Sixth Form Life

Welcome to The Maynard Sixth Form…
…Where Your Future Begins!

Life revolves around independent learning, and all our subjects are taught with passion by our friendly and talented staff. You’ll experience a range of teaching styles because we understand that everyone absorbs and processes information differently. When coupled with our small class sizes, this enables us to give everyone the bespoke academic, university and pastoral advice critical to success in Sixth Form study.

As a Maynard Sixth Former, you will be based in our dedicated Sixth Form Centre, with space for individual study, excellent computer provision, a common room and kitchen, Sixth Form classrooms and tutor offices. In addition, there is a bright and airy Sixth Form library in the main school building. The Sixth Form even has its own garden! You can wear your own clothes and enjoy considerable freedom, with independence in managing your own time and achieving a healthy work-life balance, preparing you for life at university and in the workplace.

You will be given the opportunity to learn important life skills such as car maintenance and how to cook and eat well on a budget, so that when you embark on your next step, you’ve got the must-have tools to make life easier. As a senior member of the school community you will also take on responsibilities that will develop your management and leaderships skills. You will have the opportunity to run clubs, organise activity sessions and take whole school assemblies – all excellent experience for entering ‘the real world’.
