Welcome to your sixth form

The Thetford Academy Sixth Form is a fully inclusive sixth form, with the aim of delivering good-quality, relevant courses that meet the needs of all our students. 

We offer both A Levels and BTEC courses, covering a wide range of subjects and opening up lots of opportunities for employment or further study.

We believe that putting the right students with the right courses and combining this with a programme designed to suit the needs of each individual will allow every student to reach their potential. We are proud of the extensive experience, knowledge and commitment of our teaching staff at post-16 level.

The sixth form is housed in the new building complete with state-of-the-art study areas, common room and social area.

Our sixth form is a full time institution which offers students their full entitlement of guided learning hours. Each subject provides 180 guided learning hours, and sixth form students enjoy regular academic mentoring, sport, supervised study, online learning and library sessions.

We also offer a one-year Access to Sixth Form programme for students who need to improve their study skills and base GCSE grades before taking the more demanding Level 3 courses.

or more information on our sixth form, please read our prospectus.

Open evening

Our open evening for students due to start Year 12 in September 2019 will take place on Wednesday, October 17 2018.

Students and their families are invited from 6pm to look around the school, meet the teachers, and ask any questions you may have about the transfer to sixth form.

The open evening is a great opportunity to get a flavour of life in our supportive school community, tour our fantastic facilities, and find out how Thetford Academy can help your child to achieve their full potential.
