"The staff are extremely dedicated and keen to encourage the best in every student." - Sixth Form student.
I am very proud of Sixth Form at Dronfield Henry Fanshawe School. I strongly believe that it is an outstanding place to study. We are a school with a rich history of academic success, which shares equal measure with the level of care and guidance given to students. The Sixth Form at DHFS is one that supports, challenges, inspires and fascinates every learner that enters through its doors.
There are over 300 students in our Sixth Form, the majority of which come from our Year 11 but with some external applicants. Most of our Year 13 students' progress into Higher Education and our students have an excellent reputation for securing places at Oxbridge, Russell Group universities and other highly sought-after higher education establishments.
Our A level teachers are hard working and enthusiastic, all academic specialists in their subject areas. We maintain a supportive and caring culture at DHFS and our teachers work closely with their Sixth Form students. Lessons at Sixth Form provide a strong academic stimulus that inspires our learners to be creative, evaluative and analytical, whilst preparing them for lifelong learning. Our Sixth Form students have a key role in our vertical tutoring system; they are seen as the role models of the school and will often gain valuable experience mentoring some of the younger students.
We are committed to providing the best possible learning environment, with high quality, stimulating and challenging teaching, using a range of excellent resources through our Technology College Status. The Sixth Form area is currently being developed to meet the needs of our learners with an extended common room/diner, private study area and ICT facilities. We have also established a WiFi system enabling learners to bring in their own devices to work on. Our aim is to treat students as individuals and to provide appropriate support to enable them to achieve their full potential within a high achieving, disciplined, safe and healthy community.
