About Post 16





At Sir Herbert Leon Academy Sixth Form we pride ourselves in helping and supporting our students to pursue their area of interest, whilst developing their confidence and self-esteem. We also commit to ensuring that our students achieve the best possible outcome so that they can go onto become well rounded, successful and happy individuals.


"Post 16 has a real strength in ensuring students taking vocational qualifications perform above the national expected levels of progress. In addition to this, students taking A’ Levels last year made progress which was in line with national expectations. This shows the school is moving in the right direction to provide Post 16 students with a good Key Stage 5 experience." - Jane Herriman, Executive Principal


Currently there are over 200 students on roll in the Sixth Form and they travel in from all over the area to study and access the great facilities that are on offer including a gym, swimming pool and Theatre.

With discounted gym memberships and theatre tickets, students are able to take full advantage of our facilities.

Already this year, 17 of our Post 16 students have achieved places at University, this is already up from the16 last year.

Many of our students also enjoy attending professional work placements as part of their course.  Not only does this offer them enrichment opportunities but also a taster into the world of work.
