Applying to join the Sandringham Sixth Form for September 2017

Sandringham sixth form Open Evening – Tuesday 17th January 2017

Our wonderful sixth form (graded Outstanding in November 2014) is open to anyone who meets the GCSE entrance criteria, whether you are from Sandringham or another school. 148 students began their university life this term and you can view a map of where they have gone here. We work in partnership with Beaumont and Verulam Schools in the BeauSandVer Education Trust, allowing students to access a very wide range of subjects. Each year, large numbers of external students choose to join us from all over Hertfordshire and we make sure you feel comfortable and welcomed right from the start of your transition. Distance is not an issue, provided you can make your way to and from the school. 

There are currently over 300 students studying A-level subjects making it one of the largest academic sixth forms in the area, and more than 800 students in total studying across BeauSandVer. You will be able to study in our purpose-built sixth form campus which opened in November 2012, including the split-level study zones, large teaching rooms and our on-site Starbucks cafe.

You will receive a very high standard of teaching, be able to access a wide range of course opportunities and have the support and preparation to help you be successful and move on to some of the very best Universities in the country.

We have arranged the following key events to help you make this important decision of where to study you A-levels next year:

Examination results 2016

We are really proud of the achievements of all our students this summer. They have been rewarded with many outstanding results in their various examinations. At GCSE, 84% of students achieved 5A* - C including English and maths, which is a wonderful performance and reflects the talent and effort of our lovely year 11 students. Over 37% of all results were A* and A grade, with many achieving all A* and A grade results. As usual, we report combined BeauSandVer results at A-level which is the combination of results from our post-16 consortium including Beaumont, Sandringham and Verulam students. These were also excellent results across the three schools with students progressing to Higher Education at some of the very best Universities in the UK. Headline figures for GCSE and A-level are shown in more detail on the examinations page. I would like to congratulate all our students for their work and also thank the staff for their outstanding work. Well done to everyone and good luck in the future!
