Sixth Form - Moorlands Private School 6th Form College in Clitheroe
Preparing for Life & Further Education

Sixth
Form

Moorland Sixth Form prepares students for further education, professional life and successful adulthood.

A Place for Learning and Development

OUR SCHOOL PRINCIPLES

Moorland School Sixth Form builds on  previous learning and gives students the platform to achieve their life goals. Our unique individualised learning approach adapts education and daily life to create the perfect environment for learning. This allows our students to leave Moorland confident and assured of their abilities.

 

A central part of this success is our small class sizes. These classes allow our dedicated team to hone the syllabus and adapt it to individual strengths and interests. This format along with our pastoral care creates a family atmosphere perfect for developing interpersonal skills like communication, self-confidence and respect.

 

This focus on individual development amid a family-like atmosphere allows us to prepare students for A-levels. These skills prepare students for life beyond school and allow them to pursue their goals.

The sixth form curriculum is uniquely individual. Our dedicated team of educators tailor learning to specific interests and strengths allowing our sixth form students the scope to pursue their dream careers and goals. We teach a broad range of subjects from Maths, English, Science and Geography to creative and technical pursuits like Dance, Design and Technology, and Art.

Independence

Social skills, or ‘soft skills’, are a vital part of student development. Our educators and pastoral team understand the importance of teaching students to communicate effectively and we endeavour to make sure everyone at our school feels heard. This breeds confidence and independence.

Mission Statement

A CARING & CONSIDERED APPROACH

Moorland school creates a safe and open space to prepare students for life beyond school. We do this by helping our senior students pursue their goals and develop socially, emotionally, and intellectually. Our team engage, encourage and challenge students to help develop their skills. We do this through our close-knit, familial pastoral care and a uniquely tailored curriculum

 

This approach works because our educators and carers love what they do. Students learn best when educators are inspired by their own subjects and we are lucky enough to have a team that cares deeply for education and the welfare of students.

Specialised Learning

AS-levels are the first year of the A-level programme. Students usually choose four AS subjects and carry three over into their final year. Students in Sixth Form are given the space and time to learn their chosen subjects supported by a team of dedicated educators and pastoral carers. Our individual education approach means that every student in the sixth form receive the very best support and guidance and always have somewhere to turn if they have questions or concerns. 

 

We use modern assessment techniques to understand where students are in their development and alter the education system accordingly. Parents are part of this process and we are in constant communication to celebrate victories and highlight areas that need focus. We offer a broad selection of subjects including English, Maths, Science, Art, Drama, Music and more.

Students studying for A-levels usually choose three subjects from their AS levels. Our teachers and education team dedicate a lot of their time to hone an individual’s strengths and address issues before they become a concern. This approach means we can really help students achieve outstanding marks on their A-levels and go on to study or pursue their goals outside of secondary education. Students can choose from a wide range of subjects including Maths, English, Geography, Religious Education, Science, Art, Drama, ITC and more.

 

Our educators work with students and use trusted assessment methods to prepare students for the requirements of their final exams. We are fortunate enough to maintain small class sizes and our students thrive in this close-knit family environment.
