WELCOME TO SIXTH FORM

We are hugely proud of our sixth form here at the Math school. They gain exceptional results, receive a wide range of fantastic opportunities, make a great contribution to the whole school community and go on to some of the best universities in the country. I am very pleased that you are considering Sir Joseph Williamson’s Mathematical School for your sixth form education. When you embark upon sixth form study, you begin an exciting but demanding journey, a journey on which we look forward to supporting you in.

In order to succeed in an increasingly complex and competitive world, young people need academic qualifications of the highest order, as well as a strongly developed sense of resilience, resourcefulness, and flexibility. However, although your academic progress is of the utmost importance, we at the Math believe that education is about more than gaining qualifications: it’s about building a better future for yourself and your community.

We want our sixth formers to go on to become confident, successful and happy members of society as well as leaders in their chosen fields. By attending the sixth form here, you will certainly be given every opportunity to become all of these things.

To contact the Sixth Form Team please email: sixthform@sjwms.org.uk

If you wish to report your child’s absence please call 01634 844008 and select option 2 (for Sixth Form absences) or email the sixth form team on the email address above.

MESSAGE FROM THE HEADTEACHER

I am very pleased that you are considering Sir Joseph Williamson’s Mathematical School for your sixth form education. When you embark upon sixth form study, you begin an exciting but demanding journey, a journey on which we would be honoured to join you.

In order to succeed in an increasingly complex and competitive world, young people need academic qualifications of the highest order, as well as a strongly developed sense of resilience, resourcefulness, and flexibility. However, although your academic progress is of the utmost importance, we at the Math believe that education is about more than gaining qualifications: it’s about building a better future for yourself and your community.

We want our sixth formers to go on to become confident, successful and happy members of society as well as leaders in their chosen fields. I hope that after reading this prospectus, you will have a better idea as to why we take such enormous pride in our establishment.

MESSAGE FROM THE HEAD OF THE SIXTH FORM

To become a member of the Sixth Form is to take a very important step.

You will be expected to work hard and to understand the nature of the responsibilities which you, as a senior student, have towards the whole school community. You will be expected to set a good example by way of appearance, dress, behaviour and attitude to younger pupils.

You will be regarded as a young adult and there will be greater freedom than you experienced in Years 7 to 11. If being adult means accepting responsibility for one’s own actions and taking responsibility for the welfare of others, then there is enormous scope for both boys and girls to grow into this role in the Sixth Form at Sir Joseph Williamson’s Mathematical School.

If you are committed to further study and if you wish to make a positive contribution to the school, to maintain its standards and traditions, I shall be delighted to consider an application from you. 

Mr K Bailey
