Sixth Form Courses in Kent and Medway Schools

Index

 Non-Selective Schools
 
The situation in N/S schools is very different, with most offering some vocational courses often taken in conjunction with A-Levels, others one-year courses. I have chosen to distinguish some of them by noting the number of students following through to three A Levels (2019 data), but this is just one measure and other types of offering are equally important to individual students. For example, many vocational courses also offer paths to university admission.

I have only approached the 35 Kent and Medway N/S schools which had a Year 12 of over 80 students last year, out of 78 in total, although eight have no sixth form at all.

Out of all local schools, Canterbury Academy stands out as having one of the most remarkable and largest Sixth Forms of any school in the country, with over 600 students following a diverse range of courses, across four ‘pillars’: academic, sport, performing arts, and practical learning & enterprise. It takes in over 60 EU students each year, although the future for these will be uncertain with Brexit. This year it attracted 46 grammar school students from Canterbury, Ashford, Dover, Folkestone and Faversham, those previously attending other N/S schools travelling from an equally diverse range of locations.

Maplesden Noakes, is a solid, oversubscribed, Maidstone school, attracting students from across the town, which also has plenty of grammar school alternatives. Northfleet Girls attracts students from across the District, including 17 boys this year. Hillview Girls is one the highest performing N/S schools in the county and so unsurprisingly admitting a high number of 17 boys and girls from grammar schools, with another 13 from private schools.
