Our purpose at Beechen Cliff is to develop aspiration, confidence and independence.
After two years in Sixth Form, we want students to be able to thrive as well-rounded individuals who can make a positive contribution to society. The opportunities we offer to students to develop themselves academically, personally and socially are unrivalled and Sixth Formers quickly feel part of the school, regardless of where they study in Year 11.
We believe our balanced curriculum is unique; we look forward to sharing it with you.

16 to 19 Bursary Fund
Students who were entitled to Free School Meals or Pupil Premium in Year 11 are strongly advised to apply for a 16 to 19 Bursary.
The 16 to 19 Bursary is also available to students who are considered to be from a low-income family and/or who need assistance with the costs associated with studying.
Please use the Online Application Form to apply for a 16 to 19 Bursary. You will need to provide electronic versions of your proof of income and/or benefits, i.e. photos or scanned copies.
All applications will be reviewed by the Head of Sixth Form who will then contact you directly to let you know whether your son/daughter is eligible to receive a Bursary Fund.

Department of Education Funding for English and Maths
We have been allocated additional funding to support our students in the Sixth Form who are retaking their English or Mathematics GCSE exams in order to improve their grades to a 4 or above.
We provide 2 hours of weekly tuition from our English and Maths teachers for these students on top of their A Level or Level 3 timetable and support in the lead up to the public examinations in November 2021 and Summer 2022.
