Southmoor Academy is a really important partner of Sandhill and we are working together on a range of projects to really get those vital improvements. But what happens after pupils leave Sandhill View?
The Sixth Form has got off to a roaring start with a range of valuable subjects taught by a team of highly skilled and experienced teachers. Our first set of results have been very promising and the first cohort of students are expressing very high levels ofsatisfaction with their time at The Sixth Form.
Our first set of year 13 results and our second set of year 12 grades together show all the hard work of the last two years paying off. Not only have we got a the highest pass rate for the city of sunderland across both years, but 59% of our last year 13s left with at least one A*-B grade, and two students left us with A*A*A!
While our year 13s go on to courses at universities including Durham, Newcastle and Kings College London, to study subjects from History to Computer Science, the year 12s will dwell on a superb set of AS grades. Whether it is the 71% gaining at least one A-B, the 11% hitting AAB in at least two facilitating subjects – well above last year’s average for Sunderland – or even the four students who came out with four As each, they are on track to make our second year even better than our first.
The Sixth Form at Southmoor will offer great opportunities to Sandhill View pupils. Not just with excellent academic opportunities and access to some of the top Russell Group Universities in the country but with the sense of warmth, community and fun that is fostered at our Sixth Form. With exciting academic outings, amazing team building adventures and fascinating guest speakers and visitors, there is just so much on offer!
We believe that The Sixth Form will soon be over-subscribed but it is our intention to give Sandhill pupils a guaranteed place if they can achieve the entry requirements. There is currently so much interest that we plan to run a shuttle bus between the schools so as to allow our pupils easy access to The Sixth Form.
