Sixth Form


Ark Elvin sixth form students are aspirational individuals who make the most of all opportunities to gain skills, abilities and experiences for university and career success. Our sixth form has a distinct community. We have small academic classes, tutor groups and enrichment opportunities which are tailored to the individual. Our students benefit from excellent pastoral care, university and careers guidance, and opportunities through the Ark network.

High expectations and aspirats are an important part of our ethos – we are seeking to prepare our students for professional life, either via university, school leaver programmes or the best Higher Apprenticeships. We therefore expect exemplary attendance, punctuality and student conduct, in accordance with our students’ place as role models for younger pupils. The sixth form dress code is formal, as per the expectations of a professional working environment.
