Sixth Form

Pupils at The Link Secondary School often choose to stay on after their Year 11 studies and join our Sixth Form in order to prepare for their adult lives. We also welcome pupils from other schools who meet our admission criteria.

The Sixth Form provides for pupils who wish to access mainstream courses and who continue to require support for their speech, language and communication needs. As with the main school, pupils are taught in small classes and are supported by experienced professionals to facilitate pupils’ access to the curriculum and to ensure that their learning needs are met.

A core academic curriculum is provided to all pupils in the Sixth Form, as well as The Access Programme which includes social skills, social communication, employability skills, and independent living skills. Speech and language therapy is an integral part of the Sixth Form provision.

Pupil life in the Sixth Form is largely about the transition to adulthood. Pupils in the Sixth Form do not wear school uniform. They have their own learning and social spaces within the secondary school.

Pupils work towards achieving qualifications in mathematics, English and ICT, which allow pupils to develop important skills for daily life and employment that they can apply to real-life situations.

Our pupils also have weekly access to a variety of vocational courses offered at Nescot, our local FE college partner. The college is situated in Epsom, a short minibus trip from the school. Pupils attend the college courses appropriate to their level of ability and their interests.

CURRICULUM

The Curriculum offer for Sixth Form pupils includes:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Information Communication Technology (ICT)
  • Life Skills (Citizenship and PHSE)
  • Art
  • Design & Technology
  • Access
  • A College Vocational Placement (one day per week)

There is a lovely feeling at school, it is always very positive, warm and welcoming – Parent Survey 2018
