Headteachers' Welcome

Didcot Sixth Form (DSF) is a unique partnership between two specialist schools, Didcot Girls’ School (Languages and Enterprise) and St Birinus (Languages and Technology), creating a vibrant mixed Sixth Form utilising both the girls’ and boys’ school sites and staff expertise. The values of both our schools join together to create a sixth form provision which promotes high quality learning in an inclusive learning environment based on respectful relationships. Our sixth form students play a full role in the life of the school in which they are based, as well as in the sixth form itself.

In August 2012, Didcot Girls’ School converted to academy status and created the Didcot Academy of Schools Multi Academy Trust. St Birinus School joined Didcot Academy of Schools in September 2015 and we are delighted with the opportunities this creates to further strengthen collaboration between our schools.

DSF currently has over 400 students allowing us to capitalise on the economies of scale this provides. We are able to offer over 30 Advanced Level courses, English and Mathematics GCSE (for those students without a C grade or better), a varied enrichment programme, the support of a tutor and high quality advice and guidance in taking the next step towards higher education, apprenticeships and employment. The progression routes of our students are excellent.

We are very proud of the Didcot Sixth Form. We believe that the provision we offer of a rounded, high quality education is second to none – and our results, year on year, testify to this.

If you are new to the Didcot schools, we hope you will visit and see us in action and that you will then be inspired to make an application. We look forward to welcoming you to the Didcot Sixth Form.

Mrs Rachael Warwick, Headteacher, Didcot Girls’ School, Executive Headteacher of Didcot Academy of Schools
