Sixth Form

We are delighted to welcome you to Thomas Becket VI Form

As leaders of Northamptonshire’s only Catholic Sixth Form, we are proud to welcome you to Thomas Becket Catholic School.

It is an exciting time to join Thomas Becket VI Form, we are continuing to grow and have established ourselves as one of the most vibrant parts of our school community. We are extremely ambitious and fully intend to make all our students’ experiences the very best. 

We have fostered a community that is rooted in love and respect for each other,  aligning itself with the wider school ethos in that the students are at the heart of everything we do; and this is epitomised by the pastoral support they receive. Integral to this are the relationships we establish not only with our students but with parents and guardians as we recognise the importance and impact this has.   
 
At Thomas Becket VI Form we offer you the close levels of support and monitoring that only a school Sixth Form can; valuing every student as an individual and motivating and encouraging them to pursue academic excellence, whilst also acknowledging that VI Form is not just about academia but about developing the whole person, mentally, spiritually and as role models and citizens within modern society.
The expectations we have of you are that you will work hard, be ambitious and engage with all of the opportunities that are offered to you. 
 
We are incredibly proud of all our students and endeavour to ensure that every student who leaves our community has achieved their ambitions and is fully prepared for whatever their next steps in life may be. 
 

Courses

We have three main pathways of study, along with our Core Learning (see below on our Pathway Wheel). Our smaller class numbers enable us to take a very personalised and flexible approach to your post-16 choices at Becket VI. Together, we will work with you to select the perfect combination of courses tailored to your talents, goals and aspirations.

Enrichment and Extra-Curricular Opportunities

We provide our students with opportunities to participate and engage in fundraising activities, community initiatives, and as mentors in key subjects for our lower school students. Through these enrichment opportunities, we enable them to develop leadership skills, explore and discover new talents whilst positively impacting the lives of others. Our Thomas Becket VI Form aligns itself with the wider school ethos in that the students are at the heart of everything we do and this is epitomised by the pastoral support they receive.

 

 

Preparing you for the Future

Our students are guided and advised about their Post 18 options, coached through the application processes for University, apprenticeships, and the world of work and mentored based upon specific areas of need. This is also the foundation for enabling students who have varied prior attainment to find feasible routes into becoming a member of our VI Form. We are incredibly proud of all our students and endeavour to ensure that every young person who leaves our community has achieved their ambitions and is fully prepared for whatever their next steps in life may be.
