We are delighted  to announce that we have joined in a partnership with Bootroom Academies and will be acting as a host school to initially run Further Education sports qualifications for 16 to 19 year olds. The course offers UCAS points and enables students to progress onto Higher Education should they wish. All students on the course will also gain work experience, being mentored by the Bootroom Academies highly skilled Coaches. On successful completion of the qualification Bootroom Academies also provides students with the opportunity to apply for jobs within the sports industry, up-skilling them on how to write an effective CV and how to prepare for a recruitment process; enabling the next generation of students to have a future in the sector they love.

As the partnership develops, there will be further opportunities for our pupils to benefit from courses, coaching and education from Bootroom Academies.

lh welcomeOn behalf of Ormskirk School, I would like to welcome you to the Sixth Form College.

Our sixth form is built around a set of core values:

  • Meeting the needs of every student
  • Raising students’ expectations of what they can achieve
  • Valuing tradition and innovation to provide the best we can for all students
  • Being inclusive and collaborative and providing a supportive environment where all students can flourish and reach their full potential.

Students are supported in their journey to higher education or training and apprenticeship with a systematic programme of taught sessions, talks and visits. We also have links with universities including Edge Hill, Liverpool and Cambridge.

Success in the College is all about partnership.  You will also find that you get out exactly what you put in. Life is about more than just your choice of A-levels, though.  All students take part in a wide range of extra-curricular enrichment activities – whether in sport, drama, art or music, or in service to the school or local community.  Volunteering in these ways demonstrates a commitment to the school and often, younger pupils in the school community.  Sixth Form students play a vital role as role models and benefit greatly from broadening their horizons and experiences in this way.  In addition, competition for places on the best degree courses at university is extremely fierce at the moment and showing endeavour and commitment outside of your A-Level subjects is crucial for admissions tutors when considering whether to offer you a place or not.

The sixth form section of the website provides an insight into life in the sixth form, both inside and outside the classroom, demonstrating the hard work and commitment of our students of whom I am immensely proud.

Director of Sixth Form

Budget: Student Finance Announcement

In the July 2015 Budget the Chancellor announced changes to higher education student finance. In order to ensure you have the updated information we have detailed the changes below.

  • from September 2016 all means tested student maintenance grants will be replaced with loans. This will not affect students starting courses in 2015/16 or already at university
  • maintenance support available in loans will increase to the highest level ever for students from low-income households – by £766 to £8,200 for those studying away from home outside London and to £10,702 for those in London
  • university will remain free at the point of entry – most new full-time students will not pay up front, and graduates only have to repay their loans when they are earning above £21,000
  • grants for students who are carers, disabled or have dependants will still be available
  • tuition fee loans for 2016/17 remain the same.
