South Wolverhampton and Bilston Academy’s motto is “Learning for Life, Securing Success”, this shows our commitment to supporting all students to achieve the nest possible qualifications whilst also providing them with the life skills they need to develop into respectful young adults who have happy and successful lives. In addition, we are committed to providing students with a wide range of opportunities both in lessons and through enrichment activities to inspire them to have high aspirations for their future. We are very ambitious for our students, particularly those in Sixth Form, and expect their hard work and dedication to be rewarded with excellent grades.
Our Sixth Form students are expected to be role models for younger students therefore we also have very high expectations of their attendance, engagement and conduct whilst inside and outside the academy. The vast majority of students leaving SWB Academy Sixth Form go onto University study both locally and across the UK, others secure apprenticeships or employment; we pride ourselves on ensuring all have a successful outcome! We want the very best for you, we will do our best to support you, we expect your very best in return!
Mrs Kerry Inscker Principal
Director of Sixth Form’s Welcome
At SWB Academy, we have high expectations for all students who enter our Sixth Form and aim to prepare them for the future demands of Higher Education and the workplace. Although a high level of academic success is the key objective, the Sixth Form team works equally hard to help develop students’ skills, character and level of independence. We want to make their time with us as rewarding and enjoyable as possible so that they can have a successful Sixth Form life.
The Sixth Form team provide advice, information and guidance to help students achieve their goals. We want them to feel valued as individuals and we will make sure that we listen and provide a programme of study to meet their needs.
Students receive support from Form Tutors, Subject Teachers, Achievement Leaders and all of the Sixth Form team to make sure that they can do well in their studies but also to challenge them to reach their potential. We offer careers guidance and extensive one to one support when applying to university, for an apprenticeship, or for the pathway which they decide to follow. In addition to the student’s programme of study, they will be provided with opportunities for enrichment. Students may want to become a member of the Sixth Form Student Council, take part in a sporting activities, gain a qualification in First Aid, or become a prefect or volunteer to support younger students.
Sixth Form students are expected to maintain high standards of attendance, conduct and dress.
Whilst students in Sixth Form are encouraged to be independent as they make the transition into adulthood, we maintain regular communication with parents/guardians regarding all aspects of Sixth Form life to promote a united support network from staff and parents/guardians.
