At Selly Oak we seek to offer our 6th form students a balanced and rewarding curriculum that will equip them with the skills and qualifications they need to lead a happy and fulfilling life.

During their time in 6th form all students will work towards improving their skills in Maths and English up to Level 2 standard as well as taking part in a Personal & Social Development course that will help them develop the social skills required for life after sixth form.
