‘ASPIRING for Excellence’ is the motto of students at Codsall Community High School’s Sixth Form Centre and justifiably so as they are one of the highest achieving sixth forms in Staffordshire
Results this year continue their high level of success with a 100% pass rate for all A-level and BTEC Higher Level courses.
Codsall Sixth Form students are proud of their achievements and are continuously thriving to fulfil their potential, whether that is personally or academically.
This comes through the many excellent opportunities for students to participate in, providing a broad balance of challenging and successful experiences which give crucial stepping stones for life beyond Key Stage 5.
Students benefit from an incredibly supportive learning environment from both peers and teachers, who are always on standby to ensure that our students’ potential is reached. Additionally, a further support network of specialist sixth form staff are on hand to guide and support.
Vice Student President Leah believes the support she receives is one of the centre’s special qualities. She said: “Codsall High Sixth Form has always proved itself to be a safe space; a space where I can feel accepted and understood. This sixth form creates a sense of belonging and for me that is irreplaceable and hard to find.
Executive Headteacher Alun Harding is a dedicated advocate of the centre and its students. “At Codsall Sixth Form we aim to educate the whole person and the young people who come to our sixth form are fantastic examples of the confident, selfless and hardworking people we aspire for them to be.”
There are always opportunities for students to take responsibility for their individual learning in order to increase their independence. This can be through enrichment where students learn more about their own capabilities within a different environment, or by taking responsibility in managing their time appropriately during free periods.
“The sixth form at Codsall provides many opportunities to take responsibility for our learning and development within a supportive environment. This approach enables us to increase our independence and learn more about our own capabilities,” says Vice President James McLachlan.

“From a personal perspective, I found my time supporting open evening events, where I engaged with year 13s, particularly rewarding as this has enabled me to create relationships and provide insights to both students and parents regarding our school.”
Student President Phoebe endorses the opportunities Codsall Sixth Form Centre offers its students. “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Codsall Sixth Form, especially in my role as Sixth Form Student President. I have developed not only my academic skills, but also my personal skills, preparing me for the world ahead of me. There is nowhere I would have rather spent my final years in formal education, and I can only give credit to the staff, and the students I have spent my time with here for that.”
Head of Sixth Form Mrs E Mayor is proud of the centre. “Life at Codsall Sixth Form is exciting, challenging, evolving and ultimately very rewarding. We offer a fantastic curriculum, teaching and support to our students and are proud of what we have to offer.”
