Welcome from the Head of Sixth Form
Hello and welcome to David Nieper Academy Sixth Form Centre,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting our website. The Sixth Form team are immensely proud of how far the faculty has grown and developed over this short period since opening.
As a student at the David Nieper Academy Sixth Form Centre, you will experience a learning environment that encourages and develops independent thought, self-discipline, motivation, and confidence.
We understand that making the transition from GCSE to post-16 study is difficult for both students and parents. With this in mind, we have created a transition programme which fully supports students from the application process onwards. On this page you will find our ‘Welcome and Information Pack’, alongside subject specific learning booklets. Downloading and engaging with these documents are the first steps in a successful transition period. As well as this, students will also benefit from a supportive form tutor and form time programme, parents’ evenings, study skills advice, careers appointments and more.
The most unique and perhaps exciting part of your sixth form journey will be your participation in our employer engagement programme. The programme is designed to complement your classroom learning and offers you real life work experiences based on your interests, passions, and career goals.
Below is our ‘Welcome and Information Pack’ which provides more details regarding all aspects of Sixth Form life. If you have any questions, please do get in touch. My email is below, and other important contacts can be found on the last page of the pack.
Mr Christopher Dixon
