Queensbury Academy Sixth Form


Being part of the sixth form is both an exciting and challenging experience for students. It involves greater freedom and choice, provides new opportunities and allows students to develop their own identity whilst being part of the Queensbury community.

We aim to create opportunities for students to become confident and ambitious learners, who embrace challenges and strive to exceed their potential. Students who study with us experience a supportive environment and are well equipped to deal with the demands of sixth form study, whilst being given a platform to flourish. We are very proud of our students’ achievements in sixth form over recent years, with many attending top universities.

Our sixth form offers a broad range of subjects with a mix of traditional A-Levels and vocational qualifications, alongside fantastic facilities. We believe in academic achievements but also know that becoming a well-rounded sixth form student is equally important in helping students progress as they make important decisions about their futures. We ensure all learners are aware of the options available to them and work with students to guide them in the right direction as they take the next steps as young adults.
