St Robert of Newminster Catholic School & 6th Form College is a mixed Sixth Form of over 450 students, within an 11-18 school of nearly 1600 students in total. We are a diverse college that welcomes students from a wide range of other schools, from a wide geographical area. St Robert’s enjoys an excellent local and regional reputation. Our positive Catholic ethos, integral to all that we do, provides the basis for the highest standards of care, relationships and academic achievement. We are proud of our Sixth Form’s place within the community, and we provide a caring, inclusive, challenging and supportive environment for young adults to flourish and achieve excellence.

We offer an extremely varied curriculum with almost 40 courses, as well as a wide range of activities and personal development opportunities. We are committed in our drive to achieve the very best for our students, and our consistently high results, over many years, are testament to the quality of provision on offer. Our focus on high quality teaching throughout the Sixth Form provides a stimulating and challenging classroom experience, backed up by a strong pastoral and tutorial system.

The implementation of the TASS Dual Career Accreditation Scheme is an exciting new initiative within our Sixth Form. The scheme will ensure every high performing student athlete attending our college has the best opportunity to fulfil both their academic and sporting potential. Every student who is placed on the scheme will receive an individual support plan which includes such things as:

– A series of workshops which will assist with student lifestyle, academic progress, career aspirations and sports performance.

– Timetable and assessment flexibility when required.

– An appointed member of staff who will monitor their progress and be a point of contact should anything arise.

– Individual Career advice

– Access to Regional and National competition.

It is the students and staff who make our Sixth Form such a welcoming and inspiring place to learn and develop. Working with TASS will give our college the resources and expertise to ensure the quality of support for all our student athletes is of the highest quality.
