Welcome to Northumberland East Sixth Form (NE6)

Choosing where to study at sixth form is one of the most important decisions you will make. Not only does this choice pave the way for your career path or further study at university, but it also helps to build a foundation for adult life.


Our team of tutors will be there to guide you through all of the key decisions in your two/three years with us through:

  • specialised events to cater for all future destinations such as universities, apprenticeships, college or employment
  • a ‘bridging course’ for all prospective students to attend and participate in taster lessons with additional skill sessions to help prepare for that large step from GCSE and Level 2 BTEC to A Level and Level 3
  • guest speakers to motivate and provide aspirations for future destinations after successful study
  • specialised advice on the university application process – how to successfully navigate UCAS and gain offers from your preferred university
  • close links to Durham and Newcastle Universities with opportunities to gain lowered university offers.


We have a wide range of enrichment activities set up to help with your university applications. You can:

  • Choose to participate in activities which are already set up or show your initiative and set up your own, the support will always be there
  • contribute to our school charity – organise and run an event
  • participate in one of our clubs or societies which cater for all interests inside and outside the school environment
  • mentor or tutor students in our lower school and become the role model that raises the aspirations of others
  • take part in one of the many trips that the school offers from trips to Italy and France to charity-driven events to Romania, Tanzania or South Africa.
