Sixth Form

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Goresbrook School’s sixth form prospectus.

Goresbrook Secondary School opened in September 2016 to provide an exceptional education for students in Barking and Dagenham. We started with a cohort of enthusiastic and industrious year 7 students, who are currently our founding year 12 cohort. We aim to be one of the best sixth form provisions in the country, ensuring that all young people leave us with the real option to succeed at the very best universities.

At the core of our offer is an academic A level curriculum, designed to equip students to meet the challenges of university and life as successful adults. Alongside our academic offer is an extensive enrichment provision, catering to the diverse interests, ambitions and talents of our students. Goresbrook Sixth Form students benefit from a dedicated, new sixth form building that opened this September.

I am extremely excited to grow our sixth form over the coming years, and to meet you and your family.

Goresbrook Sixth Form was established with the aim to provide an exceptional A Level offer in the borough. As a selective sixth form we are committed to securing exceptional attainment and outcomes for students in order to progress to top universities nationally and internationally or equivalent. Students study a robust curriculum where diverse knowledge, key skills and meaningful experiences are embedded to enable success at A level, university and their future careers. Hard work, resilience, independence and motivation are traits we hone over the course of the two years in order for students to meet the expectations required of higher education.

Our sixth form is linked to a variety of institutions to support students with enrichment opportunities alongside our in-school offer. We welcome students from a range of backgrounds with the intrinsic drive to succeed.

I look forward to meeting you all soon.
