Pre-Sixth Form Programme

Preparing students for the next stage of their journey

The Sixth Form is the start of a new and very special phase of your child’s education. Whether they opt for the International Baccalaureate Diploma, A Levels or a BTEC, they are embarking on an educational programme that will prepare them effectively for university and for life. In addition to those important academic qualifications, they will develop valuable skills of self-reliance, stamina and independence.


In the summer of 2020, during the period of lockdown, Worth offered a Pre-Sixth Form Programme for pupils eager to make a flying start to their new courses in September. This service was just one of a number of opportunities we were offering during a challenging period for all students and was welcomed by a number of students going into Sixth Form.


Now that schools have reopened and Sixth Form courses have begun, this service is no longer being offered. However, it is something we may offer in the future.
