Sixth Form Curriculum

Many of our students stay on roll at Nightingale Community Academy for the Sixth Form. The school is able to offer a full time provision for students, or they may choose to study a course at a local college for a number of days each week and attend Nightingale for pastoral support or for extra help with English, maths or coursework.

The full time offer is comprised from a combination of the following qualifications, tailored to the needs of the student:

English and maths GCSE resits (some students may be sitting these exams for the first time if they have not previously been entered) or Functional Skills qualifications where these are more appropriate to the student’s needs and abilities.

They will also follow courses in life skills and employability skills and can work towards ASDAN qualifications in these.

Students who are with us full time can also choose from the following pathways:

The Care of Small Animals / Land Based Studies (BTEC Award, Certificate or Diploma)

Catering & Hospitality (BTEC Award, Certificate or Diploma)

Construction (BTEC Award, Certificate or Diploma)

Mechanics (Engineering BTEC Award)

Performing Arts (BTEC Award, Certificate or Diploma)

We are working towards all students being able to have weekly work experience placements which are linked to their chosen pathway as a part of the sixth form offer.

We’re excited to begin our partnership with Orchard Hill College Academy Trust, together working towards positive outcomes for our students
