Our school is a private education centre, which offers an alternative to large mainstream schools.
Our aim is to provide an environment which is conducive to independent learning, in line with U.K. educational philosophy of constructivism and methodologies based on blended learning; a place where students are engaged and inspired.
As a multi-denominational, co-educational school, we encourage all our students to achieve their full potential, both educationally and personally.
We do this by creating a caring and happy environment, where our dedicated teachers can give expert, individual attention to all students, across the widest range of subjects available anywhere on the coast.
Most schools restrict a student's choice of subjects by placing them into option blocks. At Emerald Sixth Form, we focus on providing the subjects which the students want to study.
We have hugely experienced teachers from a range of international backgrounds, who can inspire our students to perform beyond their expectations in very small classes, normally 1 to 10 or often less.
Our students benefit from
constant academic mentoring.
continuous pastoral care.
study skill seminars.
information literacy sessions.
extra English language from our TEFL teacher.

After the devastation of storm Filomena, a group of our students from Emerald Sixth Form carried out a beach clean in our local area.
We managed to fill three bin bags with an assortment of non biodegradable waste. It was shocking how much plastic and baby wipes we found in just a short stretch of beach.
The students even received a round of applause from members of the public!
Let's hope we can encourage more people from our community to do the same.

Emerald Sixth Form is delighted to announce that we are opening again on Monday 31 August and we are accepting enrolments now.
We are a small school and we will be restricting our student number to a maximum of 30 for September. This will enable us to practise social distancing within the school if necessary.
All our classrooms can accommodate 4 students, while maintaining social distances.
We have two indoor areas, which can be used to teach classes up to a maximum of 8 students, with social distancing in place.
We can also use the outside areas for teaching, which will also ensure that we are able to maintain social distancing.
Moreover, as we are a small private school, we can open under the rules of a small business. Therefore, if larger schools are unable to operate, we can continue to function normally alongside other small businesses.
Contact us now for more information and to arrange a visit to our wonderful school.
