The Becket Sixth

The Becket Sixth is one of the largest A level Sixth Forms in Nottinghamshire, and comprises well over 250 students drawn not only from the Becket School, but also from a wide variety of state and independent schools in the county and beyond.

Due to our academic success at Year 11 and also the strong supportive ethos of our school many internal students make the decision to continue their learning at The Becket School. In most years we have about two thirds of our Year 11 cohort staying on into our Sixth Form. We also welcome students who join us for the first time in Sixth Form. Each individual student brings a richness to the community and we hope that the views expressed by our students convey the welcoming and pleasant yet purposeful atmosphere of the Becket Sixth.
