Welcome to our Sixth Form


We are incredibly proud of our Sixth Form and the superb quality of education we provide to students in Gateshead and beyond. Whatever their background, all our students progress to prestigious universities, including Oxford and Cambridge, or high value vocational and professional training, including advanced apprenticeships and degree apprenticeships.

Although many of our students have attended Cardinal Hume in Year 11, we are an inclusive sixth form with a mission of service to the whole community, and every year receive a substantial number of applications from students who currently attend other schools. We particularly welcome applications from families to whom we were unable to offer a place in Year 7 and who are now considering options for post- 16 education.

Our sixth form in underpinned by the Catholic Ethos of the school and its motto: Fide, Labore, Caritate, which means By Faith, Hard Work and Kindness. These values are very much in evidence in the Sixth Form, where an experienced and dedicated team of staff looks after our students and guides, challenges and encourages them throughout their journey. All students are recognised as individuals and achieve ambitious goals.

Our Year 13 graduates this year recommend our Sixth Form because ‘it has high quality teaching, continuous support from subject teachers within a friendly, social environment’ with pastoral staff ‘that really care about your personal goals, not just your grades’ and ‘they know you on a personal level, know your strengths and weaknesses, keeping you on track with your work and up-to-date with your progress ’.

We value our Sixth Form students and are able to afford them many privileges to recognise their contributions as young adult ambassadors to the school and wider community.
