Welcome to The Sixth Form

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 will be entering its 5th year in September and the team are immensely proud of how far the faculty has grown and developed over this short period.

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 student from the application process onwards. On this website you will find our welcome and information pack, alongside the subject specific summer 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. Our contact details can be found on the final page of the pack.

Mr Christopher Dixon
