A welcome from Mr MacLeod – Vice Principal of BSF

We are BSF: one sixth form – across two sites – offering three pathways to success.

Our students are proud of their school community and strive to fulfil their promise and potential. We staff all work together across our sixth form family to provide the best academic and pastoral support we can, so our young people can be the best they can.

Results are outstanding, with almost half of all A level grades A*-B and a pass rate of 99%. 88% of our young people go to university – including one in four who take up their place at the most competitive and high tariff universities. with all others on secured destinations on apprenticeships, employment or other education pathways.  Most importantly, our young people are confident, caring and well-rounded individuals and they make us all proud to work at Beal Sixth Form.

At Beal Sixth Form, our broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum enables students to build a successful future. Our academic pathways are flexible and aspirational and our personal development curricula inspires our young people to develop their skills, build their character and achieve top grades to facilitate successful progression routes.

The curriculum works in conjunction with Beal Sixth Form’s ethos and values. It aims to improve the life chances and social capital of all learners, through an inclusive approach to the curriculum and dynamic teaching and learning. The curriculum is well designed to provide a broad range of courses and pathways to allow progression routes for all students to maximise success. It offers 38 academic and vocational courses across three pathways, including our unique Level 2 three year pathway with a foundation year for students who have yet to achieve a 4 in GCSE English and Maths, enabling them to build their skills, linguistic and numerical competence so that they are ready for level 3 in year 2. The curriculum prepares every student to access a university course or a professional career through our personal development and professional skills programme. These create opportunities for students to develop leadership skills through engagement with higher education and the professional workplace.

Beal Sixth Form provides students with opportunities to take the curriculum beyond the classroom through participating in extracurricular and enrichment activities to create independent and creative learners.  The curriculum fosters the development of students’ personal growth, health and wellbeing preparing them to become effective citizens and make a positive contribution to wider British society. Most importantly the curriculum enables students to lead happy, fulfilled lives and to develop their passion for learning.
