Benton Park Leeds: Virtual Sixth Form Open Event
Benton Park’s new building and Sixth Form centre is almost ready to welcome visitors but until it is, we are bringing all of the information and resources to you for our Virtual Sixth Form Open Event. Here, Headteacher Delia Martin welcomes parents and potential students who are considering their Post 16 options.
The brand new Benton Park School building, complete with its specialist Sixth Form centre, is almost ready for students and visitors.
We are incredibly proud of our Sixth Form and all the amazing achievements of our students. Our young people are at the heart of everything we do. We value each and every one of them as an individual and our high aspirations and excellent climate for great learning, success and opportunity, enables all of our students to achieve their full potential.
Our standards and expectations are incredibly high for our young people and in return we offer a nurturing, supportive and challenging environment which allows them to thrive and develop their learning both within the classroom and beyond. We are very proud of the strong culture of pastoral support and guidance that we offer. We work hard to ensure that students enjoy their time with us, and feel safe and supported.
As part of our Sixth Form offer you will find a broad range of high quality courses, delivered through excellent teaching and learning. In addition to academic excellence, students are able to access a wide range of extra-curricular and enrichment opportunities to help them develop leadership and employability skills. Whatever goals our students set for themselves, we encourage them to have high aspirations and we give them the skills and support to achieve these. Students leave us prepared and confident ready to access a wide range of destinations, including prestigious universities, apprenticeships and employment.
Our work is fully underpinned by our five key values: Resilience, Collaboration, Inspiration, Compassion and Endeavour. These run through all aspects of school life and in pursuing these values, our aim is for our students to be the very best version of themselves when they leave us.
It is an incredibly exciting time for our Sixth Form as we move into our brand new state of art school with amazing facilities and specialist teaching areas. As part of this move we have also developed a bespoke Sixth Form centre which will give our young people the independence and additional level of freedom which will mark out their move to Post 16 study.
Benton Park Sixth Form is a fantastic place to work and learn and I feel privileged to be leading the school at this exciting time. We have gathered all the information you need ready for a Virtual Open Event.
