Welcome to the Sixth Form area of the Bluecoat Academy website. I hope you find the information contained within this section to be useful and informative; be that as a prospective student/parent or for existing students/parents of the Academy.
Bluecoat Academy Sixth Form is a diverse and comprehensive Sixth Form situated on Aspley Lane in the city of Nottingham. We are a large Sixth Form of 550+ students, offering level 2 and 3 academic and vocational courses; this includes a range of 25+ A level subjects.
The Sixth Form has seen significant growth in student numbers in recent years alongside consistent and significant improvement in standards of attainment and progress. This growth in student numbers has been achieved by retaining nearly 70% of Bluecoat Academy Year 11 students, whilst also seeing a significant increase in applications from students from other schools, colleges and academies.
Message from Ms Wood- Head of Sixth Form
I am thrilled that students at Bluecoat Academy Sixth Form have once again delivered an exceptional set of A level results this summer, despite the challenges of new linear A level specifications. These results show an increase in the overall attainment of our students, and suggest our students have exceeded national progress benchmarks for a 5th consecutive year, allowing them to progress on to their first choice of University, apprenticeship or chosen career path. This includes students progressing on to competitive entry courses including Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Mechanical and Aeronautical engineering, Architecture and Nursing at some of the most prestigious Universities.
Students have achieved these results studying both A level and Vocational (Applied General and Technical Level) qualifications, ensuring they are well prepared for the challenges ahead.
I’m delighted that all of our students’ hard work has been rewarded with these results and wish them all every success for the future.
