The Sixth Form is not only about work. It is also about developing qualities of leadership, showing initiative and the practising of management skills, all of which are much sought after by employers in today’s world.

We believe that Pitsford provides a unique opportunity to develop these talents and we will encourage you to do so. It might be that you are developing musical, dramatic or sporting skills to a high standard; it might be that you are working for the higher levels of the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. In addition you will get the opportunity to organise house and school activities. For your own personal development it is important that excellence and high achievement in one or more fields are aimed at. These are also positive qualities which make you stand out from other applicants when you apply for higher education or employment.

A good portfolio of interests and achievements is also essential: computer literacy, communication skills, leadership qualities and initiative can be as important as academic qualifications.
