Welcome to our Sixth Form
Harris Academy Ockendon’s motto of “Enjoy being the best you can be” continues in our sixth form. We are focussed on supporting students to achieve their very best in whichever career path they choose. Whilst many of our students do go on to university, our partnership with businesses and has also enabled several students to secure prestigious apprenticeship placements.
One of the top reasons our students give for choosing to come to our sixth form is high quality pastoral care, guidance and support structure from our sixth form team. Daily seminar time with academic tutors, personal coach and small class sizes mean that students are extremely well supported by tutors and teachers who know them well.
Students at Harris Academy Ockendon are encouraged to enhance their academic qualifications through a wide variety of extra-curricular opportunities including volunteering, mentoring, work experience, and Cambridge Pre-U GPR courses.
Our thriving Sixth Form offers everything our students love about their education in an environment where they are treated as young adults. Our sixth formers are role models to our younger students.
We offer a wide range of subject choices to enable students to pursue a path towards their chosen career, further training or university. We ensure every student who wants to go to university does so, and all other students have a successful future ahead of them.
The extra-curricular opportunities provided, alongside excellent and meaningful qualifications, help build our students’ CVs and give them engaging topics to highlight as they write personal statements for university or apply for jobs and apprenticeships.
