Welcome to Monkseaton High Sixth Form

The vast majority of our year 11 students opt to stay with us for their Post-16 Education, and a large number of students join us in year 12 from other schools – and it is easy to see why! Our results in sixth form improve year on year. Our 2016 results were our best ever. On our A Level courses there was an 100% pass rate with 70% of grades at A Level being A*-Cs. Our performance on our vocational courses was also impressive, with the average grade being a Distinction+ – significantly exceeding the standard nationally. Most impressively on our A Level and BTEC courses students performed better than they were predicted to, a statistic that reflects some massive personal achievements.
Sixth Form Success

Sixth Form is not just about academic success, but about supporting young people to be the best that they can be. That is why – in addition to excellent teaching – students at Monkseaton High School Sixth Form can be assured of first class pastoral support and exciting extra-curricular opportunities.

As a result of these, 100 per cent of our leavers this year went on to the destinations of their choice. These destinations ranged from studying Medicine at Queen Mary University in London to training in Primary Education, to winning football scholarships in the USA. Loving learning, excellent teaching, pastoral support and diversity of opportunity all combine to allow students to access the next steps of their choice, whatever those might be.
