Opinions from our Sixth Form students.
The facilities provided in the Sixth Form are excellent, including the Study Centre, which is very useful for independent study in a quiet environment. My tutor has been very helpful in guiding me through the UCAS application process and has helped me to focus my degree options, so that they are applicable for my chosen career path.
The Taster Day was very useful as I was able to try out subjects in advance which made choosing my courses very easy. The school has provided outstanding help with Higher Education. It has been crucial for my development throughout the year.
Highcliffe Sixth Form is an enjoyable, stimulating place in which to learn and grow, but what really makes Highcliffe stand out is the teachers. The step up to A Level from GCSE is undeniably challenging but I was able to cope with this thanks to the overwhelming support from staff. They have been continually encouraging, understanding and helpful throughout my time at Highcliffe. The mature, adult environment which is encouraged within the Sixth Form has left me feeling prepared and excited to embark on the next stages of my academic studies.
During my time at Highcliffe, the wealth of opportunities I have seen presented to us as students, to help further both our personal and academic growth has always amazed me. The combination of encouragement and support from teachers has created an excellent working environment that has not only helped me mature academically, but also on a personal level, so that my experiences have left me feeling well prepared to move on to the next stage of my studies.
I joined the Sixth Form from another school, but I found it easy to settle in as everyone was very friendly and I made lots of new friends on the Induction trip to Calshot Activities Centre. I chose to study at Highcliffe Sixth Form because it felt like the right place for me because of the variety of extra-curricular activities, the brilliant facilities and the welcoming atmosphere.
I chose to join Highcliffe Sixth Form from another school because I liked the facilities, such as the recording studio, gym and café, the atmosphere and the level of support from teachers. They push us to achieve the very best we can.
