Welcome to the Sixth Form Academy


The Urswick School Sixth Form is a small provision offering excellent opportunities for students to progress to the University of their choice. Primarily designed for existing members of year 11, we also welcome applications from external applicants.

Sixth Form students benefit from excellent facilities in our award winning new building. Most lessons start at 9.30am and finish at 4pm. The library is open until 5pm.

Alps outstanding: 2017 results

The OFSTED accredited organisation ALPS (Advanced Level Performance System) evaluates the data of school and Sixth Form Colleges. Each school is then given a score in terms of how much progress Sixth Form students have made from their different starting points and the effectiveness of the teaching students receive. In 2017 Urswick’s ALPS Score in respect of year 12 AS Level and Year 13 A Level places The Urswick School Sixth Form Academy in the top 10% of Schools nationally. This means our Sixth Form is graded Outstanding.
