Sixth Form

Welcome to post 16 learning at TMCS. Our Sixth form is a vibrant, close-knit, and happy community of students who study a range of subjects and courses from GCSE, A levels, and Btec qualifications. We have a 'believe and achieve' ethos and offer excellent pastoral support, with Catholicity at the heart of all that we do. Students have daily Tutor time sessions and study relevant topics such as mental health issues, current affairs, study skills, and managing finances. Students also receive sessions on UCAS applications, careers and employability guidance as well as various workshops, school visits, and rewards trips.

We offer many enrichment opportunities including

  • Peer mentoring
  • Student leadership
  • Sport and fitness
  • Curriculum champions
  • Charity team
  • Debating
  • Sixth Form Committee
  • Extended project (EPQ)
