Outstanding results







We are in the top 1% of sixth forms nationally!

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
