Studying Sixth Form
Thank you for your interest in joining BMA Sixth Form.
Some of you reading this will have been at Bobby Moore Academy since you were in Year 7, and some will be completely new to BMA and eager to find out what we offer. All of you will recognise the importance of post-16 education. It is an exciting time for students as they exercise increasing freedom and independence in their education. Your decision to apply or transition to the Sixth Form at BMA is incredibly important and I hope this guide will give you a sense of what life in our Sixth Form will involve, an understanding of why our provision is unrivalled, what we do and why we do it.
The Sixth Form is undoubtedly one of the most exciting times in a student’s education; it is a time of challenge and the opportunity to explore new ideas. It is a chance for students to specialise in the subjects that really interest them and the curriculum at BMA Sixth Form offers the chance to study in depth from a choice of twenty-one different subjects, including some which students may not have come across before.
I have unapologetically high expectations of our Sixth Form students; I want them to aspire to be more. Through our partnerships with a wide range of elite universities and world class providers, such as BBC Music, Sadlers Wells, UCL, we offer unrivalled opportunities for our Sixth Formers to aspire to be their very best.
Courage and Respect
Beyond the classroom, students will have the opportunity to engage in an exceptionally wide range of activities, whether it is in the Creative Arts, Performing Arts, Sport and Exercise, through co-curricular activities, Future Pathways preparation and the pastoral provision. We enable students to develop other skills that they will need at university or in their future careers by providing opportunities for the management of younger pupils and involvement in the running of the Sixth Form, as well as developing teamwork, leadership, networking and presentation skills.
