At The Priory Witham Academy we pride ourselves on the maturity, responsibility and willingness of our students. With this in mind we endeavour to foster an atmosphere where students can develop their independence and advance their prospects for future life.
Over recent years The Priory Witham Sixth Form has built a reputation for being a particularly caring, trusting and friendly environment. We offer 16 vocational and traditional academic courses, all taught by experienced and specialist members of staff.
The Sixth Form Team is made up of: Head of Year, Sixth Form Administrator, Tutors, Pupil Support Assistant, all of whom are dedicated professionals, experienced in providing support when choosing University or College courses, planning careers and writing personal statements.
Both staff and students are justifiably proud of their dedicated Sixth Form area which includes a common room, study area, teaching facilities and Sixth Form garden which can be used for relaxation.
We are strongly committed to providing all students with the widest possible range of experiences. To achieve this we provide opportunities to support others in activities such as Paired Reading, Mentoring, Teaching Scheme, Prefects, Head Boy/Girl & Deputies, Academy Council Representatives and Assistant House Leaders.
We are keen to accommodate the ideas for extracurricular activities of any of our students and we give them every encouragement to organise and run these events. In the past students have organised paint balling, white water rafting, snowboarding, skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing, high ropes, fashion show, badminton club, cheese club, chess club, indoor rowing competition, and table top sale.
Where appropriate we would encourage vocational students to gain as much relevant work experience as possible. We currently endeavour to provide students of Health & Social Care and Horticulture with work experience within the academy.
Students at The Priory Witham Sixth Form find a challenging, friendly and exhilarating atmosphere which equips all who study here with the qualifications and experiences necessary to take the next exciting steps on their path through life.
