About Uplands Sixth Form

Uplands Sixth Form provides a holistic programme of study for young people with a range of learning, communication, physical, sensory, social and medical difficulties. We aim to provide challenging, relevant and fun learning experiences which support individual progression and, of vital importance, prepare our young people for adulthood.

The Sixth Form programme provides challenge and progression and enables our young people to achieve the best possible outcomes in adult life. They are expected to progress to a higher level, acquire qualifications, study English and Maths, and participate in meaningful work experience and non-qualification activity. Our young people are supported holistically to grow as individuals, through spiritual, moral, social and cultural education. In addition, we learn the British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith. We support our young people in knowing that they are valuable and valued members of society.

The Sixth Form has a history of providing person centred programmes, pathways and provisions and is also committed to working with students and their families to establish appropriate progression routes when students leave. We are very proud of our students and what they achieve.

Our students have opportunities to gain high quality nationally recognised qualifications and awards which support the development of independence. These include the OCR Life and Living Qualifications, literacy and numeracy qualifications. Qualifications are available at Entry Level 1, Entry Level 2 and Entry Level 3.

Students may also follow a bespoke package towards individually chosen qualifications.

The Sixth Form run an exciting range of Enrichment activities on a Wednesday afternoon and take many responsibilities for jobs around the school, as well as going out into our local community for work experience opportunities.
