Glossopdale School


Glossopdale Sixth Form is a vibrant and caring educational establishment, offering over 200 students a wide range of academic and vocational courses. We enable students to achieve their full potential through a personal and bespoke learning experience.  Our most recent inspection report describes the Sixth Form as providing a ‘strong and effective focus on improving the quality of teaching…where a high proportion of learners secure places at university…where learners’ personal development, well-being and behaviour are good…and where learners speak positively about wanting to achieve in lessons.’(Ofsted March 2016)

Students who attend our Sixth Form receive pastoral support that is second to none. We have a strong team of experienced staff who work tirelessly to ensure all students are able to achieve their full potential, both academically and personally. Students are closely monitored throughout their time with us against ambitious targets and intervention and support is put in place for anyone falling below their expected attainment. We offer our students a wide range of experiences that enable them hone the skills needed to prepare them well for their future career aspirations and all sixth formers are required to complete a work placement in the first year of their course in an environment appropriate to their future pathways.

Glossopdale Sixth Form is ambitious and maintains high expectations of all students who choose us as the place to complete their further education. We put our students at the heart of our provision and we are very proud of all of our achievements. If you are a Year 11 student wishing to apply to the Sixth Form our Open Evening takes place in October and application forms can be found on this website.
