JC6 offers a uniquely welcoming environment where small class sizes mean that students receive the attention and support they deserve. All JC6 students are made to feel safe, valued and happy and belong to a supportive, diverse and vibrant community.
As well as a large number of new students joining our sixth form from surrounding local high schools, each year a high percentage of Hinckley Academy students decide to stay with us, meaning that for many students we are the cumulation of a seven-year journey. All students enjoy a 'fresh start', as they begin the next exciting chapter in their education.
As many of our specialist team have extensive experience teaching both KS5 and KS4, we are able to shape a unique sixth form provision built on an understanding of what our young people need at this stage of their education. Our course leads understand the knowledge and experience of Year 11 students and how best to build upon their experiences to aid personal growth and academic success as they transition to post-16. At JC6 we endeavour to offer a unique blend of both academic and extracurricular opportunities to help our young people to build their brighter future.
