Dedicated Sixth Form Facilities

Our choice of facilities enables you to become an independent learner; you can study or socialise your way.

Sixth Form Library and IT Suite

Sixth Form Library and IT Suite

The Learning Resource Centre is the focal point for independent study and offers everything you need to prepare for your assessments throughout your time with us and prepare you for future study. You will find subject textbooks and resources, journals, newspapers, foreign language DVDs and over 50 computers with printing and photocopying facilities. The range of LRC Study Guides accessed through the VLE – FROG – will guide you through essential study skills for university, including referencing and citation.
Sixth Form Common Room

Common rooms and study spaces

The common room is a large area where students can relax, socialise or study. Lockers are available for students and light refreshments are served in the common room over the lunchtime period. For those who need additional support with the independent learning approach that Sixth Form demands, additional supervised study rooms are available. At the start of the day, students are expected to arrive at 8:40am for registration. Afterwards, if free, students are expected to be working silently from 08:55am to 10:35am in either the common room, library or breakout space. This is part of our ‘start the day right’ ethos.
Fitness Gym

Sport@Gosforth and Fitness Gym

Sport@Gosforth is a large facility for Sixth Formers to use in their free time. Here there are additional lockers and plenty of seating areas for group work or socialising. It is also a dedicated café for our Sixth Formers, serving hot and cold meals, including vegetarian options. It is a great space for students to catch up
with friends over a coffee and snack. Sixth Formers are also
given a free membership to our state-of-the-art, air-conditioned
fitness suite, with exclusive use at select times of the day.
