On Thursday 20th September Tresham's Principal, Stuart Wesselby, opened the college's new 6a Sixth Form Academy which will provide A Levels in refurbished facilities .
Tresham's new 6a Sixth Form Academy now offers a total of 21 A Levels including new subjects in Physics, Geography, Graphic Design, Drama & Theatre Studies, Physical Education, ICT and Spanish. The concept of 6a is to ensure students select the correct combination of A level subjects that will enhance their chances of gaining a place on their chosen degree. The A level subjects have been grouped into professional pathways to get students to consider their future employment route and the degree that will open a door to their chosen career.
Students of all abilities will be welcomed at the 6a Sixth Form Academy with the addition of our Pre A Level programme which is being offered as a one year intensive programme for those who want to join 6a but fall short of the entry requirements for the A Level pathway they wish to follow.
The Honours Programme will also be available for academic high flyers whose GCSE results are exceptionally good. Students who gain at least five A* and A passes at GCSE will be enrolled onto the Honours Programme which includes a stretch and challenge program to help young people gain excellent grades.
Stuart Wesselby, Principal at Tresham said:
"I am delighted to have opened Tresham's 6a Sixth Form Academy at our Kettering campus which will provide young people and adults with a dedicated study area and support for A Level study and Higher Education programmes. The 6a Sixth Form Academy also includes our Peter Jones Enterprise Academy which offers specific training for entrepreneurs who are the employers of the future."
The 6a Sixth Form Academy will be providing A Levels in the following subjects:
