Kellett School’s Sixth Form experience has been carefully planned to meet the needs of the 21st Century and the entry requirements of universities and colleges worldwide.
Engagement in a rigorous academic programme, supported by The Sixth Form Core allows students the opportunity to develop attractive academic and personal profiles in preparation for the next stage of their education.
Whilst academic A Levels are at the very heart of what we offer, we also believe strongly in the development of Intellectual Curiosity. Intellectually curious people have a deep and persistent desire to know. They ask and seek answers to the “why” questions. They don’t stop asking at a surface level, but instead ask probing questions in order to peel back layers of explanation to get at the very essence of the ideas that are the foundation of a particular topic or issue. They are innovative, creative and imaginative.
As the well-known educationalist, Professor Ken Robinson notes….
”…Education is not a linear process of preparation for the future: it is about cultivating the talents and sensibilities through which we can live our best lives in the present and create the best futures for us all“
(Robinson, K. Out of our Minds, John Wiley and Sons June 2011, p10)
It is against this backdrop that we aim to develop a community of confident, life-long learners who will thrive as active members of local, national and international communities.
