About Us

We opened our Sixth Form in September 2011 and over the past twelve years, we have had the privilege of educating almost 1000 students across 25 A-Level and vocational subjects. Our students thrive academically, personally and socially through the exceptional teaching and pastoral care they receive during their time with us and long after they leave. 

When you join us as a Sixth Form student, you’ll be encouraged to explore the whole range of your talents. Yes, we want you to reach your academic potential, but we also want you to enjoy yourself, find out about who you are, and prepare to use your passion, abilities and personality out in the world! The two years are packed full of new experiences and opportunities and, alongside the hard work, there is plenty of time for fun! We continue to build the BTH family in the Sixth Form and strongly believe that once you have been a student at BTHCC Sixth Form, you remain part of our family for life!

This means that there is always something extra to get involved with in Sixth Form at Blessed Thomas Holford, above and beyond your studies. By taking part in these extra opportunities, you’ll not only be having fun, meeting new people, or strengthening existing friendships – you’ll also be developing important skills for work and life.

These activities include fantastic trips both in the UK and abroad, with recent visits including Poland, Berlin and Auschwitz.

As a Sixth Former you can lead on charity and fundraising activities, and you can even form your own clubs and societies. In our local community, you can get involved in supporting the local foodbanks, providing Christmas hampers to the elderly or hosting Macmillan coffee mornings.

As a student here, you are an integral part of our whole-school community; and can support students in other year groups through subject mentoring and year 7 buddying. If you wish to represent student opinion on Sixth Form matters, you can also apply to join the Sixth Form Ambassador team.

Our staff and students also plan many events and activities to celebrate diversity and mark awareness with things like 'Black History Month' and 'International Day'.
