Mr Puddy – Director of Friesland Sixth Form
Friesland School has an excellent reputation and record for academic excellence. Furthermore we are proud to offer our students a broad and balanced curriculum. We have consistently achieved an average point score per student that places us in the top five schools in Derbyshire.
Students leave Friesland Sixth Form to embark upon the next exciting and productive phase of their lives, whether at Oxbridge, the Russell Group Universities, Art College, Higher Apprenticeships, Employment or Gap Years.
We provide a diverse range of extended educational and social opportunities, including an annual American Exchange, Ski Trips and residential visits to Namibia, Poland and Russia.
Theatre trips, sporting fixtures and cultural visits feature, alongside tailor made higher education workshops and extensive careers advice.
We welcome substantial numbers of external students each year and place great emphasis upon our individual support and guidance for students.
We offer a warm, friendly and purposeful environment, which you will see for yourself on our Open Evening. If you cannot attend on this particular date, please contact Mrs Tideswell, the Sixth Form Administrator, to arrange a tour and informal discussion with the Director of Sixth Form, Mr Puddy.
