The Sixth Form at Ashcroft Technology Academy is an exceptional place to learn. Students and staff have worked together to create a culture of aspiration and success. Our students enjoy their time at the Sixth Form and are given superb support and guidance, which combined with excellent teaching, enables our students to excel.
Students leave our sixth form articulate, confident, accomplished and ambitious young adults who understand the importance of rigour and high standards. Underpinning our proven track record of success is a team of highly motivated, hard working and qualified staff who have an unreserved belief in the ability and potential of young people to succeed. Our IB results are outstanding: in 2020 our average points score was 38.3 points and the average grade per subject was 6. Each year a number of students achieve over 40 points, allowing them to take places at the very best universities such as Oxford, UCL and Kings.
Outside the Classroom
The extracurricular provision at the Academy is virtually unrivalled. Every member of staff at the Academy runs a club or society, providing our students with a wealth of enrichment opportunities. Advanced Collective Orchestra, Debating Society and Model UN have been particularly popular with IB students. Students attend a range of workshops, lectures and conferences both within and outside of school. The Academy offers a range of leadership opportunities, from House Captains to the Head Student Team. Furthermore, students who display a particular passion for a subject may also apply for our scholarship, receiving up to £500 to put towards an opportunity to develop in that field. Examples include pre-med courses or university summer schools.
