Outstanding results

Silverdale Sixth Form is one of the most successful in the city, indeed in the entire country.

We pride ourselves on the exceptionally high levels of attainment and progress achieved by our students.
The close academic and pastoral relationship between students and staff results in sixth formers fulfilling
their potential and beyond.

The vast majority of subjects, including Biology, Chemistry, Business, Maths, Physics, Psychology and Sociology among others, help students make such outstanding progress that they are ranked among
the top 25% in the country.

Indeed the independent assessment of attainment and progress at Silverdale Sixth Form as conducted by Alps concluded that “Student performance is in the top 10% when compared with the performance of the top 25% of Sixth Forms and Sixth Form colleges nationally.”

2017 results

  • 89% of passes at A* to C.
