As a highly successful local sixth form with a wide variety of A Level and Level 3 BTEC courses, we offer young people from across our local area outstanding opportunities. Year after year our sixth form students achieve excellent exam results, securing places at Britain’s top universities and on competitive degree apprenticeships. It is our responsibility to provide our students with a stepping stone to success, and we are extremely proud that in the last four years alone 12 students have received offers to study at Oxford and Cambridge and 3 have received Oxbridge offers this year. 

Our partnership with the highly regarded multi academy trust, The Futures Trust, means that JC6 has a bright and exciting future. As our students progress through their two years of sixth form study, they will experience high expectations and inspirational teaching, a range of enriching activities beyond the classroom and a learning environment which fosters belonging, independence and aspiration.

Furthermore, our partnership with The Futures Trust brings with it significant investment into our school buildings and facilities, enabling us to create a much improved and truly outstanding learning environment for all.

Working together with The Futures Trust, JC6 is building brighter futures for its students, its staff and the community of Hinckley.

We look forward to welcoming you.
