About the 6th Form
Our 6th Form students will be pushed to secure the best results they can whilst developing their own independence, so that they will continue to succeed along their chosen path.
Onslow St Audrey’s School has a successful, ever growing Sixth Form. We offer a wide range of Level 3 Qualifications both at A Level and BTEC and are a truly comprehensive Sixth Form. We believe that our school is like a family and the relationship between staff and students is a friendly and supportive one.
The Sixth Form play a major part in this family by supporting KS3 and KS4 students, guiding and encouraging them through their education.
All Sixth Form students have constant access to help should they need it. In addition to subject teachers, they are able to speak with Form Tutors, a Careers Adviser, and the Head/ Deputy Head of Sixth Form, all of whom will take an interest in their progress, both academically and emotionally.
We are very proud to be the only school in Hertfordshire who run their own independent football education programme. We currently have both male (EC FA Champions) and female teams (EC FA Champions).
Both teams play in the ECFA league; Cat 2, National Cup and FA Youth Cup. We have strong links with Luton Town Ladies, Hertford Town FC, United Sports USA and Future Elite Sports. In the four years the academy has been running, seven students have received scholarships to the USA with a further 8 being accepted in 2017.
