Dyke House Academy Sixth Form has a well established history of academy success and a reputation for excellence within Hartlepool, Below is an overview that highlights the exciting opportunities Dyke House Sixth Form has to offer.
Every student considering studying at Dyke House 6th Form will have a one-to-one meeting with a member of the 6th Form team to discuss their post-16 options. Subjects are blocked to ensure a ‘best-fit’ after students have made their choices.
Each student will be supported in their choices, ensuring they have a structured and challenging learning programme that supports their progression in line with their career plans.
Students can take a purely A Level pathway, a purely applied or vocational pathway or a mix of both.
Students who have not achieved a grade 4 at GCSE English or Maths will be enrolled onto the relevant GCSE course to re-sit the subject. They will have timetabled English and/or Maths lessons and will sit mock exams throughout the academic year.
All of our year 12 students complete one week of work experience during the summer term.
This is invaluable experience and gives students the opportunity to develop career choices and develop their skills in a real working environment.
Our students are expected to complete 20 hours of volunteering during year 12. Many of our students exceed this amount, with some going on to achieve more than 100 hours by the end of year 13.
Our new enrichment programme will allow students to develop their character and skills.
Students can take a Sports Leaders qualification or train to be a First Aider. Our senior students organise events in school and support younger students on Student Voice committees. Students can volunteer as peer mentors with younger students within a subject of their choice.
We have an experienced careers adviser through Careers Inc who offers post-16 progression advice from year 12. Students will have a number of 1:1 meetings, assemblies and tutorials on their options beyond 6th form. We actively encourage students to attend University and Apprenticeship open days and welcome many visitors to the school to talk to students on these areas.
