What Makes Our Sixth Form Special...
Joseph Leckie Academy is now established as one of the best 6th form centres in the Black Country with strong educational results at 'A' Level and vocational subjects and an amazing programme of enrichment and support for every student.
This has recently been backed up by two consecutive ‘Good’ Ofsted Inspection Reports which state:
- "Outcomes in the 6th Form are good. The school provides an inclusive curriculum effective teaching and good support"
- “Students receive effective support to be successful and independent learners”
- “All students are well prepared to go on to higher education, employment and training”
(Ofsted 2017 and 2021)
We believe in high academic standards, rich personal development and preparing our students to live successful and fulfilling lives. These ambitious aims are reflected in the high quality of our teaching, the careful planning of our curriculum and in the advice, guidance and personal development support offered to all of our students. This includes our highly respected careers programme with links to employers and high education institutions across the local area and nationally. All our students have access to high quality study facilities, including our new, state of the art study centre with a full-time support assistant on hand to provide guidance and assistance when needed.
Our 6th form students are very much a part of the wider Academy community here at Joseph Leckie and you will have access to a wide range of volunteering and leadership opportunities as well as a full programme of enrichment opportunities. We are proud of what our 6th form students achieve and take every opportunity to celebrate their success as role models for younger students in the Academy.
Our promise to you is a learning experience that will give you every opportunity to succeed. We hope you will come to us excited, curious and prepared to meet the challenges and take full advantage of everything that is on offer in our innovative and vibrant 6th Form. If you do, we know that you will leave us highly qualified, on a pathway to further success and ready to face the future with confidence.
