We are excited to announce that AJK Sixth Form will be opening applications for our third cohort of year 12 pupils on 31st October 2020. We will be welcoming applications from both internal and external candidates.

We have already established a very successful school, with a focus on academic excellence, character development and self-discipline. In 2015 we were graded outstanding in all areas by Ofsted. Our success to date has been the result of exceptionally hard work from both students and staff who are committed to making AJK the very best it can be. Whilst the Sixth Form will have the same ethos of high expectations, academic excellence and character development as the rest of our Academy, it will also have a distinct environment, similar to a professional workplace or university. This is the best way to prepare our pupils to be successful within these settings, where they will have a greater degree of autonomy and independence.

Our key stage 5 curriculum has been designed around the principles of mastery and will prepare our pupils exceptionally well for further study. We will be offering a wide range of subjects at A level; these can be found on the sixth form section of our website. We will also be offering two Professional Pathways. Professional Pathways are innovative programmes of study offered at sixth forms across the Ark network. They have been designed in close collaboration with partners from the commercial and public sector. Those on these pathways will study towards the BTEC Extended Diploma, worth three A levels, in a programme that integrates academic study with extensive work experience opportunities, work readiness and career mentoring programmes.
