St Nicholas Catholic Sixth Form is increasingly admitting students from schools across the Mid Cheshire areas who recognise the value of continuing their education within a well-structured school-based environment. All students receive personal and outstanding pastoral care, and we equally seek applications from both Catholics and Non-Catholics alike.

“It’s a really welcoming environment and all teachers are incredibly helpful. They genuinely care about all the students and go above and beyond to help everyone achieve the best they can”                   – Lydia Risley Year 12

Teachers at St Nicholas work tirelessly to ensure that students achieve the ambitions for the next stage in their lives. We are very proud of the university and careers guidance we offer our students and our progression rates of students who are successfully placed at Russell group Universities is consistently well above the national average.

Northwich Guardian:

“Excellent careers education, information, advice and guidance ensure that progression from the sixth form to higher education, further education, employment or apprenticeships is a key strength of the school.”       – Ofsted 2019

We are well aware that achieving academic excellence is no longer enough to achieve in a competitive, modern day Britain. With this in mind we have developed a varied programme of enrichment to allow all students to tailor make their own bespoke programme.  

This enables them to explore their own interests and allows many different opportunities to acquire and develop the skills which are highly sort after by both university admissions tutors and employers. For example, students have the opportunity to travel to remote places on the Sixth Form expedition; Borneo, Botswana and the Greek Islands are some of the recent expeditions where students have been heavily involved with charity-based projects whilst in the country.

Northwich Guardian:

Opportunities such as mentoring, running fundraising and sports events, developing leaderships skills through applying to become Senior Prefects, whilst at the same time contributing to the life of the whole school, its ethos and values allow St Nicholas to prepare students for life, long after completion of their A Level exams.

We believe, unequivocally, that St Nicholas Sixth Form offers students the independence of a college but with the personal support and guidance of a Sixth Form.

We look forward to meeting you at our Sixth Form Open Evening on Thursday 14th October from 6pm-8pm.
