Sixth Form

Welcome from Mr Macleod

Director of Sixth Form

Your choice of Post 16 education is a crucial one and at The Forest Academy Sixth Form our aim is to deliver a high quality, personalised education, alongside excellent pastoral support, enabling you to succeed both here and in the world beyond. I am extremely proud of our Sixth Form and its students and look forward to welcoming you.

Recognised by OFSTED in 2013 as ‘good’ and having ‘improved dramatically’ in all areas, we are a medium-sized, rapidly expanding and fully inclusive Sixth Form that caters for post-16 students, regardless of their background or ability. We offer an impressive range of ‘A’ Level, BTEC and re-sit GCSE courses that ensure all learners progress to university, employment or training, according to their needs, suitability and preference.

As a Sixth Form operating within the Beal Multi-Academy Trust, our students are proud to be part of our community and achieve great success here. They say that we are ‘caring and friendly’, ‘more like a family’, offer a ‘positive and purposeful environment’ with ‘brilliant teachers who will do anything for you’. Most importantly, for the third successive year, our students have achieved the highest grades in the school’s history.
