Sixth Form

Our Sixth Form aims to provide you with the support and guidance required to help continue your studies into Higher Education and beyond.

Ysgol Uwchradd Caergybi is currently the second-largest Sixth Form on Anglesey.

Our aim is to enable students to develop academically, vocationally and to become mature, responsible citizens.

Over the years, our Sixth Form students have brought distinction to the school in a wide range of fields. We expect every student to be committed to their studies, to be responsible young leaders within the pupil community and to enjoy the new experiences available in the Sixth Form.

We participate in a shared provision model with all the other secondary schools and colleges on the island. This means we can offer a host of partnership courses that pupils can access across 5 secondary schools as well as the subjects we run in-house.  You can find the list of shared provision courses available to you in the Consortium's prospectus which is published each year and is available below. Advice and guidance is also readily available from teachers and tutors who you have already built up a working relationship with.

It is our target to ensure that all learners are given the opportunity to succeed at their A Levels and are provided with the guidance to continue their learning to University and beyond.

We invest a lot of our time to ensure that learners are provided with the support needed to complete effective UCAS applications, and receive the advice they need when choosing Higher Education courses. We are confident in our track record with UCAS admissions, and annually ensure our learners gain places on their first choice of University courses.  We also have a strong relationship with Oxbridge level Universities, and have enjoyed great success with our pupils going on to study at these institutions.

Many of our A Level courses require entry requirements; please see our latest prospectus for up to date information regarding these along with the latest subject option columns.  Applications open annually in January and are collected electronically; these digital applications are shared in Year 11 assemblies.

Entry to the 6th form is not automatic but is an application process. Attaining a place is dependent on pupils having consistently demonstrated high standards of attitude, conduct, attendance and punctuality whilst in Key Stage 4.

On entry into the Sixth Form, every pupil is provided with a review date in the first term in order to provide enough evidence to judge whether they are displaying the correct attitude and mind-set for A Level studies. If the commitment is not evident then the Headteacher will make a decision whether the pupil is invited to continue to study with us.

The Head of Sixth Form, Mr Steffan Taylor will continually monitor a pupils progress over the two years. If the performance of a pupil causes teachers concern, Mr Taylor will coordinate a parental meeting to discuss their future or set measurable targets for the pupil to improve.
