Life at SHS Sixth Form


Entering VIth Form represents far more than simply choosing to further your education. This exciting part of your life marks some of the first choices you will make as an adult and it is important that your learning environment recognises and respects your independence.

At The Stourport VIth Form College we not only aim to support you in your choices but to also provide an infrastructure that provides the right level of guidance that will enable your full potential to be reached.

The Stourport VIth Form provides a college feel within an outstanding high school, and students enjoy the more mature and self-reliant atmosphere it creates. Each student receives high quality learning experiences, combining academic success with the opportunity to develop skills, character and individuality.

A new Sixth Form building opened in September 2017

Having secured a grant of £3.5 million from the government all of our students benefit from amazing new science labs, ICT and performance spaces alongside first class social, dining and study spaces. These developments provide a learning environment that complements the high quality of our Post 16 curriculum and teaching.

Our building supports the highest standard of technology to maximise learning opportunities. Moreover, mobile technology will continue to be used within lessons to provide innovative learning support and independence.

Outstanding facilities

All VIth Form students benefit from the fantastic facilities within the school including a new sports hall, fully equipped fitness gym, athletics track, all-weather pitches, netball dome and music recording studio.  

Supervised study

A dedicated silent study area is staffed throughout each day with expert support on hand to provide guidance, motivation and inspiration to help you fulfil your potential.

Enrichment Programme

The VIth Form Enrichment Programme is available to all Year 12 and 13.  We also encourage our VIth Form students to lead the activities and mentor the students in Year 7 to 11 to develop important leadership skills as well as offering support and guidance for our younger students.

We also offer a programme with the Worcester Warriors. The Worcester Warriors DiSE Programme is a rugby model for talented 16 to 18 year olds based at The Stourport High School & VIth Form College. The programme provides players with the best opportunity to succeed in the next step of their life, be it professional rugby, university, an apprenticeship or full-time employment.

Our annual May Ball is a highlight in the school calendar. A wide variety of competitive and recreational sports are on offer plus the chance to take part in school productions, music events and a whole host of enrichment activities. 

We are sure that you will enjoy a personal experience where friendliness and support are teamed with challenge and high expectations. Please feel free to contact us at any time for further information. We’d love to meet you in person to offer advice or answer any queries for you.
