Welcome to the Folkestone Academy Sixth Form located in the heart of Folkestone at the Glassworks Sixth Form Centre. At our new centre, we have worked hard to create a Sixth Form where students are able to study, thrive and develop in a mature and supportive environment designed to make learning stimulating, appropriate and successful, and where every student can achieve their true potential. Working together, we have created a caring community willing and able to work with students in the lower school and with members of the wider community of Folkestone with an emphasis placed upon good relationships and partnerships encouraging mutual respect, understanding and co-operation.
We offer a wide range of Advanced Level GCE (or equivalent) courses at the Glassworks Sixth Form Centre which cater for a wide range of needs and future aspirations. We also offer places in Hospitality and Catering, Hair and Beauty and the Rugby Academy at the main Academy campus with some students working successfully at both campuses. We have very high retention rates on all courses with many of our students progressing onto a variety of universities or directly into employment. Along with academic success, students enjoy all the opportunities afforded by a well-resourced Academy, with a wide range of extra-curricular activities.
The essential ingredients of our Sixth Form can be summarised as follows: A wide choice of subjects and activities, a superb custom-designed Sixth Form Centre, a highly dedicated team of teachers and advisors and a student body characterised by its extraordinary energy, intelligence and camaraderie.
