VI6 Shortlisted For Times Educational Awards

The VI6 project which allows sixth form students to experience A levels in a higher educational setting was shortlisted in the prestigious Times Higher Education Awards in the Widening Participation and Outreach Initiative of the Year category. The VI6 project is the only project of its kind in the country where students can gain a head start in experiencing university life while pursuing the subjects that really inspire them.

The programme is a partnership between the University of Essex, Clacton County High School, Philip Morant School and College, Clacton Coastal Academy, The Colne Community College and Thurstable High School. It has offered a wider choice of subjects for students and those who have participated in the programme have valued the opportunities to study subjects they might not be able to access in their own schools and see what university life is like.

The facilities are excellent and there is an ongoing programme of joint sessions; lectures; seminars and activities to prepare students for their next steps. Thanks to the VI6 project student applications for higher education at partner schools have increased to 87%. The links between schools and the University of Essex have become closer thanks to the VI6 project and this really supports our work with students. The subjects currently offered at VI6 are Further Maths; Economics; French; Philosophy and Ethics; and Geography. If you wish to be considered for this programme as an option within your studies, please contact Miss Leatherby.

"The overall effectiveness of the sixth form is good."

Dear students, parents and carers,

At the Clacton Coastal Academy Sixth Form it is our aim to provide our students with the curriculum, support and ambition needed to meet and exceed expectations. 

Whether students have ambitions of going on to University, access a Higher Level Apprenticeship or go directly into employment, we have the courses and expertise needed to ensure students are successful. 

Having been in the Top 25% of Providers Nationally for our Vocational courses in 2011 through to 2014, we are well placed to offer our students amazing opportunities when completing their Sixth Form education. Indeed, when coupled with the attainment on more Academic courses we are pleased to see over half of our students following a route into Higher Education.

With the Department for Education now expecting post-16 students to remain in Education or Training, we feel that the collaboration between Clacton Coastal Academy, Clacton County High School, Tendring Enterprise Studio School and Colchester Institute, the Consortium will be well positioned to guarantee a pathway that is suited to all student needs and interests.

"Strong leadership in the sixth form has driven improvements in teaching and raised the aspirations of students. This has led to impressive achievement in vocational subjects and rising achievement in academic ones."

The Sixth Form Team

 Assistant Vice Principal - Key Stage 5 and CIAG

Miss Leatherby

The role of a truly great education is not only to provide young people with qualifications, but to develop their personal skills, attributes and aspirations that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Every single young person has the potential to succeed, and the most fulfilling part of my job is seeing our students seize the opportunities we provide here at CCAVI

I started teaching English in 2005 and have been a part of the CCA senior leadership team since 2012. My core responsibility has been to ensure that students receive the best possible information, advice and guidance to raise their aspirations and expand their horizons. I have joined the KS5 leadership team this year and look forward to developing our outstanding CEIAG programme to help further develop our sixth form students.

"Teaching in the sixth form is good across both academic and vocational subjects. Teachers’ subject knowledge is particularly strong. There is mutual respect and trust between teachers and students which creates a very positive climate for learning. This enables students to develop confidence which helps them to make more rapid progress."

"The quality of the guidance and support available to students is a strength of the sixth form."
