Welcome to Our Sixth Form

We are delighted to welcome you to our Sixth Form.

Founded in 1884 St Peter’s Collegiate Academy is one of the oldest in Wolverhampton and enjoys a fine tradition of excellence and achievement. We are very much part of our community being proud of our ethos, culture, and traditions. We are creative, innovative, and forward-thinking and do all of this with faith being at the core.

We aim to make a real and significant difference in the lives of each and every student we educate regardless of background. Every student has a vast array of extracurricular clubs and activities that they can choose to join whatever their interest. The extensive opportunities available are created by an Academy that has acknowledged excellence in a range of areas but which is able to balance the academic, pastoral and extracurricular needs of the community with that of the individuals that form its student body. We are fortunate to have talented and motivated staff who are able to nurture the best from each and every student.

In August, we celebrated another year of outstanding results at GCSE and  A Level. This high performance reflects the continuing dedication of our teachers, and other support staff, it is also a reflection of the strong partnerships with parents to enable every student to achieve her/his very best both academically and by building her/his good character.

We are a genuinely happy school with students and staff working together in harmony building fantastic relationships. We have fun here and we often laugh together. We recognise that choosing the right Sixth Form is a difficult decision so please do look at what we offer here at St Peter’s and we look forward to receiving your application.

With my best wishes. Stay safe.

Jon Arnold – Principal

Sixth Form Enhancement and Enrichment Programme

At St Peter’s we aim to realise every child’s God-given potential and this is also applied to our Enrichment Programme. This compulsory module allows students to create their own bespoke extra-curricular enrichment from 6 different categories, known as ‘roads’, which will continue to build on and expand their interests beyond what they learn in the classroom. The roads available to students are Academic, Athletics and the Arts, Practical Skills, Work Experience, Academy Community, and Charity, and each is connected to our school ethos as they are linked with a core Christian value. Each half term, students will choose a different road to explore, for example, a student may choose to participate in ‘Crash Course University Cooking’ in the Practical Skills road for the first half term and then the following half term explore the ‘Film Club’ option in the Athletics and the Arts road. This ensures a holistic approach to education in St Peter’s Sixth Form and provides students with many experiences that can be useful for their own wellbeing as well as for future university, apprenticeship, and job applications.

Is there any financial support available?

Yes. If you find that financial circumstances are a barrier to you studying then we will help you access financial support. The government Bursary Fund supports 16 to 19 year old students who face financial difficulties and those who most need help are supported with the costs of staying in education.

At St Peter’s we are able to award discretionary bursaries to individual students. These awards are intended to help students stay in education by removing the financial barriers they may otherwise face. Awards can be made to help students with costs in the following areas:

  • transport
  • meals
  • books
  • Equipment
  • Uniform

Our  A Level results are a testament to this with our sixth formers going on to study at some of the best universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, Birmingham, Nottingham, Manchester and Liverpool or further afield with some students studying overseas. A growing number of students are going on to Apprenticeships, with a large proportion now opting for Finance and Engineering.
