Sixth Form Prospectus
The Ecclesbourne School Sixth Form not
only provides fantas:c educa:on but it
goes the extra mile and offers exci:ng
enrichment and extra-‐curricular
opportuni:es for all students. These
roles are incredibly fun and rewarding,
but it helps you develop important skills
and quali:es needed in the wider world.
Work experience week allows you to
experience an industry or profession
that interests you. This is excep:onally
helpful as it guides you towards your
poten:al career path.
The Ecclesbourne School Sixth Form is a
truly enjoyable experience. You can rely
on uncondi:onal support from members
of staff who will help you reach your
targets and encourage you to be the
best you can be. You will make new
friends, broaden your knowledge and
create memories that will last forever.
If I could give you one piece of advice, it
would be to live in the moment and
enjoy every minute. Take every
opportunity you are given and have fun!
Sixth Form promises to be the best years
of your life.
