Welcome to Boldon School Sixth Form (Post 16)

A word from our Head Teacher PIC9

It is our vision to provide to you, as our Post-16 students, vocational courses that you want, delivered well, so that you can build practical skills for employment at the same time as developing academic abilities for your future progression.

We commit ourselves to ensuring that you have access to resources and  excellent teaching which will support you in achieving your goals. Our teachers will challenge you to think for yourself with a strong emphasis on active learning in the classroom, workshop, salon or sports centre.

Boldon School has a proud tradition  of providing excellent pastoral care and we know that on joining year 12 you are ready to grow and become more independent, it is our job to support you in doing this.

We welcome applications from external students who wish to join us in September 2016 as well as those who are existing students at Boldon School.

Mr I Noble, Acting Head Teacher

Our Facilities

We have fantastic modern facilities that provide an excellent environment for our courses, whether you are working in a practical lesson or requiring quiet study time. Each vocational area has an appropriate learning space—i.e. sports centre & multi purpose all weather pitches; art studio; IT suite/workshop; hair dressing and beauty salons. All classrooms and the Post-16 study room have IT facilities .

As Post-16 Students you are welcome to use your common room throughout the day when not in timetabled lessons. Food and drink is available from the Bistro which offers a wide selection of hot and cold drinks, snacks and meals. .

You are welcome to come and visit us, chat to staff and have a look around. To arrange a visit or find out more, contact Ingrid Moir, our Post-16 Coordinator, by telephone 0191 5362176 or email Ingrid.moir@boldonschool.org.uk.
