Fallibroome Academy Sixth Form
With a long history of outstanding academic success you can be assured of the highest quality of teaching and guidance in the Sixth Form. Year on year our Sixth Form students achieve excellent results in public examinations taking them on to some of the most prestigious universities and courses in the world or most highly sought after jobs and school leaver programmes.
Outstanding success comes from more than just hard work and we are aware that at this most exciting time in a young adult’s life, it is important that each individual feels valued and is allowed to thrive and grow. The Fallibroome Academy Sixth Form offers an enviable package of excellent facilities, enrichment opportunities and Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance. We pride ourselves on our culture and ethos. A Level studies can be exacting and challenging and throughout the two years we provide support, care and guidance and an ‘open door’ policy to ensure that all our students feel looked after whilst also growing and developing as independent young people ready for the next stage in their lives.
I look forward to welcoming you to study with us or to respond to any questions and enquiries you may have.
