    Hit The Ground Running

    Welcome to Salesian College Sixth Form!

    We're really looking forward to welcoming you formally in September and hope you're excited about joining our community.

    In our Sixth Form, we place a significant emphasis on students taking personal responsibility for their own learning, through extension work, additional reading and independent study. We believe that these are skills that will enable you to make the most of your time here and develop healthy habits for your future studies.

    To this end, each subject has set a list of tasks to be completed in your own time before the beginning of term. Tasks vary depending on the nature of the subject: you may be asked to read, watch, listen, subscribe or just think. You should do so with an open mind and a positive attitude! This is not meant to burden you, but to prepare you for your chosen subjects and for A-Level study in general.

    If you need some technical support with this page, please email Miss Kent (

    Have a fantastic summer, relax and we'll see you in September.
