Welcome to 6th Form

Head of Sixth Form: Mr P. Chapman


Our sixth form combines the strengths of the three schools; Ferrers, Huxlow and Rushden, who work together post-16 to offer a wide range of courses and opportunities to all students in the East Northamptonshire area.

We have an excellent tradition of examination success in A-Level, BTEC and Applied courses. We are proud of our students outstanding achievements. We feature in The Independent’s Top 100 Comprehensive Schools at A Level and are listed in The Northamptonshire Telegraph as one of the county’s top providers at A Level.

However, we strongly believe that being in the Sixth Form is not just about gaining academic qualifications. All our students follow a wide-ranging PSHE, careers, general studies and enrichment programme, and we are proud of our national recognition for post-16 citizenship. This enables all our Year 12 students to play an active role in the community. Social activities, residentials, public speaking, peer mentoring, work experience, University visits, theatre trips and sporting competitions are a few examples of the things our students have taken part in this year.

Whether you choose to join us for one, two or even three years, we aim to provide you with a high-quality education to suit your needs. We firmly believe that students who choose to study here will enjoy their time with us, and will feel valued, challenged and supported in their ambition to achieve the best they can. We offer all the advantages of being in a supportive school sixth form coupled with the challenges of a large and vibrant Academy community.
