The Sixth Form enjoys a dedicated Sixth Form Centre called Trinity House. The Centre is equipped to the highest standards with two large computer suites and spacious work areas. There is a common room with facilities to purchase refreshments, relax and meet friends.
As part of “a good Academy which is quickly improving” OfSTED 2012, you will be able to choose from an extensive range of A levels and vocational courses, delivered by experienced teachers who are passionate about their subject. To ensure you have the best learning opportunities the class sizes are small and helped by support staff.
The Academy has established excellent links with business and industry and their representatives are involved in a number of activities that support your development and awareness of what goes on in preparation to you making the next step. To further develop your skills and interests the Academy has an exciting range of extracurricular activities on offer from fencing, rowing, rugby and hockey to fishing.
The facilities for Art, Engineering, Science, Sport, Music and Drama are state of the art and you are encouraged to use them. Be involved in productions like “Phantom of the opera” or participate in residential visits ranging from the Lake District, Yorkshire to Zambia and South Africa. The opportunities are here to widen your horizons and develop your character.
Finally, you can develop yourself through service and leadership opportunities provided in our Sixth Form prospectus. As part of a family of state schools with the best Oxbridge candidate record on Tyneside we have developed our practice in the light of theirs and offer excellent opportunities for anyone of Sixth Form age.
