Welcome to the Retford Oaks Academy Sixth Form. Based on a philosophy of being dedicated to excellence, we are committed to enabling all students to realise their goals and ambitions at the highest possible levels.
We offer a wide and diverse curriculum, delivered by experts both within our academy, and in conjunction with our partners at Tuxford Academy. Our staff continually strive to raise aspirations, and set challenging but achievable targets in support of excellent student progress.
Additionally, they provide exceptional pastoral care to help students move on to either higher education or employment. Our programme of enrichment activities provides valuable opportunities for personal and cultural development, together with community involvement.
We promote a supportive learning environment which allows and encourages students to ask questions and challenge thinking on a range of local, national and global matters and so become active, informed citizens of the wider world.
Sixth form students are encouraged to take responsibility within the academy and beyond, acting as positive role models for younger students and inspiring them in their learning.
We offer a bespoke career education programme, with a dedicated advisor on site, which provides tailored advice and guidance to support future aspirations. Effective support is available for university or job applications, CV writing and interview skills to help you take the next steps at the end of your sixth form courses.
We are always pleased to welcome prospective sixth formers into the academy and operate an open door policy. If you would like to visit us to find out more about our sixth form, talk to some of our present students and see the academy in action, we would be happy to arrange a tour for you. Come and see for yourself what makes us ‘Oaks and Proud’.
