Letter from the Deputy Headteacher

The Joseph Whitaker School’s Post 16 Application System is now open


Unfortunately due to COVID 19 restrictions it is not possible to hold our Post 16 Evening as planned in November.


We are a high performing Sixth Form with outstanding academic success.  Each year a significant number of our students successfully go on to Russell Group universities.  We also welcome applications from students currently attending other schools.  Many such students join us each year and have a very positive experience both academically and socially.


Any external student interested in applying to study at The Joseph Whitaker School Sixth Form is encouraged to contact Mr Jacques, Head of Sixth Form (jacquesa@josephwhitaker.org), who will arrange a tour of the school for both the student and their parents.


During this visit Mr Jacques will explain the following:


  • Examination results for The Joseph Whitaker School Sixth Form from 2017-2020.  This will enable them to see in real terms the high academic success experienced by our students over the last three years
  • Post 18 destinations – 44% of our students went to Russell Group universities in 2020.
  • The application process   All applications are online using the link below or via the school website
  • The Post 16 Prospectus is available on our website or by clicking the link below.
  • The entry criteria for Post 16 study. 
  • The wider benefits of sixth form life
  • Enrichment opportunities
  • UCAS Support
  • Careers Advice
  • Work Experience
  • Leadership
  • Duke of Edinburgh Award
  • EPQ
  • The Sixth Form Centre in which both the café and the private study areas unique to our sixth form students are based

Please do not hesitate to contact the school if any further support is required.


The closing date for applications is 1st December 2020.


Yours sincerely


Michael Croft

Deputy Headteacher
