About the 6th Form
Summer 2023: Outstanding results placing the school in the top 10% of schools nationally.
Nower Hill students consistently deliver to their full potential and this is down to the high quality and well rounded education that they receive. The key to our success in terms of academic achievement is having high standards and teachers that dedicate themselves to ensuring students achieve their goals. The students in the 6th Form are not only courteous, polite and well-mannered, but also extremely ambitious and we are keen to develop them to become the leaders of the future.
About Nower Hill 6th Form
Nower Hill 6th Form students value the outstanding advice and guidance given to ensure an effective transition both into 6th Form and onto Higher Education. We are very proud of our track record with exam success. Our dedicated, inspiring and supportive teachers are committed to enabling all students to achieve their full potential and this has led to our 6th Form being heavily oversubscribed. There is a bursary available to all 6th Form students who meet the financial eligibility criteria.
At Nower Hill we specialise in delivering A Levels and offer 30 different Level 3 subjects catering for the full range of interests and academic demands of our students. The vast range of subjects on offer at Nower Hill is one of the reasons why we are so popular. No other school within the Borough of Harrow offers a wider range of subjects. Ofsted rated the 6th Form as outstanding and stated: The curriculum provides an “extensive range” of 6th Form courses. As part of the Harrow 6th Form Collegiate, if a student wanted to study one of the few courses we don’t offer, this could be taken as a subject at another school within the Collegiate.
We have a large team of talented professionals dedicated to working exclusively in the 6th Form. The support students receive is excellent and we pride ourselves on looking after our students. Each member of the team has significant experience to pass on to the students and this means there is a lot of expert support available. The 6th Form Heads of Year know the issues and common challenges that surround 6th Form study and the transition from GCSE to A Level. They also get to know every single one of their students and acquaint themselves with any circumstances relating to students in the 6th Form that might need additional support. Students also have access to a dedicated UCAS Adviser, a dedicated Careers Managers and dedicated Study Supervisors who can provide tailored study support. In addition, students will have their Form Tutors who they will get to know very well during their 6th Form Journey.
