Sixth Form

Tadcaster Grammar School has a large and thriving Sixth Form where many students choose to enrol to extend their studies post-16. Students in the Sixth Form have their own designated tutors during tutor time, to provide individual mentoring as well as delivering careers advice, Personal Social Health Education (PSHE) and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education (SMSC) activities. They are also encouraged to support younger students by acting as mentors and fulfilling leadership roles. The Sixth Form have a designated suite of rooms in the Sixth Form building for private study, with both classrooms and IT suites to further advance their studies. As well as specialist tutors, Sixth Form students are supported by the Director of Sixth Form, a Key Stage 5 Pastoral Support Officer and the Careers and Business Manager.


Naturally, we are very proud of the achievements of our Sixth Form students, the majority of whom gain places at University as well as progressing directly into employment and apprenticeships.

Sixth Form courses offer both continuity and variety for our students as well as new and bespoke opportunities. We provide:

  • A familiar, purposeful environment
  • Staff who are fully aware of each student’s needs and capabilities
  • A warm, friendly but structured ethos
