Welcome from the Head of Sixth Form


Welcome to St Oscar Romero Catholic School Sixth Form. I am delighted to be writing this as the first Head of Sixth Form at St Oscar Romero Catholic School. Having spent most of my professional career in 11-18 schools and successfully taught A level for many years, I am extremely excited about the Sixth Form opening.

At Romero’s we seek to ensure that all we do is driven by our core values and mission statement to: “Aspire not to have more, but to be more”, so that every young person achieve their true potential.

In our Sixth Form, we will live this out in three ways:

Academic excellence: Sixth Formers can expect outstanding teaching and learning in their chosen subjects. We will ensure that all students have access to bespoke academic support to enable them to reach their full potential in their A-Levels or vocational courses. There will also be opportunities for students to be challenged and pursue their passions through the Extended Project Qualification. We will ensure that we give our Sixth Formers time to pursue their passions within their lessons and also beyond through our enrichment programme.

Outstanding Pastoral care: We will have outstanding pastoral provision and care from tutors, teaching staff and support staff. All Sixth Form students will be ‘known and loved’ by all of the staff at St Oscar Romero. The Sixth Form will feel more like a family, much like our main school.

Spiritual flourishing: As a Catholic School, we will place Jesus at the heart of the school, ensure that every young person’s inherent dignity is respected and their God-given potential is achieved. We will have opportunities to reflect on the big questions in life and consider how God’s love and wisdom can impact the decisions we make. Our Sixth Formers will become fellow leaders in our school and be outstanding role models for our younger students.
Romero’s students will be equipped with the skills they need to be successful in life in their chosen path, and there will be lots of opportunities to take on leadership roles across the school.

I look forward to meeting you in person soon and showing you all that we can offer you through your Key Stage 5 study. Meanwhile, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us with any questions you might have about our exciting new Key Stage 5 offer.

Mr Noye

Deputy Headteacher and Head of Sixth Form.
