixth form students and staff. Every student is treated as an individual and his/her development and welfare is supported by an effective and caring pastoral team, a close network of form tutors and a comprehensive life skills programme. Desborough has recently converted to Academy status under the sponsorship of The Education Fellowship, which was founded by Sir Ewan Harper CBE and Johnson Kane. This has not only given us access to some of the most experienced people in the country in terms of deepening and widening our academic performance but also has brought connections to universities and businesses across the United Kingdom, which is of great benefit to our students throughout the college and particularly in the sixth form. 3

Appropriate course choice is a fundamental requirement of any student’s post-16 decision making process. At Desborough we provide a broad range of traditional and contemporary subjects to A level as well as providing alternative pathways through our National Certificates, BTEC courses and the Consortium. All year 12 students are involved in the Enrichment Programme which offers them a range of courses to supplement their studies. There are regular sessions which focus on the personal, social and careers education. Additionally, sixth form students receive excellent support and guidance with their applications to higher education and also when seeking employment. If you would like to continue your education in a co-educational sixth form, where you are valued as an individual, challenged and rewarded for your efforts, then please come and talk to us, either at our Open Evening or by appointment with our Principal. We look forward to meeting you.

Our

Courses 5


At Desborough College we know each of our students is different. Each has his or her own strengths and weaknesses, interests and skills. Some of you will know from a young age exactly what it is you want to do and the path to get there. For others you will look to be inspired by your experiences in the curriculum to guide your choices in the sixth form and beyond. Desborough offers you a personalised curriculum in the sixth form. We believe that no matter what qualifications you have achieved by the end of year 11 you will find that we offer a curriculum that will suit your interests, your stage in learning and your style of learning. A levels suit students who enjoy and succeed in purely academic subjects. You will achieve well in examinations and feel confident that the results of your end of course examinations will accurately reflect your ability. Students wishing to follow an A level course will have achieved a grade B or above in the equivalent subject at GCSE. You will also have a total of five higher level passes at GCSE or their equivalents.

The UCAS points from BTECs are accepted on a wide range of university courses. BTECs suit students that achieve well in continuous assessment, knowing that initial work can be improved before final submission. Students wishing to follow a BTEC course will have achieved a grade C or above in the equivalent subject at GCSE or the BTEC level 2 course. You will also have a total of five higher level passes at GCSE or their equivalents. You may wish to take a combination of A levels and BTECs as this suits your interests and gives you the right mix of study. In this way we are able to offer a fully personalised curriculum. Some students will not have achieved the entry requirements to access the courses above and we will have a menu of BTEC level 2 courses for you to choose from. The one year courses that we have on offer will, we believe, excite and engage you. After successfully completing the courses you will be able to continue on to BTEC level 3 courses, start an apprenticeship or start work.

The BTEC qualification has been established for over 25 years and is respected by employers and universities.

The Sixth Form Curriculum offers a broad range of traditional and contemporary A level qualifications as well vocational courses.

Post-16 education is an exciting and yet slightly daunting process for most students. Choosing the right courses, whether A level or BTEC, in the right subjects is crucial to students to enable them to achieve their potential. Although students can change courses in September of Year 12 it is strongly recommended that this only occurs in exceptional circumstances, primarily because the first few weeks of Sixth Form study very much determines the likelihood of future success.

Ask Yourself...

?

What GCSE grade am I likely to achieve in this course? GCSE grades are a sound indicator of A level performance.

Did I enjoy the course at GCSE? Students are more likely to be motivated and engage in self study if this applies.

Is the course one I haven’t studied before? If so, then students should undertake some research eg internet, reading, etc to try and get a “feel” for the subject. What do I want to do after Sixth Form? Students should consider the requirements of their next steps whether they be in Higher Education or the workplace. What do existing Sixth Formers think of the course? Try and speak to some current Sixth Form students and ask them for their honest opinion.

What are the names of the individual modules that make up the full A level course? Do they sound appealing? These modules will help build a picture of what students will be faced with once the course has commenced.

What is the course specification like? This can be found on the various Examination Board websites will take students’ research one step further.

• Year on year the sport and active leisure sector outperforms the rest of the UK economy; this has been a trend since the end of the economic recession of the late 1990s, and researchers predict will continue to be the case for years to come, long after the sports legacy of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympics Games. • The annual contribution of the sport sector to the UK economy is over £8 billion. This sector has more than 36,000 employers creating work for more than 600,000 full-time and part-time employees, and 5million plus volunteers. A significant proportion of the total volunteer workforce is volunteering in sport,with most of them involved in sports coaching or activity leadership. • Despite the prevalence of this sector, a third of the workforce in the sector have either no formal qualifications or are only qualified at level 1.

“The enrichment programme gives students a good range of choices to explore personal interests and develop additional skills and knowledge. This provision, along with good careers guidance, prepares students well for higher education or employment.� Ofsted

Sixth Form Life The sixth form is housed in a recently refurbished self contained block within the school. There are two common rooms available for both year groups, one of which has its own kitchen. They are a mix of study areas combined with comfortable seating for informal conversation. Table football and

table tennis are accessible during break and lunchtimes and of course, after school. In addition, there is a fully equipped class room with ICT facilities. This is solely for the use of the Sixth Form . All sixth form students have exclusive access to the mezzanine level in the

library, which contains up to date periodicals and university related materials to assist students in choosing courses to extend their studies beyond Desborough. We trust our students to make the best use of the facilities available to them.

Sport Competitive sport is high on the agenda in our sixth form. It is encouraged and held in high esteem by both the students and the school. We play rugby, hockey, football, basketball, tennis, athletics and cricket amongst other sports, and students have an excellent record of producing teams and individuals who compete at the highest level. County honours have been achieved in all of the above sports and we are proud to say that some of our students have become international athletes and hockey players.
