Welcome to our Sixth Form

High Storrs has a thriving, successful Sixth Form. Judged as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted (Nov 2013), we are committed to providing the highest standard of education and a positive and motivating learning environment for all students.

We offer a learning environment which is second to none, including modern study spaces, specialist classrooms and state of the art performance spaces. It is the perfect environment to deepen your study of subjects you studied at GCSE or to embark upon new courses.

The Sixth Form has a uniquely supportive ethos. Students are stretched and challenged, but in a positive way, catering for individual needs and abilities. We believe that every student can, and should, achieve success. We work closely with parents, especially if concerns arise and when particular praise is deserved.

But there is much more to Sixth Form life than academic achievement. Students enjoy all the opportunities of a well-resourced school, with a full package of extra curricular activities. We also prepare students for higher education, employment or further training, so they can play a full and responsible role in the community. Our committed and talented staff foster and develop high aspirations, helping nurture our students to achieve their goals.

We look forward to a long and productive partnership with students and your families.

A Different Style of Learning

The approach to learning is very different in the Sixth Form. You will have made a positive choice to continue your studies in a Sixth Form setting, and as a result you are more self-motivated, studying subjects in which you have a real interest.



To ensure a smooth transition into the Sixth Form, students discuss their options with staff before experiencing a preliminary "taster" course in July. Throughout your time at High Storrs you are encouraged to seek the help of Form Tutors and Sixth Form staff, particularly in the early weeks when things can seem very different and new. We want you to succeed and reach your potential - we will support and help you to achieve this.

At High Storrs, we offer you the opportunity to study in a hardworking, academic environment. You will be taught by qualified and experienced teachers who understand the demands of Sixth Form study and supported by our dedicated Sixth Form team. The majority of our own Year 11 students stay on in the Sixth Form and we welcome students from schools from all over Sheffield and beyond - adding a much valued new dimension to create a thriving, diverse Sixth Form.

Our Sixth form is “outstanding”. That’s not just our opinion – it’s the official judgement from Ofsted (November 2013)

Quote from a year 12 form about developing a love for your subjects:

“Life is interesting! We shouldn’t be widening our knowledge as a chore but appreciate the world for what it is truly worth, and our desire for learning will grow naturally!”
